Particle Counters

Particle counters are analytical instruments used to detect and count either ionizing or non-ionizing particles. Three main classes of particle counters include aerosol, liquid, and solid particle counters, all of which describe the environment in which the particles to be counted are present. Regardless of the type of instrument used, all particle counters illuminate particles of a sample by an applied beam of light. The photodetector within the instrument converts the scattered light given off by the sample into electrical signals, which can be measured in order to determine the size and quantity of particles present in the sample.
