The report describes test results from a prototype lime/limestone scrubbing test facility for removing SO2 and particulates from flue gases. The facility consists of three parallel scrubbers--a venturi/spray tower, a Turbulent Contact Absorber (TCA), and a Marble-Bed Absorber--each able to treat a 10-Mw equivalent (30,000 acfm) of flue gas from a coal-fired boiler at TVA's Shawnee Station. The short-term (less than one day) limestone factorial tests, were conducted at high (6.0-6.2) scrubber inlet liquor pH. Longer term (about 500 hours) limestone reliability verification test were conducted at reduced (5.6-5.8) scrubber inlet liquor pH, to increase system reliability and limestone utilization. An objective of testing has been to identify the most economically attractive lime/limestone system operating conditions, consistent with reasonable performance. (Modified author abstract)
