This paper reports work undertaken to explore the influence of air relative humidity, temperature and particle size on the electric charging characteristics of particulate aluminium hydroxide during transport in a pneumatic pipeline. Limited data with regard to the influence of flow suspension density and velocity is also reported. Values of air relative humidity from 35% to 50% and temperatures of 19degreesC and 30degreesC are investigated, along with mean particle sizes ranging from 49 to 98 mum. Flow velocities between 16 and 36 m/s and suspension density values of 50 and 10 mg/m(3) are also investigated. The presented data suggest that a reduction in temperature and an increase in relative humidity generally lead to a reduction in charge level. A peak in charge level is experienced for a particle size in the region of 80 mum.
