The report gives results of an experimental study to optimize control of emissions of asbestos fibers using a baghouse. Baghouse operating parameters found to be statistically significant in reducing asbestos emissions were: bag fabric, waste type, air-to-cloth ratio, relative humidity, period between shakes and duration of shaking, and shaking amplitude. Values of these operating parameters are recommended for industry usage to significantly reduce outlet concentrations of asbestos. These operating conditions resulted in pressure drops across the fabric filter that were quite reasonable. The most economical alternatives of cotton sateen bags, high air-to-cloth ratio, and low pressure drop operating conditions were found to be among the most significant in reducing asbestos emissions. Among the recommendations are: an air-to-cloth ratio of 1.22 cu m/min/sq m (4.0 cfm/sq ft), a combination of period between shakes of 120 min with a shaking duration of 20 sec, and a shaking amplitude of 3.500 cm.
