The report gives results of the fourth year of operation (ending October 1, 1981) of a fabric filter installed by Southwestern Public Service Co. on its Harrington Station Unit 2 coal-fired boiler in Amarillo, Texas. Project work during the fourth year concentrated on fabric studies. The 10-oz/sq yd fabrics of the 150 1/2 warp, 150 2/2T fill construction demonstrated superior performance over the most common 14-oz/sq yd constructions, regardless of coating. It was determined that improving cleaning by increasing shaking amplitude is more detrimental to baglife than increasing shaker frequency. Maintenance and operation observations continued, and the resolution of these types of problems became more efficient because of increased experience of maintenance personnel with baghouse-related problems.
