Abstract

A two-color pyrometric technique was developed for the in situ simultaneous measurement of individual fuel-particle temperatures and sizes in a pressurized entrained flow reactor (PEFR). A method that requires only a single optical port was developed, and a specially designed optical probe was manufactured for the measurements at the PEFR. The fuel-particle temperature was obtained by applying two-color pyrometry. The particle size was determined from the same pyrometric signals. A discrimination method was developed to confirm that the detected particle was valid for particle sizing. Several series of measurements were made at a PEFR at different process conditions, and some typical results are shown.
