High Pressure Diffusing with the HPD III

Clean Dry Air (CDA), Nitrogen, Argon and Carbon dioxide are all non-toxic and non-flammable gases that the HPD III can handle.

Particle counters have a difficult time sampling gas at pressures above sea level, such as 25–100 psi. Connecting a particle counter to pressured air or gas can cause the flowmetering system to fail and the instrument to be damaged.

Particle counting in compressed gas has been addressed by the development of High Pressure Diffusers (HPDs). By enabling some of the air/gas to flow out of the system, HPDs lower the pressure of the gas to around atmospheric pressure, allowing the Lasair III particle counter’s flow-metering system to perform as intended.
