Positive size-effect on the sensitivity of a planar counter-current micro flame ionization detector

To reduce fuel gas consumption, a planar counter-current micro flame ionization detector (μFID) has been developed for mobile applications. In this work, the effect of flame chamber size on the μFID sensitivity is investigated. An FEM model is presented, which predicts sensitivity. The model shows that smaller chambers result in more confined flammable… CONTINUE READING
