The paper gives results of a preliminary analysis of the economic feasibility of a pulse-jet-cleaned electrostatically augmented baghouse or fabric filter (ESFF). The ESFF pulse-jet baghouse, designed for a gas/cloth ratio of 2.4 m/min, would have a total annual cost that is 30% lower than that of a conventional pulse-jet baghouse designed for a gas/cloth ratio of 1.2 m/min. Evaluation of the economics of a reverse-air-cleaned ESFF baghouse is still underway, as are further pilot-plant and laboratory studies designed to elucidate the mechanism of ESFF.
