Abstract : The report details further efforts on filtration experimentation in the high pressure environment. Additional theory relevant to high pressure filtration has been uncovered in the open literature and is presented and discussed. Experimental apparatus for the study of liquid aerosol generation in the high pressure environment has been constructed and operated. The results indicate mild increase in particle size with increasing pressure. There is no intention to purposely form a liquid aerosol in the high pressure environment, but there is always a possibility that the accidential juxtaposition of liquids and mechanical forces will produce liquid aerosols. It is thus necessary to have some base line techniques available for potential toxicological investigations. (Author)
