Application of bag sampling technique for particle size distribution measurements
Mazaheri, Mandana, Johnson, Graham R., & Morawska, Lidia (2009) Application of bag sampling technique for particle size distribution measurements. Journal of Environmental Monitoring, 11, pp. 2087-2090.
Bag sampling techniques can be used to temporarily store an aerosol and therefore provide sufficient time to utilize sensitive but slow instrumental techniques for recording detailed particle size distributions. Laboratory based assessment of the method were conducted to examine size dependant deposition loss coefficients for aerosols held in VelostatTM bags conforming to a horizontal cylindrical geometry. Deposition losses of NaCl particles in the range of 10 nm to 160 nm were analysed in relation to the bag size, storage time, and sampling flow rate. Results of this study suggest that the bag sampling method is most useful for moderately short sampling periods of about 5 minutes.
