Abstract

A parametric study on the relative effect of various electrical forces on aerosol filtration in fibrous and granular filters is presented. The paper covers the engineering practical range of the electrical field intensity and dust particle sizes. Coulombic attraction has the widest range of application but other forces may dominate in some specific applications.
