Cascade Impactor

Application ID: 103531

This example simulates particles in a range of sizes that move through different levels of a cascade impactor. A cascade impactor is an inertial particle separation device consisting of multiple levels separated by collecting plates and nozzles. Particle-laden air enters from the top inlet and passes through progressively finer nozzles. A 2D histogram is used to record the range of particle sizes that hit each stage of the cascade impactor.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
