The report gives results of the development of a technique for size-selective, high capacity particulate sampling to be used in measuring and characterizing the particles in the wet-scrubbing process for SOx control. It provides information on both wet-scrubbing system process variables, and the efficiency of scrubbers to be used at the TVA test station. The sampler, existing as a manually operated bench-scale prototype, is capable not only of fractionating the particles in the desired range, but also of tolerating the process stream environment. A preliminary evaluation indicated not only that existing hardware did not meet all requirements, but that automatic sampling was more cost effective (despite higher initial costs) than manual sampling, by at least 16 percent. However, program economics resulted in the decision to design a manually operated model.
