The report gives results of an evaluation of an American Air Filter Kinpactor 10 x 56 venturi scrubber, operating on emissions from a large borax fusing furnace. Average total efficiency was 97.5% during the test period. The venturi was operated at a pressure drop of 110 cm W. C., using about 33 liters/s of scrubbing liquor for a gas flow rate of about 20 A cu m/s (43,000 CFM) at 80 C. The dust had a mass median aerodynamic diameter of about 0.8 micrometers A. The collection efficiencies of particles with aerodynamic diameters between 0.3 and 3 micrometers A were determined from size distribution data taken with cascade impactors. The efficiency data showed the venturi to be more efficient than predicted for particle sizes below 1 micrometer A. Particle mass augmentation by condensed water is a probable reason for the high efficiency for small particle collection. Diffusion battery data indicate the occurrence of some particle growth.
