Fundamentals of the particle separation from flue gases and working knowledge for choice and dimensioning type of the separator.
Following requirements are demanded: Particle properties and individual separation principles and separation velocities. Basic types of particle separators and its properties and field of use. Total and grade efficiency of separation.
- Syllabus of lectures:
Particle size and particle size distribution. Particle properties. Particulate matter removal. General equation of particle motion. Gravitational, inertial, centrifugal and electrical principle of separation. Diffusion of particles. Total and grade efficiency of separation. Pressure drop. Classification of particle separators, characteristic features.
- Syllabus of tutorials:
Gaussian particle distribution. Log-normal particle distribution. Particle distribution Rosin - Rammler. Specific surface of particles. Aerodynamic drag force. Settling velocity for small and high Re. Particle stop distance. Mobility of the particle. Velocity of separation in centrifugal principle. Particle mean free path. Charge of particles and velocity of separation in electrical precipitators.
- Study Objective:
