- A suitability of 6 packing materials for removal of sodium fire aerosols in a wet cell scrubber was evaluated experimentally by measuring the efficiency and flow resistance of two 10.2 cm deep cells in series at air face velocities of 185 and 289 cm/sec, water flow rates of 0.210 ad 0.387 cm/sup 3//sec/cm/sup 2/, with and without aerosol prehumidification. The most satisfactory material was found to be 50 ..mu..m diameter stainless steel fibers at a packing density of 30 kg/m/sup 3/ (porosity = 0.99). Two 10.2 cm deep cells in series gave a removal efficiency of 85% for typical sodium fire aerosols at a face velocity of 289 cm/sec. Measurement of efficency as a function of particle size indicated a reduction in efficiency in the 0.4 to 1.1 ..mu..m size range for all packing materials.
