Understanding Particle Loss in Transport Tubing and How to Perform Testing

This class will look at the mechanics of sampling errors, isokinetic and isoaxial samples, the particle loss in sample tubing as a function of variable factors, including tubing length, tubing diameter, bend radii and connectors such as fittings and valves. A practical demonstration of performing particle loss in transport tubing will be performed [class size permitting – otherwise a review of data will be done], a review of site specific data from field examples of installed systems and what to do with the particle count data once the losses are known.
