Abstract
Optical methods for particle size distribution measurements in practical high temperature environments are approaching feasibility and offer significant advantages over conventional sampling methods. The present paper begins by summarizing user requirements for research and on-line particle measurements in fossil fuel systems. The principles of single particle counter (SPC) design are outlined followed by a discussion of practical instrument design constraints. Three instrument design concepts currently being developed at Sandia are then discussed. An overview of these current methods and other instrument designs is presented with particular emphasis on capabilities to meet user ojectives. Validation and long term testing of these new concepts is considered to be the final important step in achieving user acceptance of in situ optical counters.
