Dust Analyzer

March 2, 2009
The fundamental principle used by the FineAlyzer is based on the condition that unwanted dust and fines will normally adhere to larger pellets and can be removed by rinsing the test sample with a liquid (preferably demineralized water). This causes the fines and dust in the sample to wash away to the beaker below. These particles are then poured into the filter collection unit, which separates the fines from the water. The weight of the filter paper is accurately measured before and after the collection process and this weight is used to calculate the ppm of the sample. Wet analysis quantifies the amounts of dust with particle sizes from 1.6 to 500 µm.
