The report gives results of fine particle scrubber performance tests on industrial installations and the comparisons of experimental data with mathematical models. Particle size and concentration in the inlet and outlet scrubber gas streams were measured by means of cascade impactors and other apparatus. Tests were completed for a valve-type tray on a urea prilling tower, vaned centrifugal on a potash dryer, mobile bed on a coal-fired boiler, venturi on a coal-fired boiler, wetted fibrous filter on a salt dryer, impingement plate on a salt dryer, and venturi rod on a cupola. Performance is reported as particle penetration as a function of particle diameter. Mathematical models are satisfactory for all the scrubbers tested except the mobile bed. Information on costs, operating problems, maintenance, and other system characteristics are reported.
