Ceramic Filter Principles Of Operation
How it all works:
- The Element (1) hangs vertically from header plate (2) within the filter vessel. The header plate separates the filter's clean and dirty compartments.
- Hot Gas is drawn through the filter medium (3) from outside to inside.
- Particulates and dry scrubbing sorbents are collected on the outer surface (4) of each filter element. These consist of the PM10, PM 2.5 size ranges; these agglomerate.
- The particles are removed from the element by reverse jet cleaning (5). This reversal causes the accumulated solids to be detached from the outer surface of the ceramic filter elements.
- The particulates and spent dry-scrubbing sorbents are discharged through the hopper outlet (6) for collection and disposal.
- The filter body can be protected with insulation (7) and trace heated (8) to prevent the formation of the condensation when the equipment is not in use.
- Incoming gas stream (9) and sorbent (if required).
- Outgoing cleansed gas stream (10)
- Injection point for activated carbon and/or sodium bicarbonate.
