NUCON - Model AGT - Aerosol Generator
From Quality Instruments
The NUCON Model AGT is a high-output portable thermal aerosol (DOP or PAO) generator. It can provide up to 241 mL/min of submicron PAO, or 121 mL/min of submicron DOP, aerosol. System pressure indicator and all operational controls are on the front panel. Liquid to gas phase conversion takes place in a continuous stainless steel coil cast in an aluminum block. Heater cartridges and thermal switches are inserted in the block, ensuring maximum thermal conductivity and mass with maximum safety.
- All operations are front panel controlled.
- Rugged design for field use.
- Filling is very easy with quick-connect funnel (no tools required).
- Auto Shutdown failsafe for three modes - electronics overheat, block overheat, or aerosol overheat.
- Leak-tight, long life and safe aerosol generation.
The NUCON Model AGT is unique in its ability to produce large volumes of submicron aerosol in a compact, portable instrument. All critical parameters (temperature, pressure and flow) are precisely controlled for consistent, repeatable performance.
Temperature is controlled by state of the art temperature switches. Flow is set using a built-in liquid flowmeter. A separate ON/OFF switch starts and stops liquid flow to the heater block without changing flow rate settings.
