The report describes the design and operation of a mobile fabric filter system, and gives results of a laboratory fabric filter investigation. The mobile system, constructed to study the effects of fabric filtration parameters when filtering an actual industrial effluent stream, was designed for mechanical shake, pulse jet, or reverse flow cleaning. The mobile system was field-tested at a secondary brass foundry, a hot mix asphalt plant, and a coal-fired utility boiler. Woven and felted Nomex and woven glass fabrics were tested. The three cleaning methods were used with appropriate fabrics and emission sources. Pressure drop and efficiency (both mass and particle size) data were collected. Selected aspects of pulse jet and mechanical shake cleaned fabric filters were investigated in the laboratory. The effects of bag fit, pulse supply pressure, and pulse type on filter pressure drop and effluent were investigated. The mechanical shake cleaning tests determined the source of dust emissions for a specific aerosol/fabric combination. Dust emissions resulted from direct penetration, seepage, dust shaken through the filter during cleaning, and dust (loosened during cleaning) that penetrated when air flow resumed.
