3340 Laser Aerosol Spectrometer
TSI's Laser Aerosol Spectrometer Model 3340 is a high sensitivity, high resolution general purpose aerosol particle sizer. This 'turn on and measure' instrument allows users to easily measure a size range of 0.09 (90 nm) to 7.5 µm. Complete size distributions are measured in less than a second by simply powering up and sampling.
The 3340 Laser Aerosol Spectrometer is suitable for a wide range of applications; Indoor Air Quality - Atmospheric Research & Environmental Monitoring - Inhalation Toxicology & Exposure Monitoring - Filter Testing
The 3340 is a handy tool to have monitoring your filters or your processes; measuring in a lab; or sampling on field campaigns. It's as useful as your primary aerosol tool, but the 3340 can also provide valuable supplemental information to aerosol measurements based on other sizing techniques (i.e. SMPS, APS, CPC, FMPS, etc.).
Features and Benefits
• Ultra-high Sensitivity & Superior Resolution
• Dynamic Size Range: 0.09 to 7.5µm
• Typical Resolution is within 2.5% of the particle diameter at 0.1µm
• 18,000 part/cm3 at 0.01 L/min
Valuable Addition to Your Aerosol Tool Kit
