An electrostatic precipitator is a highly efficient particulate collection device that removes particulate matter from a gas stream using electrostatics. The technology was developed in the early part of the twentieth century and has evolved to play a major role across a wide range of particulate collecting and control applications.
Electrostatic precipitators can be part of a process that recovers the product from the gas stream so it can be reused. Most precipitators however, are air pollution control devices which eliminate the emission of these fine dust particles, commonly referred to as “smoke” into the environment. read more
