Measurement Strategies Influencing the Results of Total Particle Emission from Biomass Combustion

C. Schön, H. Hartmann & P. Turowski
Particle emissions from small scale wood combustion are usually measured in the hot flue gas. In order to create conditions which are closer to the situation at the chimney top, the flue gas is sometimes diluted. This, however, causes a considerable increase in measured particle emission due to partial condensation of organic gaseous compounds (OGC). In this investigation 357 parallel PM measurements in the undiluted and diluted flue gas were performed, reflecting flue gases from...
