Abstract
This document presents the results of an investigation of corrosion problems in particulate control equipment. During the investigation, corrosion problems in 38 fabric filters, wet scrubbers and electrostatic precipitators were observed and 7 control equipment manufacturers were interviewed. The document also contains guidelines to assist control equipment users and enforcement personnel in reducing particulate emissions resulting from corrosion-related malfunctions. Key parameters discussed include scrubber liquor composition, materials selection, the sulfuric acid dewpoint, and thermal insulation. Controlled particulate emissions sources discussed include rotary dryers and kilns, cupolas, incinerators, and steam boilers.
