The paper describes an EPA research program concerning collection of ash/sorbent mixtures. The effects of furnace sorbent injection on the electrical resistivity and the size distribution of particles suspended in flue gas have been measured, using various sorbents and injection modes with a 1 million Btu/hr pilot-scale combustion system. Resistivity was measured both in situ and in the laboratory. It discusses the implication of the results on electrostatic precipitator performance, together with potential corrective measures for improving the collection efficiency of ash/sorbent mixtures.
