Electrostatic Demister also known as electrostatic mist precipitator, the charging and collection steps take place within two different regions.
The ionizing stage consists of a series of small positively charged wires equally spaced from parallel ground tubes that charges the mist particles suspended in the air flow through the ionizer.
The second stage consists of parallel metal plates less than 1 inch apart.
The liquid particles receive a positive charge in the ionizer stage and are collected at the negative plates in the second stage.
Mist particles will combine with other mist particles and form droplets. When the droplets become large enough, they drip off the collection cell.
