The report gives results of a survey of the literature on performance models for pulse-cleaned fabric filters. Each model is evaluated for its ability to predict average pressure drop from pilot plant data. The best model is chosen and used, in conjunction with pressure drop reduction data from an electrostatically stimulated fabric filter (ESFF) pilot plant, to produce a model of ESFF performance. The accuracy of the models is limited by their primitive nature and the size of the pulse-jet performance data base. Where the baghouse, dust, and fabric to be modeled are very similar to the pilot plant from which the model was developed, the model should perform adequately for comparison between ESFF and non-ESFF baghouses. Published correlations relating equipment size and cost are used in a model for predicting the capital and operating costs of conventional pulse-jet baghouses.
