Current distribution and particle motion in a barbed plate electrostatic precipitator
Electrohydrodynamic theory suggests that a modification in electrode geometry is a method of creating more favorable electrical and flow conditions in electrostatic precipitators. A novel barbed plate precipitator is designed to provide a more uniform current density distribution and electric field in the inter-electrode gap. Ground plate current densities of both a conventional wire-plate precipitator and the optimized barbed plate precipitator are compared. Particle motion is observed via a laser light-sheet and measured with a laser Doppler anemometer. Streamwise and transverse mean and ...
