Electrostatic precipitator parts consist of some equipment, one of them is dust hopper. Electrostatic precipitator has similar function like bag house filter and muti cyclone. Electrostatic precipitator as filter flue gas boiler has many advantages than other equipment. But this equipment is more expensive than baghouse and muti cyclone.
Hopper in the electrostatic precipitator is the shelter of dust particles or disposal of dirt particles. In one unit electrostatic precipitator is usually installed three dust hoppers. Sensor electrode phone is used to determine amount of dust particle in each hopper. In the tank there is air lock system which is driven by motor which is equipped with gears. Placement of air lock system as shown in Figure 2, there is reservoir of dust (dust hopper and fly ash bin.
