The report gives results of a review of the design details of a pilot precipitator and particle concentration profile studies. It also reviews discussions of resistivity measurement and correlations between resistivity and precipitator operation. Objectives of the study covered by the report were: to extend the precipitator model to include factors not included in the first model influencing its accuracy; to design and build a pilot precipitator for further studies of the factors influencing precipitation processes; to review limitations to precipitator performance due to back corona and sparking; to investigate the particle concentration profile in the interelectrode space; to obtain data from both field and pilot plant tests to attempt to verify the computer model; and to analyze potential for optimizing precipitator performance by design or operating modifications.
