VARIABILITY IN CASCADE IMPACTION: SOURCES, IMPACT AND ...

INTRODUCING CASCADE IMPACTION Cascade impactors separate a sample by particle inertia, which is a function of particle size and velocity. During testing, sample laden air is drawn through the stages of the impactor at a constant volumetric flow rate by a vacuum pump (Figure 1). Each stage consists of a plate .
