Particle Sensor KS-42A

A highly reliable particle sensor that can measure 0.1µm particles. Measurements can be made using only small amounts of samples due to high counting efficiency.

Minimum particle size of 0.1µm, sample flow rate of 10 mL/min
Particle size range (5 channels, factory default setting)
≥ 0.1µm,≥ 0.15µm,≥ 0.2µm,≥ 0.3µm,≥ 0.5µm
Leakage detector built-in. Outputs alarm when internal leak detected
Channel size change possible within range of sensor(using KE-40B1)
