The report gives: an introduction to fine particle control scrubber programs supported by EPA's Industrial Environmental Research Laboratory at Research Triangle Park in North Carolina (IERL-RTP); and topical and chronological overviews of the various projects which IERL-RTP has sponsored relating to scrubber technology. Possible exceptions (mobile-bed scrubbers and series scrubbing with low-energy devices) became objects of further study. Two major mechanisms for increasing scrubber efficiency have been studied by IERL-RTP contractors: flux-force/condensation scrubbing (use of diffusiophoresis and condensation growth of particles), and electrostatic augmentation (scrubbing with charged droplets); both have shown efficiencies which are higher than those achieved by conventional means at equal power consumption levels. Problems with entrained water droplets have caused IERL-RTP to fund theoretical and experimental research in entrainment separator technology, some of the results of which are presented. The hypothesis that particle wettability is important in determining scrubbing efficiency is to be tested by an IERL-RTP sponsored research program.
