As the nation's power consumption continues to increase in conjunction with stricter environmental requirements, the need for monitoring the effectiveness of mist eliminator systems becomes a key issue. Techniques for monitoring the performance of these systems under operating conditions is vital for the industry in determining locations of high outages of flue gas desulfurization. This paper discusses one type of instrumentation for monitoring MES performance, the technique and the benefits provided to the industry.
