Abstract:

The deposition of suspensions in laminar flow was considered with special emphasis on the types of flow that result with the geometrical configurations in a typical laminar proportional amplifier. An analytical investigation of the mechanics of deposition has been made and a mathematical model developed for the deposition process. The analysis indicates that the most important effects are due to surface adhesive forces and electrostatic charges on the particles. Experiments with a simple contamination modeling system indicate that significant electrostatic charges can accumulate on the particles.
