NOBREGA, S. W.; FALAGUASTA, M. C. R.  e  COURY, J. R.. A study of a wire-plate eletrostatic precipitator operating in the removal of polydispersed particles. Braz. J. Chem. Eng. [online]. 2004, vol.21, n.2, pp.275-284. ISSN 0104-6632.

Performance of a wire-plate electrostatic precipitator in the removal of particles with a wide particle size distribution was evaluated. The experimental rig utilized consisted of a set of three precipitators whose dimensions could be varied. It was observed that precipitator performance increased with an increase in the gap between the collecting plates, which resulted in a substantial increase in energy consumption per volume of cleaned gas. The grade efficiency predicted by correlations from the literature did not match the experimental measurements, and a new correlation is proposed.

Palavras-chave : electrostatic precipitator; gas cleaning; particle collection.
