On March 3, 2015, Dr. Jason Olfert of the University of Alberta’s Department of Mechanical Engineering received a United States patent titled “Particle Classifier”(patent no. 8,966,958).
The invention classifies particles by their aerodynamic size, which produces a monodisperse aersol. Some of the many applications include pharmaceutical research, inhalation toxicology, bio-aerosol detection, automotive emissions measurements, filter testing, and energy and combustion research.
The technology has been licensed to UK-based Cambustion.
