Gas cleaning with pulse-jet filters: Emission sources and dust abatement strategies

Prof. G. Kasper*, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany

Baghouse filters have traditionally been very effective in maintaining low dust emissions from industrial sources. The trend toward tighter and carefully monitored specifications continues however, in order to meet modern ambient air quality standards. Moreover, these standards are particle size specific and based on inhalable and respirable dust concentrations (PM10, PM2.5). The technology is therefore assessed with regard to options for lowering emission levels, such as tighter filter media, better filter houses, or smarter ways of operating them. Much of the underlying research was done in cooperation with the European Consortium on Filtration Technology in Karlsruhe...
