Abstract

Radioactively labeled polystyrene particles were manufactured with the spinning-disk aerosol generator. Techniques were developed to produce monodisperse aerosols in a wide range of sizes. Particles from 1 to 40 μm were successfully prepared. The method is capable of extension beyond this range. An air-driven rotor was used at high speeds whereas an electric motor was found to be more convenient at low speeds. A simple impactor was built to collect the primary particles.
