Improving Your Precipitator Operation
Improvement or optimization of precipitator operation can result in significant savings. Many specific situations encourage a review of precipitator operation:
- Deterioration of existing equipment
- Tightening of air pollution emission regulations
- Changes in products and/or production rates
- Frequent forced outages
- De-rating of production
The key areas for performance improvement are reducing re-entrainment, improving gas flow distribution, and optimizing corona power.
