  2. Electrostatic precipitation: Separation of particles or droplets suspended in a gas or air. A large potential difference (\(12\) to \(30\ \text{kV}\) dc) is required between the spaced electrodes in the precipitator. The charged particles are attracted to an electrode of opposite charge and collected.
