Why a McGill AirClean Wet Electrostatic Precipitator (WESP)?

<dd></dd>Wet Electrostatic Precipitator (WESP) | McGill AirClean

McGill AirClean— An Industry Leader
McGill AirClean was the first to install a WESP on a wood dryer application (1983) and to the first to install a WESP on a combustion fuel-fired boiler (1987).

Horizontal Flow— Horizontal flow is ideal for wet ESP design, as it naturally separates the gas from the contaminated liquid. The gas, having little weight, is easily pulled or pushed horizontally through the wet ESP while the heavier liquid cascades to the collection troughs below.

Multiple Field versus Single Field— McGill AirClean's wet ESP usually consists of a series of independent fields, which are essential for applications requiring high availability. Some applications require on-line washing with high water flows in an electrostatic field. This periodic high water flow quenches all power to that field. With a single field wet ESP, there is no pollution control efficiency during the wash cycle. Environmental authorities generally require tests during the wash cycles to be averaged into the final results. However, with multiple fields, only one of the fields is washed at a time, which causes only a minor, intermittent decrease in efficiency of a few percent.

Redundancy— With multiple fields there is built-in redundancy. Therefore failure of one major component, such as a transformer/rectifier, results in only minor reduction in pollution control efficiency. However, when the entire pollution control system is dependent on one transformer/rectifier and its associated controls, as is common in competing ESP designs, failure of any component results in complete failure of the pollution control system.

Flat Plates— Heavy-gauge plates, rather than small diameter tubes, serve as collection surfaces. That allows for quick and easy access to all collection surfaces.

Easy Internal Access— Horizontal flow and flat plates offer the user access to all surfaces inside the wet ESP. If reduced downtime is important to the user, the unequaled access provided by the McGill AirClean design is a must.

Heavy-duty Industrial Construction— McGill AirClean's wet ESPs are designed and constructed for industrial use, with materials such as stainless steel or heavy carbon plate for long-term industrial use. No commercial light-gauge construction is used.
