The report summarizes IERL-RTP sponsored evaluations of eight novel control devices: Aronetics Two-Phase Jet Scrubber, Braxton Sonic Agglomerator, Centrifield Scrubber (Entoleter Corp.), Cleanable High Efficiency Air Filter (CHEAF, Johns-Manville), Dynactor Scrubber (RP Industries), Lone Star Steel Steam Hydro Scrubber, Mystaire (Heat Systems-Ultrasonics, Inc.), and Pentapure Scrubber (Purity Corp.). For each device is given a description, potential applications, theory of operation, collection efficiency (as a function of particle size), power consumption, and waste disposal techniques. Methods are detailed for comparing collection efficiencies and costs. The general theory of collection in scrubbers and by high porosity filters is presented to indicate the important parameters and their influence on collection efficiency.
