Paper Abstract

The design of an instrument which measures particulate size and loading of the off gas from a fluidized-bed combustor is discussed. This noninvasive technique is based on the use of Fraunhofer diffraction. Experimental results are presented for three size fractions of synthetic diamond dust in water which approximates the refractive index of coal dust in air.
