The report gives a capsule summary of the best available design models for wet scrubbers and their application to fine particulate control. Details of the models are reported in the Scrubber Handbook and other EPA publications listed in the bibliography. When EPA initiated its Wet Scrubber Systems Study in 1970, the state-of-the-art was largely empirical. Each application was considered to be a special case which could only be dealt with on the basis of long and specific experience. Engineering design was based on a primative, cut-and-try approach and often resulted in an expensive overdesign to cover the wide range of uncertainty. There was also very little scrubber performance information available. In the Wet Scrubber Systems Study all available information concerning wet scrubber theory and practice was reviewed and evaluated. The best available engineering design methods were evaluated and, where necessary, new or revised methods were developed to provide as sound a basis as possible for predicting performance. The Scrubber Handbook, published in 1972, resulted from this study.
