Abstract

A research program to study the conversion of coal to low BTU gas has been undertaken since May, 1982 at the Twin Cities Research Center, U. S. Department of Interior, Bureau of Mines. Part of the study was concerned with evaluating an industrial electrostatic precipitator for tar removal. The ESP, with a design efficiency of 99. 14% at 1400 ACFM, was installed on a slip stream to treat about 1/3 of the total gas from the gasifier. The gas entering the ESP was first quenched by a water spray and the tar droplets formed were then removed by the ESP. This paper describes the experiments performed to determine the efficiency of this Quench/ESP unit.
