The first commercial application of electrostatic precipitation was that installed at the lead smelter of Parker, Walker and Co. at Baguilt in North Wales. This plant resulted from Lodge's investigations and findings from his work at Liver pool University in 1884. This repeated in more detail earlier work by Holfeld (1824) and Guitard (1850) when it was found that particles of smoke could be precipitated from a smoke filled vessel by applying a charge to the particles by means of a Voss or Wimshurst electrostatic generator.
