Wet ESPs operate in saturated gas streams and are typically used with sticky or difficult to handle dust, combustible dusts, or when there is a large amount of sub-micron capture required. By using electrostatic forces, energy costs are minimized when compared to other technologies, and the technology can capture particulate of a size that pass through a venturi scrubber or baghouse.
The control of fine particulate emissions is often one of the most difficult environmental control problems faced by industry. Sub-micron particles present a significant threat to human health and are one of the leading causes of visibility degradation. The Geoenergy® E-Tube® Wet Electrostatic Precipitator is a cost-effective way to control these emissions.
