The report gives results of an evaluation of a Ceilcote ionizing wet scrubber installed on a refractory brick kiln. Tests involved particulate mass emission, particle size distribution, and opacity. Overall efficiency was 93% with an average outlet opacity determined with a heated plant process visiometer (PPV) of 8% over a 1.68 m (5.5 ft) path length. The average particle cut diameter of the scrubber system was 0.5 micrometer. The estimated theoretical power requirement for the ionizing wet scrubber was 41 W/actual cu m (1.54 hp/1000 actual cu m). The scrubber system developed for the kiln included a cooling tower to provide chilled water for the prescrubber to condense volatile emissions which required 26 W/actual cu m (2.5hp/1000 acfm). The performance of the ionizing wet scrubber, based on theoretical power input, exceeds that of a venturi scrubber.
