Electronic Air Cleaners: Electrostatic Precipitators

What is electrostatic precipitation and how does it work?

Two stage electrostatic precipitators are composed of two sections, a charging section and a collection section. The charging section uses ionizer wires to impart a positive charge to the incoming smoke, fume and dust particles. The charged particles are then drawn into a secondary electric field where they are collected on a series of metal plates. Then, the electrostatic precipitators re-circulate clean air into the general airstream.

Electrostatic Precipitators

Electronic air cleaners maintain a relatively high efficiency on particles in a range of .01 micron to 1 micron. Because of their inherently open cell design, electronic air cleaners create a low pressure drop that greatly minimizes fan horse power, and translates into energy savings as compared to other types of air cleaning systems. Lower fan horse power also means a quieter operation. The primary air filters are cleanable, an important factor in considering the on-going operational cost and disposal issues. The quality built electronic cells from Air Quality Engineering that are part of the air cleaner are designed to be dishwasher-safe. Superior craftsmanship is prevalent in the all ceramic insulators and rugged aluminum cell construction.
