The paper gives results of an investigation of the concept of electrostatic stimulation of fabric filtration (ESFF) on a slipstream of a pulverized-coal-fired boiler using reverse-air-cleaned woven fiberglass filter bags. Operation was demonstrated using ESFF at a glass-to-cloth ratio (G/C) of 6. An un-electrified control house was operated simultaneously at a G/C of 3. Under these conditions, the ESFF house maintained a pressure drop equal to or less than that of the control baghouse. In addition to reducing the filter cake pressure drop, ESFF was observed to apparently have long term benefits in preventing irremovable dust buildup in the fabric.
