This paper presents the results of an investigation of the influence of the concentration of large particles on the acoustic agglomeration rate of a glycol fog aerosol. The measurements were performed with a 21 kHz sound source located in an experimental chamber which was modified to reduce the amplitude of acoustic standing waves. Particle size distributions were monitored continuously by an APS. The aerosol was produced by the evaporation and condensation of a glycol based liquid. In these experiments the sound source was operated continuously while a constant amount of fresh aerosol was injected in three second bursts at constant time intervals. The results of a typical experiment are shown and discussed.
