In a coalfired power plant, using the force of an induced electrostatic charge, an electrostatic precipitator (ESP) is used to remove ash, dust and smoke from flue gas so it does not pass into the atmosphere.
Electrostatic Precipitator is a technique used to decrease the pollution content in the flue gasses. It is generally used in Thermal power plants to control the pollution caused by flue gasses. In this article I will explain about the working, advantages and disadvantages of an Electrostatic Precipitator.
Electrostatic precipitator (ESP) is a particulate removal device that removes suspended particulate matter from combustible products using an electrostatic force. In an ESP basically 4 operations takes place. Ionisation: The flue gases produced by the combustion of fuel in the boiler are passed through the ESP and is first ionised.
Electrostatic precipitators clean industrial useful and waste gases using a wide range of processes. We offer a complete range of electric power supply and automation, for both new plants and for increased efficiency of existing plants.
Electrostatic Precipitator Power and Control. Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs) are used to collect solid particulate matter from the exhaust gases emitted by industrial processes such as coalfired power generation, steel and cement manufacturing, and waste incineration. They are also used in a similar manner in chemical and wet processes.
