WESP - Wet Electrostatic Precipitators
A wet ESP is a particle control device that uses electrical forces to remove the particles from the flowing gas stream onto collector plates. The particles are knocked free from the plates and are collected in a hopper located below the unit. In contrast to wet scrubbers, which apply energy directly to the flowing fluid medium, a wet electrostatic precipitator applies energy only to the particulate matter being collected and, therefore, is very efficient in its consumption of energy.
These large structures are very heavy due to the structural requirements involved in supporting the heavy internal equipment. SEPW has experience with the fabrication of heavy plate panels and girders, as well as the associated structural steel.
