The report gives results of an evaluation of the potential of sonic agglomeration as a means of improving capabilities for controlling fine particle emissions. Available theoretical and experimental information indicates that sonic agglomerators can increase the mean particle size of aerosols; however, the energy requirements are quite high when the gas stream contains predominantly fine particulates. Even under ideal conditions, energy consumption would range from 1 to 15 hp/1000 cfm. These ideal energy levels are not very competitive with other devices capable of removing fine particulates, especially when a high efficiency control system is required as a collector in order to minimize energy consumption in the sonic agglomerator.
