Dust Precipitation from Boiler Flue Gases

Nature volume 154, page 636 (18 November 1944) | Download Citation



A PAPER on this subject was read in London on November 2 before the Institution of Electrical Engineers, by John Bruce. In it the author deals particularly with the electrostatic precipitation of dust entrained by flue gases produced from the combustion of anthracite in pulverized form. The paper describes field experiments and results on a pilot-scale electrostatic precipitator operating on such flue gases, as well as the salient features of a large-scale commercial installation. Some of the operating results obtained therefrom are also discussed.
