Classification Separation and Capture of Ultra Fine Particles by Impact Separation
Thomas R. Blake, Ph.D. and Karl Jakus, Ph.D.
A system for handling, collection and classification of ultra-fine and nano-scale particles is based on impact separation technology through control of the operating environment. The fractional efficiency for particle capture and the cut-diameter are affected by the geometry of the device, flow rate, and operating pressure, together with the particle characteristics.
- Classification of particles and removal of agglomerates.
- Separation of particles from carrier gas.
- Collection of powders.
- Based on commercial embodiment with simple design
- Ease of scale-up
- Continuous operation
- Readily integrated with synthesis processes or other collection devices
