Review on Development of an Automated System for Gas Distribution Test of ESP

Abstract—An Electrostatic precipitator is a large, industrial emission control unit, which is designed to trap and remove dust particles from the exhaust gas stream of an industrial process. Precipitators are used in industries like Power, Electric, Cement, Chemicals, Metals and Paper industries. In many industrial plants, particulate matter created in the industrial process is carried as dust in the hot exhaust gases. These dust-laden gases pass through an Electrostatic precipitator that collects most of the dust. Cleaned gas then passes out of the precipitator and through a stack to the atmosphere. Precipitators typically collect 99.9% or more of the dust from the gas stream. A unidirectional high voltage is applied between these electrodes, connecting its negative polarity to collecting electrodes, which are also earthed. The charged particles are then attracted to and deposited on plates. When enough dust has accumulated, the collectors are shaken to dislodge the dust below. The dust is then removed by a conveyor system for disposal or recycling. In this review paper present designing an automated system for measuring the gas distribution throughout the cross-section of the ESP, then the experimentation with wind velocity sensors (hot wire anemometer type) and also design of overhead travelling mechanism for horizontal and vertical motions to carry the sensors and to capture the wind velocity data, using wired/ wireless network system for capturing the data from the sensors to a database pc and also the development of application software’s for creating a database for each trial.
