Measurements of aerosol agglomeration have been made in a cylindrical chamber and used to show that liquid (glycol fog) and solid (TiO(2)) aerosols agglomerate in the presence of a high intensity sound field. The TiO(2) aerosol was generated using a powder disperser, while the liquid aerosol was produced by the evaporation and condensation of Safex, a chemical mixture consisting mainly of glycol. The influence of the addition of glycol fog on the acoustic agglomeration of the TiO(2) was characterised in a series of experiments. The total particle concentrations during two experiments, with and without addition of glycol fog, have been compared and the results obtained are discussed.
