Abstract

Electrostatic precipitators (ESP) are widely used for collection of particulate matters. In the present paper, a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model, based on Eulerian-Lagrangian framework, is used to simulate the gas-particle flow under electric field. A typical two-stage ESP is chosen as a case study and its collection performance is assessed under a series of modified geometric conditions, including inlet pipework, perforated plate, addition of flow baffles, and spatial extent of electric field. The results show that the collection efficiency for PM2.5 can be increased by 20% after optimization.
