Title A high-speed electric air filter for mines with a liquid precipitating electrode
Original title Skorostnoj rudničnyj ėlektrofil'tr s židkostnym osaditel'nym ėlektrodom [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Oct. 1981, No.10, p.54-56. Illus. 5 ref.
Abstract In a new air filter for use in mines, horizontal pans of water are the precipitating surfaces; the liquid offers a very flat surface which is continuously renewed, and precipitated dust is continuously removed by the liquid stream. The design of the filter makes use of both electrostatic and aerodynamic forces: the air stream makes repeated contact with the precipitating electrodes, which promotes inertial precipitation of the entrained dust. A description, diagram and performance characteristics of the filter are given. The filter can be used for cleaning both exhaust ventilation air and air from local exhaust systems in ferrous ore comminution, enrichment and sintering plants.
