Abstract

The efficiency of the various electrostatic technologies of air purification, powder deposition or paint spraying is intimately related to the optimisation of the employed electrode configurations. The analysis of the electric field has already proven its utility in this respect. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that the boundary element method (BEM) is appropriate for the study of roll- and plate-type electrostatic separators, two groups of devices which are characterised by intricate electrode configurations. A BEM program, developed at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (USA) and provided with interactive data i
