With the ever-increasing concern of pollution all over the world, are you planning to install equipment which can eliminate the harmful dust particles from the exhaust gas stream? Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) can be a great choice. Wondering what makes this equipment so beneficial? Read on.
ESPs are highly efficient equipment and have the ability to remove smoke and dust from the airstream by interfering minimally with the flow of gases through the device. These use a high-intensity electric field for ionising the dust particles in the airstream and the particles are then collected by oppositely charged collectors. Widely used in the elimination of fly ash from boiler power plants, ESPs are now a major addition in power supply industries.
Below are a few advantages to installing ESPs!
Electrostatic Precipitator Part: 4 Advantages Of ESPs In A Thermal Power Plant
- Collection Of Both Wet And Dry Pollutants
Electrostatic precipitators are available in two kinds – wet and dry. Dry ESPs are used for collecting various dry pollutants such as cement particles and ash. On the other hand, wet ESPs are used for removing wet particles such as oil, tar, resin, paint and everything that is not dry conventionally.
- High Efficiency Of Removal Of Pollutants/Particles
The efficiency of an electrostatic precipitator part depends on numerous factors such as the corona power ratio, the resistance of the particles, etc. The efficiency of an ESP is very high for the elimination of particles under normal circumstances. It is believed that this industrial equipment can remove up to 99% of the total dust particles. ESPs have relatively high collection efficiencies over a varied range of particle sizes.
- Low Operating Costs
Not only are electrostatic precipitators easy to operate, but they even come with low operating costs. The operating costs for ESP are very low, making it an affordable option for all. What makes these your ideal option is that they are economically feasible in the long run. This advanced equipment can stand the test of time and require little maintenance.
So what are you still here for? Time to get an ESP installed in your thermal power plant!
