I'm learning a lot from your posts.


On this and about the last 5 or 6 of the economizers that I'll installed, have had nothing between the outlet of the economizers and the stack outlet. If there is lots of soot in the economizer, its going out into the atmosphere thru the stack outlet, when the soot blower is cycled. If its a coal fired or bio-mass fired unit, then there is usually a scrubber and a baghouse with outlet filters.
