Real-time Physical and Chemical Characterization of Particulate Matter From a Combustion Source
The Particulate Matter Characterization and System (PMCMS) technique was developed to assist the Air Force to reduce the particulate matter (PM) emissions. The PMCMS will be used to characterize PM within the exhaust of aircraft engines. At present the PMCMS is used as a research tool for investigating soot, PAH, and PM generated in a well stirred reactor (WSR). The RDMA is used for particle segmentation and characterization of particles below 0.4 μm. This broad range particle size and mass spectral analyzer can serve as a diagnostic tool and monitoring device for particulate matter sources.
