The report gives results of an evaluation of an Air Pollution Systems (APS) Inc. Electro-Tube, a wet electrostatic precipitator. Fine particle collection efficiency as a function of particle size was computed from data taken on the Electro-Tube. It was operated at gas flow rates of 16.9, 18.9, and 22.9 cu mA/min at ambient conditions. Titanium dioxide was generated as the test aerosol having an approximate mass mean diameter of 1.2 micrometers (A) with a geometric standard deviation of 2.2. Test results indicated that the overall collection efficiency was 96.9%, 98.2%, and 99.3% for the high, medium, and low gas flow rates, respectively.
