Acid Mist Control with Wet Electrostatic Precipitators

Wet electrostatic precipitators (WESPs) provide high efficiency control of acid mists from the SO2-rich gas stream in sulfuric acid plants.

The SonicKleen™ wet electrostatic precipitator design delivers superior performance over other WESPs through a combination of vertical downflow and hexagonal tube design with SonicCharge rigid mast electrodes. Continuous irrigation of the tubes eliminates maintenance-related downtime. An optional upflow WESP design utilizing high intensity mast electrodes can be provided for acid mist and other appropriate applications.

B&W MEGTEC has developed SonicCharge CCM, a conductive composite material to replace systems traditionally fabricated from lead, which withstands corrosive environments present in sulfuric acid plant gas streams.

B&W MEGTEC offers dry sorbent injection (DSI) technology for SO3/H2SO4 control.
