Electrostatic Removal Of Airborne Particulates Employing Fiber Beds

View page
US Patent:
4029482, Jun 14, 1977
Filed:
Jun 30, 1975
Appl. No.:
5/591278
Inventors:
Arlin Keith Postma - Benton City WA
W. Kevin Winegardner - Richland WA
Assignee:
Battelle Memorial Institute - Richland WA
International Classification:
B03C 300
US Classification:
55 2
Abstract:
A method and apparatus for collecting aerosol particles. The particles are subjected to an electrostatic charge prior to collection in an electrically resistive fiber bed. The method is applicable to particles in a broad size range, including the difficult-to-remove particles having diameters between 0. 01 and 2 microns.

Method For Removing Particulate Matter From A Gas Stream

View page
US Patent:
4432777, Feb 21, 1984
Filed:
Sep 9, 1982
Appl. No.:
6/416411
Inventors:
Arlin K. Postma - Benton City WA
Assignee:
The United States of America as represented by the United States
Department of Energy - Washington DC
International Classification:
B01D 4702
B01D 4714
US Classification:
55 86
Abstract:
Particulate matter is removed from a stream of pressurized gas by directing the stream of gas upwardly through a bed of porous material, the porous bed being held in an open ended container and at least partially submerged in liquid. The passage of the gas through the porous bed sets up a circulation in the liquid which cleans the particulate matter from the bed.

Thermophoretic Separation Of Aerosol Particles From A Sampled Gas Stream

View page
US Patent:
4572007, Feb 25, 1986
Filed:
Sep 7, 1984
Appl. No.:
6/648197
Inventors:
Arlin K. Postma - Halfway OR
Assignee:
The United States of America as represented by the United States
Department of Energy - Washington DC
International Classification:
G01N 122
US Classification:
7386312
Abstract:
A method for separating gaseous samples from a contained atmosphere that includes aerosol particles uses the step of repelling particles from a gas permeable surface or membrane by heating the surface to a temperature greater than that of the surrounding atmosphere. The resulting thermophoretic forces maintain the gas permeable surface clear of aerosol particles. The disclosed apparatus utilizes a downwardly facing heated plate of gas permeable material to combine thermophoretic repulsion and gravity forces to prevent particles of any size from contacting the separating plate surfaces.
