The results are presented of a study on the influence of back corona on the performance of a laboratory scale wire-plate precipitator, with the plate to plate spacing as a parameter. Back corona is introduced into the precipitator by increasing the ash resistivity, attained by increasing the ash-laden gas temperature from 21 ° C (a no back discharge condition) to 104 ° C. Performance is evaluated in terms of the Deutsch migration velocity and using the particle concentration measurements made… CONTINUE READING
