The report reviews (for both the lime and limestone systems) the systematic test program which developed recent TVA-demonstrated washing techniques that maintain continuous mist eliminator performance for lime/limestone closed-loop scrubbing systems at TVA's 1-MW pilot plant at the Colbert power plant. Continuous operation of the chevron-type mist eliminator, positioned horizontally in a vertical duct, in the limestone system was maintained (after extensive testing) by washing the bottom of the mist eliminator intermittently with all the available clarified liquor, immediately followed by an allocated amount of the allowable makeup water. The top of the mist eliminator was washed intermittently with the remaining allocation of allowable makeup water. Continuous mist eliminator performance in the lime system was maintained by washing the bottom of the mist eliminator intermittently with an allocated amount of allowable makeup water. The remainder of the allocated makeup water was used to wash the top of the mist eliminator intermittently.
