The manual gives a general description of a computerized model for estimating design and cost of lime or limestone scrubber systems for flue gas desulfurization (FGD). It supplements PB80-123037 by extending the number of scrubber options which can be evaluated. It includes spray tower and venturi/spray-tower absorbers, forced oxidation systems, systems with absorber loop additives (MgO or adipic acid), revised design and economic premises, and other changes reflecting process improvements and variations. It describes all inputs and outputs, along with detailed procedures for using the model and all its options. The model is based on prototype scrubber data from the EPA/Shawnee test facility and should be useful to utility companies, as well as to architectural and engineering contractors who are involved in selecting and designing FGD facilities. As key features, the model provides estimates of capital investment and operating revenue requirements. It also provides a material balance, equipment list, and a breakdown of costs by processing areas. The primary uses of the model are to project comparative economics of lime and limestone FGD processes and to evaluate system alternatives prior to the development of a detailed design.
