Rear ¾ view of the Cambustion AAC

Analytical Instrumentation

Since 2002 Cambustion have offered a range of aerosol instruments designed for aerosol science & laboratory applications.

The Aerodynamic Aerosol Classifier (AAC)adds a unique and novel measurement technique to Cambustion's range of aerosol instruments.

The Centrifugal Particle Mass Analyser (CPMA)  offers researchers the ability to characterise particle density and morphology.

The flexible sampling capabilities and and rapid response times of Cambustion's established DMS500 and SCS systems make these highly suited to aerosol laboratory work.

    Aerodynamic Aerosol Classifier

    The Aerodynamic Aerosol Classifier classifies particles between 25nm and 5 microns according only to their aerodynamic diameter. This removes issues associated with charging that can complicate other classification techniques, such as electrical mobility.

    Centrifugal Particle Mass Analyzer

    Updated in 2020, the Centrifugal Particle Mass Analyzer Mk2 (CPMA) allows direct classification of ultrafine particles according to mass:charge ratio. The selection of particles with true reference to their mass makes the CPMA attractive for a range of aerosol science applications.

    DMS500Aerosol size distributions

    Fast Aerosol Sizer

    The DMS500 offers users real-time size distribution measurements between 5nm and 2,500nm at 10Hz.

    The DMS500's ease of use and traceable data, combined with flexible integrated dilution system (allowing sampling of high concentration sources such as combustion burners) have seen hundreds sold worldwide since the first generation in 2002.

    SCSStandalone smoking and vaping machine

    Smoking machine

    The SCS is a standalone smoking and vaping machine, compatible with both tobacco / cannabis combustibles and electronic cigarettes and capable of reproducing standard and custom smoking regimes. The SCS can operate standalone for basic product development, or be used to capture samples for a variety of measurement techniques including GC-MS, HPLC and more. The SCS is also deployed in quality control applications.

  • Aerosol Diffusion Dryer

    Many laboratory aerosol experiments require the removal of moisture from aerosols, often with a requirement to avoid reduction of particle concentration during the process. (This often makes dilution an unattractive solution.)

    The Aerosol Diffusion Dryer uses silica gel to remove water from an aerosol, while maintaining high transmission efficiency of the particles.

  • Electrostatic precipitator for ultrafine aerosols

    The Electrostatic Aerosol Precipitator uses an electrical field to precipitate pre-charged particles out of the flow, while allowing uncharged particles to pass through. 

    The voltage may be varied by the user, resulting in a different "cut" diameter.

    Many aerosol experiments require a means of removing pre-charged particles from the aerosol flow, either to prevent interation with downstream measurements, or to quantify the proportion of un-charged particles to allow compensation in data processing.

    The ESP forms part of the CPMA Electrometer Reference Mass Standard.

    PSLAerosol Size Calibration Testing Kit

    PSL Aerosol Generator

    The PSL Aerosol Generator offers a standalone means of nebulizing and drying PSL, allowing it to be presented directly to an aerosol sizing instrument.

    The kit is able to nebulise a range of commercially available sizes of Polystyrene Latex Spheres as NIST traceable size standards.
