Collection efficiency can be remarkably improved by recognizing that the dust particle size distribution is nonuniform inside the precipitator and that a skewed flow profile can reduce particle emissions between 30% to 60% (average 40%). PSL partners with Stothert Engineering to bring clients a simple and cost effective way to retrofit precipitators to achieve their environmental emission targets. PSL models the gas flow inlet, the effects of swirl vanes, the perforated plates, ducting, and pressure drop due to fields. Stothert Engineering designs the retrofit and uses an advanced particle model to determine the best way to skew the flow based on the flow results calculated by PSL.
