Product Details

Size distributions of airborne particles often span a wide size range from a few nm to several µm, which typically exceeds the measurement size range of any one instrument. The Model 390069 Data Merge Software module* offers a consistent method of merging and fitting data files from two well-known TSI aerosol instruments to produce wide-range particle size distribution curves for analysis. The Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer™ (SMPS™) spectrometer is the standard for measuring submicrometer particles, while the Aerodynamic Particle Sizer® (APS™) spectrometer is the most accurate sizer for coarse particles. The advantage of combining these two measurement techniques is that they are related and, unlike optical methods, they require no knowledge of refractive index.

Multimodal distribution functions can be fitted to the data, covering all three modes of particles found in the atmosphere, namely nuclei-, accumulation-, and coarse-mode aerosols. The software is designed to work with a variety of SMPS spectrometers (Model 3034 and Series 3934/3936) and APS spectrometers (Models 3310, 3310A, 3320, and 3321). The instruments may use any version of TSI Aerosol Instrument Manager® software. As a result, wide-range particle size distributions from 0.0025 to 20 µm can be created, with the lower limit determined by the SMPS configuration.
