The purpose of this procedures manual is to describe methods to be used in experimentally characterizing the performance of electrostatic precipitators for pollution control. A detailed description of the mechanical and electrical characteristics of precipitators is given. Procedures are described for measuring the particle size distribution, the mass concentration of particulate matter, and the concentrations of major gaseous components of the flue gas-aerosol mixture. Procedures are also given for measuring the electrical resistivity of the dust. A concise discussion and outline is presented which describes the development of a test plan for the evaluation of a precipitator. By following this outline useful tests may be performed which range in complexity from qualitative and relatively inexpensive to rather elaborate research programs.
