Filtration of Charged Aerosols

 

Theme: Aerosol Technology  

Start date: Cohort 1: 2019

Supervisors: Dr Adam Boies (Cambridge) and Dr Catherine Noakes (Leeds)

Conveying and generation of powders can lead to very high levels of charge on particles, affecting their transport agglomeration and ultimate removal from the environment. Through modelling and experiments this project seeks to optimize collection of particles in filtration processes accounting for and manipulating electrostatic charge.
