Catalytic strippers can be used to determine the solid and semi-volatile particle concentrations in combustion aerosol sources. Some examples are biomass burning in the ambient environment or in laboratory evaluations of cooking stoves. Solid and semi-volatile particles are created by open flames such as candles. Most commercial soot generators do not produce completely “dry” soot so our catalytic strippers can be used to remove the majority of the organic carbon concentration.
