ESP Discharge Electrodes

Our Spiral ESP Discharge Electrodes manufactured from 904 L wire are in great demand

Emitting Electrodes, also knows as Discharge Electrodes is the heart of the ESP. These are High Voltage internal and ionizes the gases and creates the electrical field. When the voltage breaks the gas down at the surface of the electrode, it generates corona power. This leads to creation of corona tufts on the surface of the electrode. Negative polarity voltage is applied to the electrode. The electrical field forces dust particles in the gas stream to migrate toward the collecting plates. The particles then precipitate onto the collecting plates.

Discharge electrodes are typically supported from the upper discharge frame and are held in alignment between the upper and lower discharge frames. The upper discharge frame is in turn supported from the roof of the ESP casing.

The electrode design and it’s materials depend on various factors including the process for which the ESP is installed and the properties and composition of the flue gas.

Types of ESP Discharge Electrodes

PTMS Global supplies Emitting / Discharge Electrodes for Electrostatic Precipitates of all designs and makes. Raw material used for the manufacturing directly impacts the life and durability of the Electrodes. The finish of the product greatly affects the corona generation and overall performance of the ESP. As such, proper care is taken in the manufacturing of each and every Emitting Electrode as well as the packing of the finished materials. The following designs of Emitting Electrodes are export by us.

  • Spiral Emitting Electrodes
  • Pipe and Spike Electrodes
  • Ribbon Electrodes
