(Also spelled conimeter.) An instrument for determining the dust content of a sample of air.

One form of the instrument consists of a tapered metal tube through which a sample of air is drawn and allowed to impinge upon a glass slide covered with a viscous substance. The particles caught are counted and measured with the aid of a microscope.
See dust counter.
