The purpose of this manual is to provide capital, operating, and maintenance costs for air pollution control systems. Capital costs are provided for component equipments, such as ductwork, dampers, heat exchangers, mechanical collectors, fans, motors, stacks, cooling towers, pumps, and dust removal equipment. Five types of control devices are included: (1) high voltage electrostatic precipitators, (2) venturi scrubbers, (3) fabric filters, (4) thermal and catalytic incinerators, (5) adsorbers. Operating and maintenance costs are provided for complete systems. A discussion of the control devices and factors affecting costs is included, along with design parameters for 27 industries. The life cycle cost analysis technique is briefly described and an example of the cost estimating methodology is given.
