Rebuilding and Upgrading Electrostatic Precipitators — A Consultant's Perspective
By: Robert R. Crynack
Date of Publication: unknown


Abstract: Electrostatic precipitators (EPs) have been used for particulate emissions control for nearly 100 years. They are used in many different industrial applications. With new, more stringent pollution control regulations and the high cost of new pollution control equipment, many users are looking for ways to rebuild and upgrade their existing equipment in the most cost-effective way. Many users do not understand all that is required to properly design and operate EPs to achieve maximum efficiency and life expectancy, while minimizing maintenance costs. Sometimes the interests of equipment suppliers do not correspond with the best interests of the user .Sometimes the proposed equipment from suppliers varies greatly. These circumstances have resulted in a worldwide trend of replacing old equipment with oversized new equipment at great expense to the users.
