The gas velocity is adjusted hourly based on concentration of the particulate matter found in the gaseous stream for instance when the particulate matter concentration increases the velocity is decreased to enhance efficiency. A controller is fitted to adjust the velocity when desired. It can also be configured so as to control regeneration of catalytic emission traps.
There is also the use of electrostatic precipitators where particulate matter is removed by use of electrodes. The dust is charged with negative corona and adheres to electrodes that are used to collect the dust and are usually positively charged, the particulate matter is removed by tapping the cathode by a hammering device (Wang et al, 2005). The temperatures of the electrostatic precipitators are adjusted time to time to enhance effectiveness.
