Dry ESP - Electrostatic Precipitator
Principle of Operation: What we perceive as a fume, smoke or mist actually are tiny air-borne particles, the bulk of it smaller than one micron in size. That's why they penetrate so easily through most filters, contaminating industrial and commercial exhausts. Electrostatic Precipitation is one of the most efficient methods known for removal of sub micron particles from contaminated air. Electrostatic Precipitator acts as a magnet, attracting unwanted particles from the passing air, resulting in a clean and less odor discharge.
Ducon Industrial Electrostatic Precipitators are built for tough industrial and commercial applications. Heavy-gauge housings accommodate heavy-gauge electrostatic modules which are the largest, heaviest and by far, the most powerful in its class. All units are furnished with safety interlock switches to prevent electrical shock. 3 " deep bottom with drain for collected contaminants is standard.
Ducon Dry ESP Model E-7 electrostatic precipitator is incredibly efficient. It will remove particles as small as 0.01 micron in size. Overall efficiencies (for all particle sizes) of 99% or higher are common in our unit.
Advantages & Unique Features
HIGH COLLECTION EFFICIENCY
Any efficiency requirements, however high, can be met.
PRACTICALLY NO RESISTANCE TO AIR FLOW
Ducon Precipitator is actually an open duct; therefore, resistance to air is negligible. This makes it possible to retrofit precipitators into existing systems without major replacement of the duct and the blower.
NO CLOGGING EVER
Since there is no filtration media in Ducon's E-7, there is no clogging that leads to exhaust choking.
HIGH AIR VELOCITY
Unattainable in media filters. Ducon's E-7 will easily perform at duct air velocities, which means that it can be as slim as the duct itself, an important feature in a crowded space.
AUTOMATIC HIGH VOLTAGE POWER GENERATOR
No need for constant monitoring. Everything is automatic.
WIDEST SPACING BETWEEN COLLECTION PLATES
This means less maintenance because wide spacing in Ducon's E-7 can accommodate more dirt before cleaning becomes necessary.
If the collected contaminant is a liquid, it will drain from the collection modules to the bottom and then to the outside of the unit. And if it is not, it must be removed regularly from the precipitator for two reasons: 1) A dirty precipitator has lower performance. 2) Collected contaminant may represent a hazard. Choice of cleaning methods depend upon nature of the collected contaminant to be removed.
