Electrostatic Precipitators

Dust laden gases that are created in the production process can be efficiently removed with the aid of an Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP). ESP’s typically collect 95% of the dust from the gas stream.

Precipitators function by electrostatically charging the dust particles in the gas stream. The charged particles are then attracted to and deposited on plates or other collection devices. When enough dust has accumulated, the collectors are shaken to dislodge the dust, causing it to fall to hoppers below. The dust is then removed by a Mechanical Conveying System for disposal or recycling.

Important parameters in precipitator performance include:

  • Gas flow rate
  • Particle size and size distribution
  • Particle resistance
  • Gas temperature

Vortex Engineering designs, supplies, installs and services both wet and dry electrostatic precipitators.

Vortex Engineering services areas throughout New Zealand, including Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington and Dunedin. If you’re looking for an industrial electrostatic precipitator in NZ, talk to the team at Vortex today.
