Electrostatic Precipitation

Part of the Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics book series (SSAOPP, volume 81)


Suspended particles in air may be caused by industrial processes and use of wood or coal as a fuel. These particles are a menace from the health and a esthetics point of view. This has caused a widespread concern about the removal of such particles and enforcement of increasingly severe regulations. Electrostatic precipitation is a powerful means to fight this menace.
