Particulate matter is emitted to some degree from nearly all combustion activities. If released into the atmosphere, particulate matter reduces visibility, can contribute to climate change and lead to serious health problems. To remove impurities from air in smokestacks and other flues, electrostatic precipitators electrostatically charge particulate matter while passing through a corona cloud generated by high voltage. The charged particles are attracted to and deposited on plates or tubes, without significantly impeding the flow of gases.
The amount of carbon dioxide pellets, wood chips and biomass produce when they are burnt correspond to the amount of carbon dioxide they absorb while they are growing. But one drawback is the greater rate of particulate matter emissions. Currently, the most common technology used to reduce the particulate matter emissions are electrostatic precipitators. Typically, the precipitators consist of wires used for the high voltage and tubes for the collecting earthed electrode. The needed high voltage potential depends on the diameter of the tube and the thickness of the high voltage electrode; it varies from 25 to 80kV.

Particulate matter emission has to be managed both inside tunnels to protect driversí safety and health, and outside tunnels in order to limit environmental impacts. Electrostatic precipitators for road tunnels are normally two-stage precipitators which means that the high voltage electrodes preceed the flat collector plates. Electrostatic prcipitators withflat collector plates preceeded by high voltage electrodes operate usually with 7 to 16kV, with some models also having a collector voltage between adjacent plates. Depending on the construction, the collector voltage is e.g. the half or a third of the ionizer voltage. Product suggestions: MSR series, MMR series, CMR series, special CMR series
Sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter from ships pose a threat to air quality and human health. An electrostatic precipitator for ships collects dust and particulate matter. Depending of the mechanical design electrostatic precipitators for ships - both tubes and flat collector plates are possible - the high voltage ranges between 7kV and 30kV.
