virtual impactor


Instrument used to sample particles of a given size range according to their inertia. Particles are removed by impacting them through a virtual surface into a stagnant volume, or a volume with a slowly moving airflow, so that large particles remain in this volume while smaller particles are deflected with the bulk of the original air flow;  the dichotomous impactor is a frequently used virtual impactor.
