Charme® — Portable Aerosol Electrometer

Charme® — Portable aerosol electrometer (chargemeter) for the measurement of aerosol concentrations in the range of 2 nm up to 100 µm

DescriptionCharme

The Charme® electrometer works by capturing all the particulate sampled and measuring the total charge as current produced as the charge drains to earth.

By using replaceable gravimetric filters a correlation of the measured electric charge (particle charge) to the mass concentration can be determined for high aerosol concentrations.

The Charme® has been compared with established electrometers held at the Federal Office of Metrology METAS (Switzerland) and achieved very good measurement results.

The Charme® mobile aerosol electrometer operates both on mains power and its internal battery, with a touch screen display. It displays particle concentration and electrometric flow graphically.

Sampling flowrate is 1 - 8 l/min with a measuring range of 1fA - 22500fA for particles from 2nm — 100µm (the upper diameter limit is determined mainly by aerosol transport losses through the sampling line).

Applications

  • Environmental measurements
