Meeting tougher pollution requirements: Electrostatic precipitators for combustion and drying processes
Read this article for information about using an electrostatic precipitator to control particle emissions in your combustion or drying process. A fabric filter isn't often used for these processes because the dryer's wet airstream can blind the filter elements. The first sections explain how the precipitator works and discuss the SCA parameter and factors contributing to collection efficiency. Final sections describe how collected particles are removed, how to select a dry or wet precipitator, and some comparative information.
As you become more aware of industry's impact on the environment, you're probably becoming an expert not only in manufacturing your dry bulk product but in controlling air pollution, as well. This is also true for those of us manufacturing process equipment because these days our customer's first questions aren't about cost, throughput rates, or equipment features, but about how the equipment will affect the customer's emissions profile.
