The report gives detailed results of fractional and overall mass efficiency tests of a Combustion Equipment Associates(CEA) variable-throat venturi scrubber. The tests were performed on a full-scale scrubber used for controlling particles and SOx emissions from a pulverized-coal-fired utility boiler. Total flue gas particulate mass concentrations were determined at the scrubber inlet and outlet by conventional techniques. Inlet and outlet particulate concentrations as functions of size were determined on a mass basis using cascade impactors for sizes from about 0.3 to 5 micrometers, and on a number basis for sizes smaller than about 1 micrometer using optical and electrical mobility techniques. The report describes the scrubber, measurement methods, inlet and outlet size distribution data, and fractional efficiencies.
