HOW DOES IT WORK
Electrostatic precipitators are highly efficient air filtration devices that minimally impede the flow of gases through the device, thereby easily removing fine particulate matter from the air stream.
As air is pulled into the device, it first passes through a metal mesh pre-filter that traps large dust particles. The rest of the gas stream - still filled with tiny oil, fat, grease & smoke particles, is then drawn into an electrical field between a set of ionizing wires and equally-spaced metal plates.
In this electrical field, the fine particulate matter is charged and flows to the second set of parallel grounded plates, where it is collected and forms layers. These layers of contaminants are held on the plates because of the electrostatic pressure but can be washed away later during general cleaning and maintenance.
