Abstract

A small-scale electrostatic precipitator (ESP) was developed for reduction of the emitted particulate matter (PM) from a residential wood stove by collaboration of PHX innovation and DTU Chemical engineering. Three discharge electrodes with different length and diameter of wires are examined. Based on the experimental findings, this ESP with discharge electrode type 21.6.2 (10 wires with the length of 550 mm and the diameter of 0.4mm) has achieved the highest precipitation efficiency in terms of number (95%), total mass of the particles (70%),and mass of PM10 (88%). Flue gas properties (temperature, CO2 concentration, CO concentration and particleconcentration) are applied to explain the consumed current of the ESP. PM emissions is determined based on numberand mass concentration of the emitted particles from the source of combustion.
