The article focuses on the use of wet electrostatic precipitator (WESP) in removing acid mists, fine particulates, and other contaminants from gas stream. It states that a good and correctly operated WESP technology is incorporated following the gas scrubbers which can achieve collection efficiencies compared to other equipment. It also explores the features and benefits of WESPs in processing gas streams.
