The report gives results of a survey of the magnesium-oxide-based flue gas desulfurization system on boiler 1 at Philadelphia Electric Co.'s Eddystone Station. The system, designed and installed by United Engineers and Constructors, Inc., consists of three first stage scrubber modules in parallel for particulate control (two are Environeering ventri-rod units; the third is a Peabody-Lurgi venturi unit) and a second stage Environeering absorber module with two ventri-rod beds for SO2 removal. The three first stage scrubbers, combined, are sized to handle all the exhaust gas from unit 1 which has a net electric generating capacity of 314 MW. The second stage absorber is sized to handle one-third of the gas flow, equivalent to about 105 MW (net). As of April 1, 1975, the second stage module had not yet been operated; therefore, this report necessarily emphasizes design, rather than operating, parameters and experience. The system is designed to remove 90 percent of the SO2 from boiler stack gas.
