Earlier investigations on liquid aerosols have demonstrated that acoustic agglomeration is an effective means by which the separation efficiency of a conventional particle separator can be improved. Although supplementary experiments made on fractal aggregates of TiO(2) have shown that agglomeration of solid particles occurs, it is necessary to make tests on a solid aerosol, whose properties are as near as possible to the airborne material found in industrial off gases. This paper presents the main results of preliminary tests made in this laboratory on the acoustic agglomeration of flyash, which had been collected at a coal fired power station.
