The report gives results of a laboratory pilot scale evaluation of a multiple plate, horizontal spray, flux force/condensation (FF/C) scrubber for the removal of fine particulates. Effects of the significant operational parameters on the scrubber performance were experimentally studied. Scrubber performance data are presented in terms of particle penetration as a function of particle size. The experimental results are compared with predictions from mathematical models. Optimum operational regions and technical and economic feasibility of FF/C scrubbing are determined and demonstrated for a single fine particle pollution source. The promising experimental results clearly indicate that further development of FF/C scrubbing is warranted.
