This paper investigates interaction between two particles in acoustic field. It is shown that additional oscillating movements of particles occur as a result of plain acoustic wave action. This sufficiently increases the probability of collisions between particles. Micro-displacements in the collision zone help to remove various pollutants, oxidation products and adsorbed gas molecules from surfaces of particles. Strong adhesive bonds are formed in the contact area between the particles.
