ABSTRACT

 

Samples of dust emissions were collected from induction furnace using wet scrubbers in small, medium and large scale foundries in Coimbatore from march 2010 to Feb. 2011. These samples were collected using stack monitoring kit APM 621.The emission fraction was measured by the Barium Thorium Titration Method which was designed to cover high concentration factor through the minimum value recommended of 1 ppm, this method gives the better result at higher concentration .Additionally the emission factor were calculated for var- ious flow rate of flue gas and comparative performance characteristics curves were analyzed.
