A comprehensive test program which characterized the particulate removal, sulfur dioxide removal, operating costs, maintenance costs, waste product properties operating experience and capacity of a size 50 R-C/Bahco scrubbing system installed to treat flue gas from coal fired boilers at Rickenbacker AFB, Columbus, Ohio, was completed. Tests were conducted over an 18 month period during which 27,216 tons of coal were burned. The results from this program demonstrate that this system is capable of controlling both particulate and sulfur dioxide emissions from the combustion of high sulfur (2-4%) mid-Western coal at firing rates from 20 MM to 200 MM Btu/hr. A cost of $4.27 per ton for optimum operation with limestone was projected. Waste product properties relative to dewatering handling and disposal were found to be similar to those measured for other FGD waste products.
