The report gives results of a survey of the flue gas desulfurization system at Duquesne Light Co.'s 400 MW Phillips Power Station, where four parallel Chemico venturi scrubber trains are installed. In addition to the first stage particulate scrubbers, one of the four trains includes a second stage venturi absorber for the control of SO2 emissions. The system uses slaked lime as the absorbing medium and has been operational since July 1973. An overall SO2 removal efficiency of 50 to 60 percent has been attained. The use of magnesium oxide-modified lime is being investigated in an effort to increase the SO2 removal efficiency of the existing system. Numerous start-up and operational problems have been encountered and corrected. A 10-month evaluation of the system was initiated in December 1974 to determine whether additional SO2 removal equipment will be installed.
