Introduction Electrostatic precipitators are dust collecting devices that uses electrostatic forces. They can be big machines that cleans out the dirty substances we breathe in. It can also be something very simple. For example, air fresheners that we use in our daily lives.

How does it work? Dirty air passes through a wall into a highly negatively charged voltage, called an electrode. When the dirty air passes through the negatively charged electrode, the dirty substances becomes negatively charged. Then, the air goes through a highly positively charged electrode. The positive electrode are metals that are placed horizontally. The dirty substances stick to the positive electrode because they are negatively charged. Finally the newly cleaned air passes out the final wall and becomes the air we breathe.

What are they used for? Electrostatic precipitators are used to clean dirty substances out of our air. There are big machines that do that. Some examples of electrostatic precipitators are, air vents and air fresheners.

Review In my opinion, I think that electrostatic precipitators are very important in our world. I think this because if the air breathe in was dirty all the time, we would get sick more often and we would be a lot more unhealthy. The air would be way more polluted then how it is now. Therefore, electrostatic precipitators are very important in today’s society.
