Grain Dust Probes—Calibration and Measurement


In situ light attenuation and backscattering probes were designed, fabricated, and calibrated for monitoring the dust levels in grain elevators. The calibration was performed both in a dust cloud chamber using mixed grain dust and in an elevator facility with various types of grain. The true dust concentration was determined with an isokinetic sampling probe.
