Baghouse Filtration for Dust Collection and Air Pollution Control
In Baghouse Filtration for Dust Collection and Air Pollution Control, you'll learn ...
- Various types of dust collectors
- Design guidelines for collection hoods and ductwork
- Design guidelines for collection hoppers and fans
- Design guidelines to prevent baghouse explosions and fires
Baghouse filters are commonly used to capture dust and airborne particulate emissions from industrial processes like cement, metal, chemical, pharmaceutical, printing, woodwork, food processing, construction, etc. Industry-specific state OSHA regulations and EPA require companies to hold their facilities to strict standards for indoor air quality and put limits on emissions of dust, smoke, and fumes into the atmosphere. Baghouse type dust collectors are by far the most common type of air pollution control equipment that plays a crucial role in helping companies meet these requirements and improve both indoor and outdoor environments by capturing a high percentage of the particles emitted by industrial processes.
The design of an industrial baghouse involves consideration of many factors including space restriction, cleaning method, fabric construction, fiber, air-to-cloth ratio, and many construction details such as inlet location, hopper design, and dust discharge devices.
This course will cover the most crucial factors to select the right type of dust collector for your application. The target audience for this course is electrical, mechanical & environmental engineers, plant layout designers, health & safety personnel, and operations, maintenance and facilities personnel responsible for industrial processes and infrastructure.
For note, this course will be dedicated primarily to fabric dust collector designs and not include other collectors like wet scrubbers or electrostatic precipitator dust collectors.
