The report gives results of an evaluation of an electric curtain for the purpose of particulate control and removal. If the particles are charged by corona, the curtain will stop them only in a very slow air flow (less than 2 cm/sec). At these slow flows, a vertical curtain would stop the particles and a 45-degree curtain would move them along the curtain without penetrating it. A horizontal electric curtain could be used to suspend the particles against gravity. Finally, an attempt to use highly charged water drops as the particle collection mechanism was unsuccessful because of electrical breakdown caused by the water.
