Solid Particle Counting System

The HORIBA MEXA-2000SPCS series measures the number of solid particles from engine exhaust gas in real-time.
The series can complete engine/vehicle certification testing in the latest
regulations (Euro 5/6 and Euro VI), which requires complied dilution systems,
along with R&D testing of engines and particulate filters by direct sampling
without dilution.

  • Certification tests for Euro 5/6 and Euro VI
    MEXA-2000 / 2200SPCS
  • Tests with a partial flow dilution tunnel connected
    MEXA-2200 / 2300SPCS
  • R&D tests with high pressure direct sampling
    MEXA-2100 / 2300SPCS

*1: When ordering, please specify intended applications and expected sampling methods.
*2: Direct sampling at a pressure less than 5 kPa is possible. Acceptable maximum concentration is limited to the same value as the full flow tunnel.
*3: A DSU predilution unit with pressure adjusting function realizes direct sampling for high pressure applications of up to 100 kPa.

  • Compact design

• Easy to install and transport in a laboratory
• Small footprint 

        
     
       
 
  • High performance sampling system

The set DF is not affected by changes in sample pressure in the CVS or
sampling system. The VPR *1 calibration factor (PCRF *2) can be used
for many applications without specific calibration/correction of the diluters
in VPR.
*1 VPR: Volatile Particle Remover
*2 PCRF: Particle Concentration Reduction Factor

  • Various optional units

The combination of the main unit and optional units allows a wide range of applications and sampling configurations.

*1: Only for full flow tunnel.
*2: MEXA-2300SPCS can be used in the measurement method according to the regulation. For detailed information, please contact HORIBA.
*3: Dilution factor of the system should be determined so that the particle concentration after dilution fits into the measuring range.
*4: Allowable range of gas temperature at sample probe inlet depends on the sampling condition, because it is limited as the temperature of diluter in DSU (350 °C or less). For detailed information, please contact HORIBA.
*5: The dimensions depend on customers.
