Aerosol size distributions from ferrous foundry cupola furnaces vary depending on semicontinuous process dynamics, time along the tap-to-tap cycle, dilution ratio, and the physical and chemical nature of the charge and fuel. All of these factors result in a highly time-dependent emission of particulate matter (PM) 2.5 pm or less in aerodynamic diameter (PM2.5)--even on a mass concentration basis. Control measures are frequently taken on the basis of low-reliability parameters such as emission… CONTINUE READING
