The report describes a comprehensive particle size measurement program conducted at a coal-fired electric generating plant early in 1973. It also includes information obtained from other field tests and laboratory work. The primary particle size range of interest is from 0.2 to 2.0 micrometers diameter, but techniques are also evaluated for measuring larger particles. Inertial classification is the basic sizing technique considered. Among the 11 different commercial and modified sizing devices evaluated are: Andersen Models II, III, and IV; Battelle CIS-6; Brink BMS-11; McCrone; TAG; and University of Washington Mark III. The program is part of a project to devise and evaluate various techniques for field measurements of the fractional efficiency of particulate control devices.
