Radar Sensor of Dust


The Dust Sensor (sensor) is intended for inspection of a volumetric distributed dust and based on double frequency radar. At present large amount of various sensors of dust (aerosols) provide measurements in wide range of particles dimensions with satisfactory accuracy. But practically all of them are based on contact methods which require getting of a sample.

But often it is necessary to provide inspection of remote sources of dust, for example in chimneys or simply in air. Therefore we developed the dust sensor which based on double frequency radar and algorithm of signal processing that permit to find mass-loading, effective particles diameter and number of particles in unit volume.

The surface appearance of the sensor prototype is shown on the figure. The prototype is based on two coherent solid state radars in 3 mm and 8 mm wavelengths, antennas of which are focused at the same volume.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

Innovation aspect is based on development of the original signal processing algorithm that permits to measure parameters of aerosols.

Main advantage of the sensor is the ability to provide remote inspection of dust parameters in large volumes in contrast to existing devices that use the contact methods of measurements.

Areas of Application

The sensor can be used everywhere to control technological processes that produce atmospheric pollutions, including thermoelectric power stations, cement works, enterprises of mineral resources industry etc.
