An electrostatic precipitator (ESP) has such advantages as high collection efficiency of high concentration particles and low pressure loss. However, it can cause the re-entrainment phenomenon, and the hole-type ESP is considered to suppress this phenomenon. The authors developed a parallel-plate hole-type ESP after investigating the characteristics of collection efficiency with the hole-type electrode having a double-cylinder. In this study, the authors examined the right conditions for particle collection and electrode configuration. In the case of large particles, the collection efficiency decreased when the discharge current increased. However, with respect to the particle size of 300nm or less, the greater collection efficiency was achieved when the discharge current increased. The collection efficiency was improved by moving the position of the needle electrode toward the ESP outlet. The collection efficiency also reached the highest point when the hole diameter was 5mm.
