Abstract:

The design, calibration, and operation of the cascade impactor is considered. Basic theory of operation, special design features, laboratory methods of analysis, and practical applications of the instrument are reviewed. This instrument is found to be well adapted for size analysis of aerosols composed of particles from 0.1 to 20 microns in diameter. Some applications of the cascade impactor toward improving the effectiveness of commercial aerosols, such as insecticides and paint sprays, are proposed. Author
