(54)PARTICLE NUMBER COUNTING DEVICE AND PARTICLE NUMBER COUNTING METHOD


(57) The present invention reduces the effects from variations in the outside air pressure on particle number counting, and is provided with an exhaust gas processing unit that performs predetermined processing on exhaust gas, a particle number counting unit that counts a number of particles contained in exhaust gas that has passed through the exhaust gas processing unit, a fluid resistance element that is provided downstream from the particle number counting unit, a suction pump that is provided downstream from the fluid resistance element, a gas supply path that is connected to a flow path between the fluid resistance element and the suction pump, and supplies gas to a downstream side of the fluid resistance element, and a flow rate adjustment unit that is provided on the gas supply path, and adjusts a flow rate of the gas that is supplied to the downstream side of the fluid resistance element.
