Development of the ceramic sensor for measuring the soot adsorption in a conventional incinerator(Natural Science and Engineering)



Zeolite type adsorbent was used to remove the harmful gas discharged from an incinerator. A ceramic sensor consisting an alumina ceramic tube has been developed in order to measure the physical ability of the adsorbent. The ceramic tube does not pass an electricity at room temperature. However, when the soot and smoke might be adsorbed to the ceramic tube in the basic experiment, the tube is found to become an electrical transmitter. In this paper, by the electrical conductivity of the ceramic sensor, the adsorbed amount of the soot has been measured from its observed resistance value. As the result which experimented by installing it in the incinerator, the electrical conductive behavior of the ceramic sensor is useful for measuring the adsorbed amount.
