A New Electrical Mobility Particle Sizer Spectrometer for Engine Exhaust Particle Measurements 2004-01-1341

Electrical mobility has a long history as a tool for measuring the particle size of engine exhaust emissions. This paper gives a review of these methods as well as more current methods for making exhaust particle measurements. Each of the methods discussed has a limitation especially for making fast (sub-second) measurements. A new instrument is discussed that has been developed by TSI based on a technique developed over the last two decades by the University of Tartu - Estonia. A description of the instrument, the Engine Exhaust Particle Sizer™ (EEPS™), is given as well as engine dynamometer data showing a comparison between the current standards for engine exhaust measurements, the Scanning Mobility Particle Sizing (SMPS™) system and the Condensation Particle Counter (CPC). The EEPS compares favorably with the SMPS and CPC while providing sub-second response.
