Features

  • 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: Please contact us for more information on the regulations that the products comply with.
*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: Accuracy of dilution factor check with span gas.
*6: The dimensions depend on customers.
