Electrostatic Dust Collection for Nanotechnologies
In nanotechnology, tiny particles (nános, Greek for "dwarf”) are used. These particles have dimensions ranging from a single atom to around a hundred nanometres in diameter. Due to this small size, nanomaterial properties are strongly influenced by their large surface area. Desired effects can be achieved with this, such as the well-known lotus effect, or the vast current-carrying capacity of carbon nanotubes.
However, the uncontrolled release of fine dust or nanoparticles can also be hazardous. For this reason it is necessary to protect human health and the environment from adverse contact with these materials. For waste air purification in nanoparticle-handling plants, DAS Environmental Expert GmbH therefore offers the electrostatic dust collectors in the EDC product line.
