Abstract

This paper presents the latest development in the

design and implementation of an innovative optical

instrumentation system that can measure the size distribution

of particles in a pneumatic suspension. A low-cost CCD

camera is used to capture the images of particulate flow

field, which is illuminated by a low-cost laser sheet

generator. The particle size distribution is then determined

by processing the particle images through the use of novel

processing algorithms. Experimental results obtained on a

small scale particle flow test rig have demonstrated that the

system is capable of measuring the size distribution of

pneumatically conveyed particles with repeatability better

than 1% for a volumetric concentration up to 2%. A relative

comparison is made between the on-line imaging technique

and the widely
