French term or phrase:« venturi électrofiltrants »
une séparation des aérosols et poussières restantes par un groupe de modules à venturi électrofiltrant
a filtrant or electrofiltrant is not a hole. It is a particle or droplet (produced by venturi effect in this case) which is electrically charged to increase the amount of crap it can extract from the air.

A type of wet scrubber that is usually highly efficient but requires a large amount of energy to operate. (Wet scrubbers are air pollution control devices.) In venturi scrubbers, a scrubbing liquid is introduced into the gas stream, which then passes through a contracted area of the scrubber at a high velocity creating a high dispersion of fine droplets. These fine droplets capture the gaseous and particulate pollutants www.epa.gov/eogapti1/glossary/index.htm
An electrostatic precipitator removes particulate from gaseous emissions. The basic principles of electrostatic precipitation are: a high voltage current is induced to charge the particles in the gas to be treated; an electric field is created between the negative and positive electrodes, attracting the negatively charged particulate to the positively charged collector plates; the particulate is then removed by devices that either shake the plates or run water over them. http://www.incineration.info/glossary/
Makes me think of an Italian girl a friend of mine used to go out with.
