  • Format: Distance Learning

Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to compare different techniques of dust separation, such as gravity separators, impact separators, centrifugal separators, filtering separators, electrostatic precipitators and wash-separators, to use them correctly and to design them procedurally

Subject of course

Increasing technical demands, combined with a more stringent legislation in environmental protection have forced considerable improvement in the separation of fine particles from gases. In this lecture the basic dust properties in conection to their separation behaviour will explained. Further different technical possibilities for separation of fine dust particles from waste gases (cyclones, filtering dust separators, electrostatic precipitators, wet scrubbers) will be given.

Teaching methods

By discussion of case studies, the appropriate use of dust precipitators should be demonstrated.
