Description of key information

The granulometry was measured for Fly Ash and Bottom Ash separately because it is collected in different ways due to character of particles.
The sieving method was used for the particle size distribution of the test substance, Fluidized Bed Combustion (FBC) Bottom Ash.
The laser diffraction method was used for the determination of the particle size distribution of the test substance, Fluidized Bed Combustion (FBC) Fly Ash.

Additional information

Size of individual particles of (FBC) Ashes is quite different – structure of (FBC) Fly Ash is rather fine whereas structure of (FBC) Bottom Ash is coarse. In (FBC) Fly Ash more than 90% particles are smaller than 0.074 mm and in (FBC) Bottom Ash more than 94% particles are smaller than 1.00 mm and only 2,4% of its particles are smaller than 0.08 mm.
