  • Removal of phosphorus using suspended reactive filters (SRFs) – efficiency and potential applications

    The removal of phosphorus (P) from agricultural runoff is essential to reduce the threat of eutrophication in bodies of water. In this study, an alternative method of applying P reactive materials (RMs) in the form of suspended reactive filters (SRFs) is presented. The SRF method enables P which has already entered a body of water to be caught. In this study, an autoclaved aerated concrete ...

  • Advantages of cleaning without a venturi in baghouse collectors

    ABSTRACT: Background The cleaning cycle is the most important part of the dust collector because it controls efficiency and media life. In order to clean a row of bags in a reverse pulse jet baghouse first the flow of filtered air must be momentarily stopped and then back flushed or “induce” air to knock the dust cake off the outside of the filter media. A venturi at the top of the ...
