Abstract

An experimental technique has been developed for exposing particles to gas streams with temperatures in the approximate range 4000-10000 K. The technique is intended for studies of the physical or chemical interactions between particles and gases at high temperatures. Particles are supported by fluid dynamic forces so that mechanical contact is avoided and particles can be electrically nonconducting or conducting. Particle sizes are of the order of hundreds of micrometres. The transparent quartz-containing tube allows particles and gas to be monitored by optical instruments.
