The paper describes a flux force/condensation (FF/C) scrubbing system that was built to control particulate emissions from a secondary metals recovery furnace. Total mass penetration and fractional penetration measurements were made under several different operating modes. The performance of the demonstration scrubber was consistent with the results of previous studies on FF/C scrubbing. The system was generally capable of 90-95% efficiency on particles with a mass median aerodynamic diameter of 0.75 microamps. This efficiency was achieved with a 68 cm (27 in.) W.C. gas-phase pressure drop.
