The report gives results of a project intended to demonstrate the use of a dry, solid-media heat exchanger for the production of hot blast air for the cupola as an integral part of the air pollution control system. Economic advantages--in the form of reduction in fuel costs, operating costs, and air pollution control equipment costs--were expected. Data on the operation of the cupola and heat exchanger were to be analyzed with, and used to refine, a computer model. The refined model was then to have been used to extend the results to other operations. The system never became operational because of problems in interfacing the operation of the cupola, heat exchanger, and air pollution control systems. The report outlines system design deficiencies, presents the results of the work completed on the computer model, and describes the test equipment selected.
