The report is a critical review and evaluation of the mechanics of aerosols at high temperatures and pressures. It discusses equations and models used to predict particle behavior at normal conditions, with regard to their applicability at high temperatures and pressures. It discusses available experimental data, concluding that the data are inadequate to confirm the projections of aerosol mechanics at high temperatures and pressures. It presents a few examples of the effects of high temperature and pressure on the collection efficiency and power requirement of typical collection devices. It concludes, generally, that particle collection at high temperatures and pressures will be much more difficult and expensive than collection of similar particles at low temperatures and pressures.
