The report gives results of the computation of fine particle collection efficiency as a function of particle size, based on data from an electrostatic scrubber. The scrubber was operated at 21.0 and 22.7 actual cu m/min at 16C with a pressure drop of approximately 40 cm W.C. Titanium dioxide was generated as the test aerosol having an approximate mass mean diameter (aerodynamic) of 1.0 micrometer with a geometric standard of 2.2. The scrubber was tested with the particle ionizer on and off: collection efficiency generally improved with the ionizer on. Additional testing was performed to determine if static charges were affecting the sampling measurements. Particle size and collection efficiency changed when charge neutralizing devices were used. The inlet test aerosol charge apparently affects the measured penetration.
