Electrostatic Precipitator are the devices which
removes the entrained particulate contaminants and
unwanted fine particles from the exhaust gases. The use of
ESP, in particular power generation plant will help to
reduce the environmental problems in two ways- On one
hand, reducing the heavy or large particles, dust, fume or
mist in exhaust gas and on the other hand it helps in cement
industries for manufacturing the portland cement and
bricks. It mainly works on the principle of electrostatic
attraction (like charges repel; unlike charges attract). The
contribution of this work lies in the comparative study and
assessment of different factors that affects the performance
of dry Electrostatic Precipitator in a developing country
India to reduce the pollution particles.
