A carbonaceous aerosol generator designed for inhalation experiments with animals is described. The aerosol produced from a modified diffusion flame has a concentration of 3-10 mg/cu. m. at a flow rate of 30 L/min. The addition of a small amount of O2 to the acetylene fuel greatly increased the efficiency of fuel to particulate conversion, the maximum value was 2.5%. The aerosol size characteristics were: Dgn = 0.14 micro m., based on the electrical aerosol analyzer; approximately 0.08 micro m., based on a low pressure inertial impactor; mediam elementary particle approximately 0.023 micro m. and mediam agglomerate particle approximately 0.54 micro m., based on transmission electron microscopy. The size characteristics of the generated aerosol are compared with diesel exhaust based on available published data.
