The Variable Dilution System VDS 562 was especially developed to lower concentration levels of highly concentrated aerosols to adequate concentration levels by one device, without external particle-free air supply and negligible pressure drop.
For optimal aerosol-analytical conditions, several measurement and test applications require a defined reduction of the particle number concentration (VDI 3491). Depending on the application, dilution factors between > 1 up to 1’000’000 can become necessary. In practise, especially the realisation of high dilution factors (> 1’000) is complicated (e.g.: cascading of dilution systems) and is accompanied either by a considerable pressure drop or by an excessive air consumption. The dilution factor of a VDS 562 can be varied within each operation range over approximately one decade. According to the customer’s requirements, one VDS 562 device can be calibrated for multiple flow rates from 28,3 l/min up to 100 l/min.less
