Vane electrostatic precipitator

Patent No. 8,894,745

Issued: November 25, 2014
Filed: February 9, 2012
Term Extension: 294 days

Inventor: Dunn; John P. (Horseheads, NY)


A vane electrostatic precipitator (VEP) controls the air flow so that the entrained air particles are continuously subjected to a stress in the form of drag as they flow in front and behind vanes electrodes in the precipitator. It is not based on achieving laminar air flow over the collecting plates. Instead, efficient collection is achieved by operating with a narrow air stream and using vane electrodes in various configurations with porous back plates that gradually reduce the flow rate of the entrained air thereby allowing the particles to precipitate and collect on the vanes.
