Abstract : The report summarizes the results of a survey and analysis of the application of conventional air pollutant abatement systems to the exhaust gas from jet engine test cells. The following methods for gas treatment were investigated: wet scrubbers, incinerators, electrostatic precipitators, filters, dry inertial collectors. The least costly methods for meeting present emission standards are water scrubbing systems. One of the most attractive of wet scrubbers using Koch Flexitrays is developed in detail. The report covers the associated problem of water supply and disposal. The report also includes research and development suggestions for test cell emission control. (Author)
