Commissioning of the new dust and bio-aerosol test rig

 

A new test rig for dust and bio-aerosols has been commissioned at the Thünen Institute of Agricultural Technology. The test rig consists of a test tubing system for dust and a test tubing system for bio-aerosols. A novel bio-aerosol chamber is also housed in the test rig. In this chamber airborne micro-organisms can be investigated under real outdoor conditions for the first time ever. With this chamber we want to answer the question, how far bacteria from animal housings really can fly through the air.
