The report gives results of pilot plant experiments of particulate collection by a venturi scrubber downstream from an electrostatic precipitator (ESP). The data, covering a range of scrubber operating conditions and ESP efficiencies, show that particle collection by a venturi scrubber is not affected by the upstream ESP; i.e., for a given scrubber pressure drop, particle collection efficiency (as a function of particle diameter) is the same whether the ESP is on or off. The experimental results are in excellent agreement with theoretical predictions. Order of magnitude cost estimates indicate that particle collection by ESP scrubber systems is economically attractive when scrubbers must be used for SOx control.
