Droplet Measurement Technologies Back-scatter Cloud Probe with Polarisation Detection

A compact probe to measure cloud droplet size distributions to derive the total number concentrations, liquid water, median volume diameter, and effective diameter

How it works

Measure cloud droplet size distributions, which are then used to derive the total number concentrations, liquid water content, median volume diameter, and effective diameter.

The BCPD’s non-intrusive optical housing allows use in a range of ground-based or airborne applications with no contamination from ice crystal shattering and no airflow distortion.

Discriminate between ice and water particles with the BCPD’s polarisation feature. For example, use the BCPD to detect when an aircraft encounters abnormally high concentrations of ice crystals.

The BCP is a compact probe that measures 5 µm to 75 µm particles with no contamination from ice crystal shattering and no airflow distortion. Minimise airflow disturbance and enable undisturbed particle measurement with the BCP’s aerodynamic design. Both the BCPD and the BCP can monitor multiple output variables like total particles, average transit time, over-range particles, and various probe health indicators. Their minimal size allows them to be mounted easily on aircraft, even when space is at a premium.
