THE EROSION PRODUCT CATCHER TESTING IN THE FLOW OF COMBUSTION PRODUCTS WITH THE USE OF THE THERMOPHORESIS EFFECT
AbstractThe unextensively examined phenomenon of thermophoresis plays an important role in a number of technological processes, especially in energetics and chemistry industry. Control and analysis of the erosion products is very significant for the determination of everyday pollution of natural environment with the hard fractions that are emitted into the environment and may have a harmful effect on a human organism, especially on the respiratory organs. This paper presents the results of experimental investigation of the erosion process of samples produced from different ceramic materials. The samples were tested in a special stand constructed by the authors. The mass, shape and size of the erosion products of separate samples were investigated. Particle mass distributions from calculation and experiment were compared. The paper considers the sharp and faceted products of erosion.
