8.Electrostatic precipitator global pollution control device
Anupriya Pathak
Abstract: Electrostatic precipitator, also called electrostatic air cleaner, a device that uses an electric charge to remove certain impurities either solid particles or liquid droplets from air or other gases in smokestacks and other flues. The precipitator functions by applying energy only to the particulate matter being collected, without significantly impeding the flow of gases. Originally designed for recovery of valuable industrial-process materials, electrostatic precipitators are used for air pollution control, particularly for removing particles from waste gases at industrial facilities and power-generating stations.
