Wet ESPs or WESPs
The selection of materials of construction for Wet Electrostatic Precipitators (wet ESPs, or WESPs) is a challenging problem. With metals, over specifying the alloy can make the project non-economical, while selecting an insufficient alloy may threaten the longevity of the equipment. To further complicate matters, vendors of wet ESPs cannot be expected to offer long-term warranties with respect to corrosion, but this is exactly what end users want – reasonable assurance that the installed equipment will hold up to the application environment.
Plastic materials can be a solution to this problem but are certainly not a perfect solution. Plastics are subject to damage due to excessive temperature. They are also subject to arc damage from high-voltage sparking. Contact LDX Solutions to find out how we can solve your wet ESPs, or WESPs problem.
