Sartorius offers a wide range of filter balances for use in particulate emissions testing.. These balances are ideal for measurements in research and testing institutes in the field of environmental technology – anywhere that the emissions produced by combustion processes are closely scrutinized. Sartorius filter balances, high-precision gravimetric measurement of particulate diesel fuel emissions involves a whole 21 million steps – this is the number of scale intervals in an ultra-microbalance designed for measuring the weight of microscopically small soot particles.
When emissions in diesel motors are reduced, however, the techniques for measurement have to be improved to detect ever-smaller amounts of soot. The 40 CFR 86.1312-2007 regulation issued by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Filter stabilization and microbalance workstation environmental conditions, microbalance specifications, and particulate matter filter handling and weighing procedures,” specifies the use of an ultra-microbalance with a repeatability of 0.1 µg and a repeatability of 0.25 µg for gravimetric detection of particulate emissions.
