The report gives results of fractional and overall mass efficiency tests of a full-scale Rexnord gravel bed filter system used to control particulate emissions from a Portland cement plant clinker cooler. Total flue gas particulate mass concentrations and emission rates were determined at the inlet and outlet of the gravel bed system by conventional (Method 5) techniques. Inlet and outlet emission rates as function of size were determined on a mass basis using cascade impactors for sizes from about 0.5 to 5 micrometers, and on a number basis for sizes smaller than about 1 micrometer using optical and diffusional methods. The report briefly describes the Portland cement process, the Rexnord gravel bed filter system, the measurement methods, inlet and outlet particle size distribution data, and fractional efficiencies.
