Abstract The report summarizes the first year of operation of EPA-owned mobile test units that are being used in the field to study the applicability of different control methods to the control of fine particulate emitted from a wide variety of sources. Two mobile units are described: a fabric filter (baghouse) and a wet scrubber. The latter includes two types: venturi and sieve tray. Results from the baghouse tests on a coal-fired power plant indicate suitability of a baghouse, with woven glass bags, for control of dust from this type of source. Results from tests on a pulp mill lime recovery kiln show high dust removal efficiency; however, the associated high moisture content of the gases portends operating problems sufficient to indicate that a baghouse would be unsuitable for control of dust from this source. Operation of the mobile scrubber unit during the year was confined to startup testing and correction of mechanical and operating difficulties.
