Objective of the project is to develop a Dusty Plasma Separator (DPS) technology which enables to separate fly ash obtained in coal power plants into different particle size fractions. Ultrafine fraction < 2,5 ?m may replace silica fume used in high performance concrete. The use of such high-performance concrete enables to extend structure lifetime from 50 to 500 years.
European Institute of Innovation and Technology Programme (EIT)
The tasks of the Ultrasound Research Institute of Kaunas University of Technology the following:
1.Feasibility study of ultrasonic measurement of ash dust concentration in plasma.
2.Investigation of declogging principles of the ultrasonic measurement chamber in the Dusty Plasma Separator.
