Description

The initial round of Advanced ElectroCore performance tests was conducted at what LSR believed to be the best test condition. Most of the data were taken with the unit running at a specific separating area (SSA) of 100 ft{sup 2}/kacfm and a bleed flow ratio of 10 percent. Some data were taken with the separator electrode energized and some without energization. Analysis of the data from the first two set of tests showed that there was probably an optimum electrode voltage to produce a maximum efficiency. One important objective of the third set of tests was to find out what ... continued below

Description

The initial round of Advanced ElectroCore performance tests was conducted at what LSR believed to be the best test condition. Most of the data were taken with the unit running at a specific separating area (SSA) of 100 ft{sup 2}/kacfm and a bleed flow ratio of 10 percent. Some data were taken with the separator electrode energized and some without energization. Analysis of the data from the first two set of tests showed that there was probably an optimum electrode voltage to produce a maximum efficiency. One important objective of the third set of tests was to find out what separator electrode voltage produced the highest efficiency. A second objective of the test was to measure how the efficiency changed with changing SSA. The third objective was to determine if reducing the gas residence time in the precharger would reduce the efficiency. The results show that a maximum efficiency is achieved at a moderate separator electrode voltage. The initial assumption that the particle separation efficiency would increase with increasing voltage turned out to be incorrect. The maximum efficiency was achieved at a voltage much lower than the maximum voltage achieved. The second conclusion is that increases in SSA from 100 ft{sup 2}/kacfm result initially in lower efficiency then again in higher efficiency with further increases in SSA. The third conclusion is that a reduction in residence time within the precharger does not result in lower particle separation efficiency indicating that it may be practical to try to reduce the size of the precharger.
