Analysis estimates sulfuric acid emissions from FCCU wet gas scrubbers

A new analysis of data collected from various field tests allows more accurate estimations of sulfuric acid emissions from FCC units equipped with wet gas scrubbers.FCC units are potential sources of H2SO4 emissions; we previously published a general guidance for estimating these emissions (OGJ, Feb. 9, 2004, p. 48). This earlier work included an emission factor for units with a wet gas scrubber, but it was derived from limited data.Since then, we discovered 47 additional test results for the flue gas from FCC unit wet gas scrubbers. Our analysis, based on a review of these results, is a much more accurate representation of H2SO4 concentrations than the default factor published in 2004.Su...
