Abstract The report gives results of tests of a number of phosphate and polymeric additives--which have proven effective in controlling scale in some commercially encountered calcium-containing systems--for scale control potential in limestone wet scrubbers. Additives selected were Lime Treet; Acrysol A-1, A-3, A-5; Calnox 214 DN; Darex 40; Dequest 2000; PD-8; sodium hexametaphosphate; Calgon CL-14; sodium pyrophosphate; Versenex 80; Quadrol; and sodium tripolyphosphate. The kinetics of oxidation of calcium sulfite in clacium carbonate/sulfite slurries was studied and compared with the oxidation of sodium sulfite solutions. Rates of oxidation in the calcium system, found to be proportional to bisulfite ion concentration, increased in the presence of solid calcium sulfite. Therefore the rate of sulfite dissolution is a contributing factor to the oxidation under normal operating conditions. Cationic impurities, such as sodium or magnesium, which can increase bisulfite concentration in solution in the 5-6 pH range, are expected to accelerate oxidation.
