An air-pollution control system, the wet electrostatic precipitator efficiently cleans industrial gases of fine particulate matter, acid mists and aerosols to meet environmental regulations and protect downstream equipment.
The wet electrostatic precipitator can remove up to 98 percent of particulate in a single stage, depending on the characteristics of the gas stream. Increased removal efficiency is possible with alternative configurations, says the manufacturer. It was designed to provide efficient contaminant capture, achieved through increased operating voltage that requires less collecting surface area. The gas-distribution system is designed to optimize flow through the system. Features of the advanced WESP system include decreased maintenance, enhanced performance, standardization and faster installation times, according to the manufacturer.
