The report gives results of advanced testing (late November 1976 - June 1978) of 30,000-35,000 acfm (10 MW equivalent) lime/limestone wet scrubbers for SO2 and particulate removal at TVA's Shawnee power station. Forced oxidation with two scrubber loops was developed on the venturi/spray tower system with limestone, lime, and limestone/MgO slurries. Bleed stream oxidation was successful only with limestone/MgO slurry. Forced oxidation with a single scrubber loop was developed on the TCA system with limestone slurry. Other test blocks on the TCA were limestone with low fly ash loadings, limestone type and grind, automatic limestone feed control, limestone reliability, limestone with Ceilcote egg-crate type packing, lime/MgO, and flue characterization.
