Filtration is one of the methods used to control dust emission pollution in many industries. There are many types of filtration techniques available from simple to more complicated filtration systems. Fabric type filtration houses a number of fabric bags placed in a single or multiple compartments as depicted in Figure 1. This system is known as the most efficient dust emission control with removal efficiency of 99.9+%. It can handle acid mist, organics and metallic compounds in a single unit with the support of flue gas cleaning agents.
