Dekati® eDiluter™ Pro 1200C

3.6.2020

The Dekati® eDiluter™ Pro 1200C is a modified version of the eDiluter™ Pro dilution system specifically designed for particle measurements from extreme temperatures such as measurements directly from a combustion zone or flame. The eDiluter™ Pro 1200C includes the standard eDiluter™ Pro unit combined with the Dekati® High Temperature Sampling probe that enables particle sampling from up to 1200 °C. The system has all the benefits of the standard eDiluter™ Pro added with the ability to take aerosol sample from extremely high temperatures.

The Dekati® High Temperature Sampling Probe is a heated dilution probe connected in front of the eDiluter™ Pro to take the sample from the high temperature source. The active cooling system built into the probe allows measurements from up to 1200 °C and direct aerosol sampling from a combustion zone or a flame. The High Temperature Probe includes a dilution stage where the sample is rapidly cooled to about 400 °C and a
heated section to maintain stable sample conditions. The Dekati® eDiluter Pro™ is a two-stage dilution system where the sample is further diluted. Its compact structure includes two ejector diluters with additional sheath air flow for the second stage diluter. The dilution factor can be adjusted by changing the pressure of the dilution air and the system additionally includes an innovative method for compensating the effects of sample (inlet) pressure fluctuations on the dilution factor. The dilution factor of the complete setup with the High Temperature Sampling Probe ranges from 1:25 to 1:225.

Applications

The Dekati® eDiluter™ Pro 1200C system is designed by VTT (Technical Research Centre of Finland) specifically for corrosion studies in mix-fuel firing energy production plants. In these studies, the Dekati® eDiluter™ Pro 1200C is used together with the ELPI®+ to measure particle size distribution directly from the combustion zone. The purpose of this is to identify markers in the particle size distribution to optimize the combustion process for minimal production of corrosive components. The Dekati® eDiluter™ Pro 1200C system can also be used in other particle measurement applications where the sample is in extremely high temperature.
