wet electrofilter, venturi scrubber

At present, Venturi scrubbers or wet electrofilters are used to clean the ... wet electrofilter EGM-3-5-50 to clean the HTE gas-air mixture from dust. ...

Venturi Scrubber
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
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.

Makes me think of an Italian girl a friend of mine used to go out with.
