Abstract : An electrostatic high potential device which utilizes the generation of electrostatic charges on moving oil to produce a high potential difference on the order of thousands of volts. A metal encased ionizing device or charge generator with a system of passageways of dielectric material has an oil moving therethrough and against the dielectric material to cause a transfer of electric charges between the oil and passageway surfaces. The passageways act as baffles and provide a large amount of surface contact between the oil and dielectric material. The conductive housing of the ionizing device is grounded to draw off the charges on the dielectric material, and a pump circulates the charged oil from the ionizing device to a charge storage device of similar design. Electrodes in the charge storage device draw off the charges on the oil. (Author)
