Introducing the world’s first tippable, self-sustaining, compact, quiet, water-based condensation particle counter –
it’s like MAGIC!
The new MAGIC™ water-CPC uses a patented, three-stage “moderated” condensational growth system to enlarge particles as small as 5 nm into droplets that are easily detected optically (Hering et al, 2014).
M – Moderated
A – Aerosol
G – Growth with
I – Internal water
C – Cycling
- Environmental air quality studies – especially useful for distributed monitors
- Mobile studies in vehicles, aircraft, aboard ships, on drones and bicycles!
- Indoor air quality monitoring
- Health effects and epidemiology studies
- Workplace monitoring for nanoparticles
Preliminary specifications for the MAGIC CPC instrument:
|Particle Size Range||5 nm -> 3 µm diameter (tested with monodisperse ammonium sulfate aerosol)|
|Concentration Range||0 to 105 particles/cm3|
|Sample Flow Rate||0.3 L/min|
|Working Fluid||Water (distilled or cleaner)|
|Averaging Time||1-300 seconds, user selectable|
|Communications||USB and RS-232 9-pin DIN|
|Power||100-240 VAC / 12 VDC|
|Dimensions||15 x 15 x 20 cm LWH (6 x 6 x 8 in)|
|Weight||1.5 Kg (excluding batteries or power supply)|
Specifications are subject to change without notice.
