Trion® Electrostatic Precipitators

Our Trion Electrostatic Precipitators offer additional filter choices to fit your needs in a one-stop-shop vendor option that saves shelf space, freight costs, and ordering time. With distributors cutting back on the amount of vendors carried, you can add filters to the many other IAQ products that we offer.


How Electrostatic Precipitators Work

Air is drawn into the unit to capture particles. The airborne particles pass through an electrostatic field and receive an ionised charge. The charged particles move into a collector, where each alternate plate is charged with the same polarity as the particles. This drives the particles to the second set of plates where an opposite charge attracts and collects the particles. The cleaned air is then exhausted.

Unlike media air cleaners that use replaceable filters that clog up when dirty, electrostatic precipitators contain permanent cells that can be washed, either manually or with an automatic wash system. The permanent cells, even when dirty, still operate at very low static resistances when compared to a media filter. This typically means motors are 1 to 2 sizes smaller, saving the operator energy costs, as well as the cost of disposing of dirty filters.

Electrostatic Precipitator Facts

  • HEPA-like efficiency is available.
  • Electrostatic Precipitators require the minimum amount of maintenance.
  • Constant and consistent airflow day after day.
  • Filtration components are cleanable, not disposable, which reduces the amount of landfill.
  • Systems with automatic wash and PLC's are available.
  • Life-cycle cost of an electrostatic precipitator is typically less than other filtration technologies.
