The report gives results of a review and evaluation of available venturi scrubber design equations. Calvert's differential equation for particle collection and Boll's differential equation for pressure drop were selected for numerical solution, and the results are presented graphically. Particle collection and pressure drop of venturi scrubbers can be approximated by the collection occurring in the venturi throat and by the drop acceleration loss, respectively. Simplified equations were derived by applying Calvert's and Boll's equations to the venturi throat section. The new design equations are much simpler to use, and they compare favorably with available performance data.
