Operating Characteristics of a High-temperature Electrostatic Precipitator.
South African Min and Eng J 1969 Dec; 80(4011):1368-1369, 1371, 1373, 1375, 1377, 1379,
A semicommercial, high-temperature electrostatic precipitator and adjunct equipment are described, and operating characteristics at 1,470 deg. F and 80 psig are presented for both positive and negative polarity. Removal efficiency for negative corona was about 91 to 96 percent while that for positive corona was only about 75 to 77 percent. Results are compared with those from bench-scale investigations, and equipment limitations are discussed. Theoretical aspects of the precipitation process are related to the operating characteristics.
