DescriptionScope: The electrostatic precipitator remains on of the most cost effective means of controlling the emission of particulates from most industrial processes. This book will be of interest to both users and suppliers of electrostatic precipitators as well as advanced students on environmental based courses. The author identifies the physical and engineering basis for the development of electrical equipment for electrostatic precipitators and thoroughly explores the technological factors which optimise the efficiency of the precipitator and hence minimise emissions, as well as future developments in the electrical field.
Electrical, mechanical, environmental and power systems engineers and students.
