Series Title.

A novel wet electrostatic precipitator is designed for control of fine aerosol from humid effluent gases. It operates on the principle of unipolar particle charging in a DC corona discharge in a high velocity (> 20 m/s) ionizing stage and aerosol precipitation in the low velocity . An electrostatic precipitator (ESP) is a particle control device that uses electrical forces to move the particles out of the flowing gas stream and onto collector plates. The particles are given an electrical charge by forcing them to pass through a corona, a region in which gaseous ions flow. For more information, see the box Monitoring and the CAM Rule.. Costs. Costs of electrostatic precipitators are discussed in the EPA Air Pollution Control Cost Manual *, Section 6, Chapter 3 - Electrostatic Precipitators (Sixth Edition) (70 pp, K, About PDF) of monitoring systems, both Continuous Emission Monitors and parametric monitoring systems, are addressed in the EPA Air. Electrostatic precipitators are very efficient collectors of very fine particles. However, the amount of dust collected is directly proportional to the current drawn, so that the electrical energy used by an electrostatic precipitator can be substantial, with resulting high operating cost.

Electrostatic precipitators and fabric filters are currently the technologies of choice for coal-fired power generation facilities as they can meet current and pending legislation particulate matter levels while cleaning large volumes of flue gas, achieve very high collection efficiencies, and remove fine particles. Electrostatic precipitator, also called electrostatic air cleaner, a device that uses an electric charge to remove certain impurities—either solid particles or liquid droplets—from air or other gases in smokestacks and other flues. The precipitator functions by applying energy only to the particulate matter being collected, without significantly impeding the flow of gases. "Electrostatic Precipitation" includes selected papers presented at the 11th International Conference on Electrostatic Precipitation. It presents the newest developments in electrostatic precipitation, flue gas desulphurization (FGD), selective catalytic reduction (SCR), and non-thermal plasma techniques for multi-pollutants emission control. For small flow rates where electrostatic precipitators are economically not feasible, a new type of wet scrubber may be an alternative. Industrial separation of fine particles with difficult.
