Practical Determination Of Efficiency Of Electrostatic Precipitators, João F. Gomes

João F Gomes

Electrostatic precipitators are one of the most efficient particulate pollution control equipments used mainly for the treatment of gaseous effluents at high flow rates. Consequently electrostatic precipitators are widely used in thermal power plants, cement plants and pulp mills. Apart from a high efficiency other advantages are related with the fact that this type of equipment has a considerable low payback time in industrial plants where the particulate recovered from the gases has commercial value and can be recycled within the industrial process itself or even sold to other industrial companies. Where sulphate (Kraft) pulp mills are concerned an electrostatic ...
