Electrostatic Precipitators (ESP)

Infrafone Sonic Soot Cleaning is applicable on cold-side or hot-side and dry Electrostatic Precipitators (ESPs). For optimum efficiency of the ESP the applied voltage to the discharge electrodes should be as high as possible without causing a too high sparkover rate. As soot particles accumulate on discharge electrodes the sparkover rate increases forcing the applied voltage to be decreased, leading to decreased efficiency of the ESP. By applying Infrafone Sonic Soot Cleaning on ESPs the accumulation of particles on discharge electrodes and distribution plates is reduced.

The benefits that the Sonic Soot Cleaning System brings to the customer are:

  • Reduced emissions »Reduced environmental impact
  • Reduced maintenance »Reduced need for manual cleaning
  • Fewer outages »Increased availability
