The report gives results of an analytical and experimental study of the use of entrainment separation to remove the liquid mist carried out of a scrubber by the effluent gas. It includes an evaluation of current technology, results of experimental studies of entrainment separator characteristics, and theoretical analyses. Zigzag baffle, knitted mesh, tube bank, packed bed, and cyclone devices were tested. Collection efficiency and reentrainment were measured and related to drop size and separator geometry. Pressure drop as a function of gas flow rate is also reported. The effects of suspended solids on collection efficiency and the nature and extent of solids deposition were also investigated. An auxiliary experiment was employed to help determine solid deposition mechanisms. Mathematical models are given for predicting primary collection efficiency and pressure drop.
