The report gives results of a field test evaluation of the performance of the Century Industrial Products FRP-100 wet scrubber installed on a lightweight aggregate kiln. Inlet/outlet tests for particle size distribution with cascade impactors and extractive sampling with an electrical aerosol size analyzer, and plume opacity with a plant process visiometer were conducted. The scrubber, operating at 80% rated capacity, had an aerodynamic cut diameter (50% collection efficiency) of 0.8 microns at a theoretical hydraulic power of 15.8 watts/a cu m/min (0.6 hp/1000 acfm). The liquid-to-gas ratio was about 2.16 l/cu m (16 gal./1000 acf). The formation of submicron aerosol from the evaporation in the gas cooling section of water containing dissolved solids was observed during all tests. Also, the carryover of spray from the scrubber (there was no mist eliminator) was observed at flow rates greater than 23.7 cu m/sec (50,000 acfm).
