What is an Electrostatic Precipitator?
The electrostatic precipitator is suitable for the precipitation of solid particles. The particles are charged by a flow of ions from the discharge electrode and drift under the influence of the electrical field towards the collecting electrode. The cleaning of the collecting electrodes is achieved by periodic rapping for dry precipitators and by flushing for wet precipitators. The theoretical basis for the design of electrostatic precipitators was worked out for the first time in a study concerning the motion and charging of electrical carriers in cylindrical capacitors.
Various factors for precipitator sizing cannot be calculated; they are based on the experience. The specific electrical resistivity of the dust is the most important criteria for the determination of the precipitator size.
Salient Features of V T Corp’s ESP:
- Specially Designed ‘X’ – Type Gas Distribution Plates for Even distribution of the incoming gas flow throughout the cross-section of the precipitator and to reduce the overall pressure loss to the optimum level.
- The ESP casing and supporting structure is designed to withstand various temperatures and pressure conditions. The supporting structure made from sectional steel consists of a system of fixed and movable supports, which permits compensation of the thermal expansion of the casing.
- Optimization of the Discharge and Collecting System by means of VT-240 Collecting Electrode and Discharge Electrode Type ‘Emitron-15’ & ‘Star’ Electrode.
- Effective Mechanical Rapping Mechanism for Collecting Electrode, Discharge Electrode, and Gas Distribution Plates.
- The microprocessor-based HVR Control system offers a quicker and differentiated response to changes in the prevailing electrical conditions in the precipitator.
