The report gives results of the third year of operation (ended October 1, 1980) of a fabric filter installed by Southwestern Public Service Co. on its Harrington Station Unit 2 coal-fired boiler in Amarillo, TX. Results of the emissions testing program demonstrated that the 1971 EPA standard of 1.2 lb SO2/million Btu can be met by burning coal with a sulfur content lower than 0.5 percent. Particulate emissions were less than the 0.03 lb/million Btu standard in all four of the particulate emissions tests. Fabric studies to date show that several fabrics have a potential 3-year baglife. The operation and maintenance cost reported for the third year of study is $434,800, or $1.21/yr/kW. Data analysis continued through the third year. Information on boiler O2 levels, air-to-cloth ratio, temperature, system pressure drop, and boiler load is being logged continuously.
