Abstract:

Characteristics and aerosol sampling efficiencies of one SpinCon and two pre-production PP Omni model aerosol samplers Omni-2 and Omni-3 Sceptor Industries, Inc., Kansas, MO were determined at the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center. All three samplers have non-traditional wetted-wall cyclones to collect and concentrate aerosols in liquid. The Omni aerosol sampler is designed to be approximately half the weight, half the size, and a quarter of the power of the SpinCon. The sampling efficiency tests were conducted with monodisperses 1- and 3-um fluorescent polystyrene latex PSL microspheres and 3.5- and 5-um fluorescent oleic acid particles.
