Bionomic HEI wESp offers state-of-the-art fine-particulate control
Bionomic Industries, Inc., Mahwah, NJ, a manufacturer of proven air pollution abatement, product and heat recovery technologies, has launched its new HEI Wet Electrostatic Precipitator System (WESP).
Described as a breakthrough in state-of-the-art fine particulate control, the HEI WESP system incorporates a unique discharge electrode technology that can be sized to specific applications. It also concentrates a high-intensity ionizing corona in strategic areas within the collecting tubes instead of distributing it along the entire length of the tubes’ treatment area.
The resultant particle charging fields are two to three times stronger than conventional precipitators and deliver higher particulate charges, higher migration velocities and a smaller precipitator size for gas capacities from 1,000 through 300,000 acfm, Bionomic says.
Other key features of the system are the available methods for collection tube cleaning, gas preleaning and conditioning. Unlike other precipitators that utilize sprays, overflow weirs or packed marble beds, the HEI WESP incorporates the Ultimix Conditioning system for gas saturation and collection tube cleaning and the patented RotaBed pre-scrubber for acid removal and particulate loading reduction.
PLC-based voltage and spark controls (to maintain maximum electric field stability), non-fouling insulator locations and new improved materials of construction that provide more resistance to corrosive gases complete the advanced yet economical system.
Typical applications include submicron particulate scrubbing, aerosols, mists and smoke removal.
