Default Link between DPM integration steps and particle time?

Benzouz is on a distinguished road

I am running a steady flow simulation of air going through a pipe with particles being injecting at the inlet. I was wondering if there was a link between the maximum integration time steps that I set in the DPM model and the maximum time (in seconds) of the particles?

My goal would be to only consider particles that have either deposited on the wall or escaped though the outlet within 1 second of particle time. I could do that using unsteady particle tracking, but I was hoping there would be a way using steady tracking as well.

Thanks for your help, and let me know if something was not clear in my question.
