Abrasive Dust Generator

For the generation of aerosols from grinding, cutting or other abrasive processes

The VITROCELL® Abrasive Dust Generator generates dust particles which occur in grinding, cutting or other abrasive processes. Aerosols containing particles from the following materials can be produced to evaluate their impact on human health:
  • Synthetic materials
  • Metals
  • Ceramics
  • Glass-fiber reinforced plastics
  • Carbon-fiber reinforced plastics
Cutting speed, feed rate and operation mode can be ­adjusted to generate an aerosol with different concentrations and aerosol properties. The aerosol is directly removed after the cutting process and guided to the exposure system where 1 m3/h of aerosol will be available for further ­investigation. Depending on feed rate and aerosol concentration the generator is capable of continuous delivery up to 6 h.


  • Aerosol generation made of cutting process
  • Automated process
  • Touch screen display
  • Isokinetic sampling
  • Control of cutting speed and feed rate
  • Treatment of different materials possible
