    Probably very similar to choosing any other filter- particle size, flow rate, required filter efficiency, etc.

    Step 1 is easier though, why do you want an electrostatic filter?

    But since it uses ionization which means it will use a relatively high amount amount of energy (correct me if i'm wrong).... dun u need to c if it is power efficient as well (power consumption) ?
