VITROCELL® Automated Exposure Station Extended Version

The picture shows the setup for C3 Carbon Concrete Composite project. It contains the VITROCELL® Abrasive Dust Generator, the VITROCELL® external dilution system and the extended VITROCELL® Automated Exposure Station.

The Abrasive Dust Generator provides an aerosol to the dilution system derived from the cutting process of e.g. carbon concrete. It is suitable to generate an aerosol from cutting and grinding processes of a range of different materials and workpieces.

Individual dilution ratios can be adjusted at the external dilution system. In the following step the aerosol is guided the Automated Exposure Station where cells are exposed at the air/liquid interface. Additional analytical modules for dose determination via Quartz Crystal Microbalances, TEM analysis as well well as online mass spectrometry of the gas phase can be integrated.


  • Direct aerosol sampling
  • Size selective inlet
  • Automated process
  • Temperature controlled system
  • Integrated humidification of aerosol
  • Aerosol flow control by mass flow controllers
  • Touch-screen display
  • Analytical modules for TEM and mass spectrometry
  • Optional external or integrated dilution system
  • Central data management system
  • Online dose measurement
  • Electrostatic deposition enhancement
  • Integrated vacuum pump
