Principle of ESP
Principle of ESP(Electrostatic Precipitator) operation:
# High DC –ve potential is applied to discharge electrode with respect to grounded collecting plate.
# Above di-electric strength, the break-down of medium takes place.
# Discharge of free electrons from emitting electrode which move towards collecting plates.
# Ionize gas molecule & charges dust particle negatively.
# These negatively charged dust particles moves towards collecting plate, gets collected & loose their charge.
