Main Article Content
Loss of the number of nanoparticles within pipe may lead to significant change of particle number distribution, total mass concentration and particles mean size. The experiments of multiple dispersion aerosol particles ranging from 5.6 nm to 560 nm in straight pipe are carried out using a fast mobility particle sizer. The particle size number distribution, total number concentrations, geometric mean size and volume are acquired under different pipe lengths and Reynolds numbers. The results show lengthening the pipe and strengthening the turbulence can promote the particle deposition process. The penetration efficiency of smaller particle is lower than the larger one, so the particle mean size increases in the process of deposition.
