Guide to How Aerosol Particle Counters Work
Aerosol particle counters are built to rapidly count and size contaminant particles in cleanroom air and other controlled environments. Users tend to see this equipment as simply a device which, when the appropriate button is pressed, absolute results are displayed. However, it is important to be aware of the technology within the instrument in order to understand the relevance of the data generated and to put the operation of particle counters in context. An overview of how aerosol particle counters function is provided.
