Electrostatic Precipitator Design, Construction, Maintenance, and Repair

With more than 1,500 installations worldwide, SouthernField—Environmental Elements (EEC) is the global technology leader in dry and wet electrostatic precipitators. Our state-of-the-art designs maximize durability and performance.

Electrostatic Precipitator Design

We proudly use Rigitrode® discharge electrodes, Modulok™ collecting plates, Opti-Rap™ rapping systems, and DOCIV™ microprocessor-based automatic voltage controls to provide unsurpassed efficiency and emissions performance.

RIGITRODE® Discharge Electrodes

RIGITRODE® discharge electrodes demonstrate excellent performance characteristics over a wide variety of applications. The electrode is fabricated from tubing with uniformly spaced corona studs welded along the length of the electrode to optimize the voltage/current relationship required for each application. The system is assembled into the precipitator as a rigid structural matrix and has sufficient stiffness to resist displacement due to electrical and lateral forces resulting from over-full hoppers.

MODULOK™ Collecting Electrode

The MODULOK™ collecting electrode is designed for precise plate alignment and structural integrity while providing an excellent rapping response to dislodge collected particulate. It has demonstrated superior rapping energy transmission and cleanability under a full range of plate heights.  The plate is fabricated from a series of roll-formed modules with interlocking edges that snap securely together for a strong mechanical bond. The design requires no field assembly and prevents deformation and oil-canning, which can occur when individual panels are welded together.

Opti-Rap™ Rapping Systems

We offer a variety of rapping system options from Opti-Rap™. The entire rapping system is located outside the gas stream and can achieve plate acceleration over 200g.

DOCIV™ Automatic Voltage Controls

We also offer an array of microprocessor-based controls for precipitator systems. The DOCIV™ automatic voltage power controller with Mid Frequency Upgrade is the latest in performance and reliability.

Electrostatic Precipitator Construction

SouthernField—Environmental Elements (EEC) builds our custom electrostatic precipitator designs on site. Hot work and rigging in confined spaces with fall protection make precipitator work uniquely challenging. We prioritize excellence and safety as we deliver your project on time and on budget.

Electrostatic Precipitator Inspection and Maintenance

SouthernField—EEC provides electrostatic precipitator inspection and maintenance services. We can perform internal rebuilds to extend precipitator life and increase efficiency, delaying the need to invest in a new precipitator. 

Our skilled field service inspectors have experience working on industrial equipment, including electrostatic precipitators. They understand all the steps in the process and are ready to relay their expertise directly to your project. From working with individual mill personnel during the outage to providing detailed reports specifying exact locations of repairs and replacements, our FSIs can do it all.

  • Mechanical Inspection
  • Electrical Inspection
  • Drag Alignment
  • T/R Oil Sampling
  • Controls Upgrades
  • Controls/Rapper Tuning
  • Equipment Evaluation/Upgrade
  • Comprehensive Reporting
  • Phone Support
  • Emergency Service

Our FSIs work closely with our experienced supervisors and crews to ensure your equipment is repaired correctly, safely, and fast. Our project managers, engineers, and inspectors work hard to complete quality control, scheduling, and punch lists to ensure project success within the scope of your planned outage.

SouthernField— EEC completes a high level of on-site quality control measures and provides accountability for all services provided.
