Electrostatic charge generation occurs in fluid systems mainly as a result of interaction between the fluid and the filtration media. The interaction causes charge separation between the filtration medium and the fluid, with the fluid oppositely charged to the filtration medium. The magnitude of charge generated depends on many interrelated factors, including the nature of the filter material and the fluid, fluid velocity, viscosity, conductivity and the contact area.
