Measuring the size distribution of solid contaminants born by the technical cooling water has an important role. Therefore, in this paper a partial differential equation which describes the probability size distribution of solid contaminants born by technical cooling water is presented and solved. It is demonstrated that the differential equation possesses an analytical solution in the form of the Gibbs-Boltzmann distribution function. The fitting function of probability density function represents a solution of the partial differential equation.
Before evaluation, the sampled water was prepared with filtration equipment. Extracing particles are digitized under scanning microscope. Finally, the particle sizes of contaminants are measured by digital image analysis technique, incorporated in a special program.
