Contents Notes
The objective of this program was to evaluate and characterize the performance of full-scale fabric filter unites installed on 100 MW or larger coal-fired power plants. This document reports results of total mass and fractional size particulate emission tests at Southwestern Public Service's Harrington Station Unit 3 from July 8 to July 11, 1981. Three outlet and one inlet mass and fractional size emission tests were performed. Due to the absence of inlet ports, inlet testing was done by bypassing the baghouse and testing at the outlet ports of the fabric filter. The fabric filter is a shake/deflate unit with 32 compartments. Each compartment has 204 bags, 30 ft 6 in. long and 11.5 in. in diameter. Design air/cloth ratio is 2.8. Average outlet concentration was 0.007 lb/10p6s Btu. Inlet loading was 2.0 /lb/10p6s Btu, giving a 99.65% collection efficiency. Particle sizing tests indicated that the mass geometric mean diameter for the three outlet tests ranged from 7.2 to 13 [mu]m with an inlet mass diameter of 60 [mu]m.
