The report gives results of a series of sensitivity tests of a GCA fabric filter model, as a precursor to further laboratory and/or field tests. Preliminary tests had shown good agreement with field data. However, the apparent agreement between predicted and actual values was based on limited comparisons: validation was carried out without regard to optimization of the data inputs selected by the filter users or manufactures. The sensitivity tests involved introducing into the model several hypothetical data inputs that reflect the expected ranges in the principal filter system variables. Such factors as air/cloth ratio, cleaning frequency, amount of cleaning, specific resistence coefficient K2, the number of compartments, and inlet concentration were examined in various permutations. A key objective of the tests was to determine the variables that require the greatest accuracy in estimation based on their overall impact on model output. For K2 variations, the system resistance and emission properties showed little change; but the cleaning requirement changed drastically. On the other hand, considerable difference in outlet dust concentration was indicated when the degree of fabric cleaning was varied. To make the findings more useful to persons assessing the probable success of proposed or existing filter systems, much of the data output is presented in graphs or charts.
