Microparticle agglomerates were formed using water, magnetic forces and direct material deposition. These methods gave different agglomerate structures and had an effect on the detachment fraction of the agglomerates. The effect of temperature, relative humidity and size of the agglomerate on the detachment was

observed experimentally. Different materials of microparticles were used as well as different microparticle sizes. The experimental data obtained was characterized as detachment fraction versus free stream velocity. There was no large difference on the detachment fraction of agglomerates compared with the detachment fraction of single particles.
