Nanoparticle generation at the touch of a button

The VSP-G1 is based on spark ablation technology, a physics based process, generating pure particles in a precise and controlled setting, without the use of chemicals. The spark ablation process used inside the VSP-G1 is a purely physical process that only requires electricity, a carrier gas and electrode material to produce clean nanoparticles. No additional chemicals are required for the production or to stabilize the particles in the aerosol. The produced nanoparticles can be directly incorporated into the next process step or applied in a product. Particles are collected by either impaction, electrostatic precipitation or filtering. These collection methods ensure that the unique physical properties of the nanoparticles are unadulterated by surfactants or other carriers. The carrier gas can simply be recirculated, minimizing the environmental impact of the process.
