English Thermodenuders are used to remove the volatile fraction of an aerosol. All designs until now have a cooled adsorption section where the volatile material is trapped, but theoretical considerations suggest that the adsorption section should be heated. Therefore, we built a thermodenuder with a heated adsorption section. We tested its performance with respect to particle penetration and its... Show more…
