This is the second supplement to the OAQPS Control Cost Manual (Fourth Edition). The supplement consists of a new Manual chapter, Chapter 9 ('Gas Absorbers'). Like the other chapters in the Manual, Chapter 9 is self-contained. It discusses: (1) the types and applications of packed column gas absorbers used in air pollution control; (2) the theory underlying their operation and design; (3) basic sizing procedures; and (4) current data and procedures for estimating study-level (+ or - 30%-accurate) capital and annual costs. In particular, the chapter contains 1991 column and packing costs, which are correlated with appropriate sizing parameters (e.g., column height and diameter). Finally, Chapter 9 includes: a comprehensive example problem that illustrates the sizing and costing procedures; three appendices; a table of contents; and a list of references.
