All-in-one: Direct Aerosol & Gas-Phase Monitoring

CHARON PARTICLE INLET-SYSTEM

The new CHemical Analysis of aeRosol ON-line (CHARON) particle inlet coupled to IONICON PTR-TOFMS series instruments quantitatively detects organic sub-μm particulate matter as well as particulate ammonium and nitrate at single digit ng/m³ mass concentration levels in real-time.

This revolutionary new inlet enables PTR-TOF to measure aerosols directly with the most versatile, reliable and proven technology for VOCs analysis available in the market: PTR-MS. One single instrument covers VOCs and allows additionally the molecular-level characterization of sub-μm particulate organic matter in real-time.

CHARON PTR-TOFMS ALL-IN-ONE FOR GAS-PHASE & AEROSOLS

CHARON PTR-TOFMS is a designated on-line and real-time particle analyzer.

In addition, the CHARON particle inlet significantly extends the range of compounds that can be detected using PTR-MS from gas-phase volatile and intermediate volatile organics (VOC and IVOC) to particle-phase intermediate, semi and low volatile organic compounds (IVOC, SVOC and LVOC). Therefore, the PTR-MS technology allows for the detection of almost the full range of atmospheric organic carbon with a single IONICON PTR-TOF instrument.
