Ionitron Washdown Electrostatic Air Filter

    Units are available in sizes from 944 L/s up to 90,000 L/s air flow
    Australian Standard AS1132 gives an efficiency of 87% to No.1 test dust. 
    The normal initial operating resistance of an Ionitron unit is 51Pa. at rated capacity

The AES Environmental Ionitron electrostatic air filter consists of three major components – the ionizer, the collector cell, the power pack and on automatic models, the washing header. 

Dirty air enters through the ionizer, which consists of a number of fine tungsten wires suspended between flat ground electrodes. A strong electrostatic field is set up between the wires and the ground plates by a 13kV DC supply from the power pack. The field is sufficiently strong to charge every particle which then passes through the collector cell which has parallel plates alternatively charged to 6.5kV DC by the power pack. The charged particles are attached to the plates where they are held by a special adhesive 

Operation 

Dirty air enters through the ionizer, which consists of a number of fine tungsten wires suspended between flat ground electrodes. A strong electrostatic field is set up between the wires and the ground plates by a 13kV DC supply from the power pack. The field is sufficiently strong to charge every particle that then passes through the collector cell that has parallel plates alternatively charged to 6.5kV DC by the power pack. The charged particles are attached to the plates where a special adhesive coating holds them. 

Maintenance 

At regular intervals, determined by local dust conditions, the collector cells reach their dirt holding capacity. The Ionitron filter must then be cleaned, manually or automatically, by flushing the ionizer and collector cells with water and allowing too dry before a fresh coat of adhesive is applied. 

Washing Header 

The washing header supplied on automatic models ensures thorough washing through a system of nozzles mounted on the washing header. Driven by endless chain the header includes a separate set of nozzles for application of fresh adhesive. 

Performance 

The normal initial operating resistance of an Ionitron unit is 51Pa. at rated capacity. Units are available in sizes from 944 L/s up to 90,000 L/s air flow. Australian Standard AS1132 gives an efficiency of 87% to No.1 test dust.
