An investigation was undertaken to select suitable characterization criteria for test dusts; determine procedures for obtaining, handling, and characterizing the dusts; and establish potential suppliers of test dusts. The criteria considered included size distribution; shape, surface area, and pore volume; chemical composition; density; wettability and moisture content; solubility; hardness, abrasiveness, and grindability; charge properties; dielectric properties; corrosiveness; optical properties; magnetic susceptibility; plus two other properties, carrier gas composition and solids loading. Potential industrial suppliers of test dusts for simulation purposes were identified for eleven industries; pulverized coal combustion, stoker-fired coal combustion, basic oxygen furnaces, open hearth furnaces, electric arc furnaces, metallurgical coke ovens, cement plants, municipal incineration, steel foundries, Kraft pulp mill recovery furnaces, and asphalt plants.
