Title: Designing wet duct/stack systems for coal-fired plants

Abstract

A multitude of variables must be accounted for during the design and development of a wet-stack flue gas desulfurization system. The five-phase process detailed in this article has proven effective on more than 60 wet-stack system design studies. The process is the result of studies by EPRI detailed in two reports entitled: entrainment in wet stacks', and 'wet stacks design guide. A basic understanding of these concepts will help inform early design decisions and produce a system amenable to wet operation. 2 refs., 5 figs.
