Paper Abstract

The study of particulate formation and dynamics of motion in industrial multicomponent systems requires the knowledge of the distribution function of the size of those particulates. Two optical in situ techniques have been studied for on-line characterization of the size distribution in two-phase flows. The pointer beam technique (PB) offers good potential for measurement of particles in the size range of 0.1 < d < 10 pm. Polarization intensity ratio (PIR) is subject to severe oscillations which limit the size regions where it is useful.
