  • Solid / gas separation with fabric filters

    A myriad of filter media are utilized today for separation of particulate matter in industrial gas filtration applications. These media range from single use (deposable) to semi-permanent media and include fiber, fabric, ceramic, membrane, metal mesh, and sintered metal media. Semi-permanent media are usually cleanable, either on or off-line, and are primarily intended for long-term (up to ...

  • Critical parameters in the production of ceramic pot filters for household water treatment in developing countries

    The need to improve the access to safe water is generally recognized for the benefit of public health in developing countries. This study's objective was to identify critical parameters which are essential for improving the performance of ceramic pot filters (CPFs) as a point-of-use water treatment system. Defining critical production parameters was also relevant to confirm that CPFs with ...

  • Case study - Organic particulate filtration

    Overview A food products company that mixes various types of waxes and other components to make the base for chewing gums was faced with the issue of cleaning up a slightly odorous, visible emission being exhausted from two of their process lines. The components of the emission were hot particles of chewing gum and some volatile organic compounds (VOC's). The particles would quickly clog ...

  • Case study - Filtration for Alcan (France) swarf recovery at an aluminium billet plant

    In 1998 this Glosfume ceramic filter system was originally installed at British Aluminium plant in the UK to filter oily fumes from an induction furnace smelting oily swarf recovered from billet sawing. The filter is injected with 2C talc before being recycled back to the inlet ducting. At a pre-set time, the talc is discharged to a collection drum and the cycle is repeated. During 2006 British ...

  • Case study - Smelting of Secondary Aluminium (UK)

    Filtration for induction smelting of aluminium scrap Coleshill Aluminium Ltd purchased their first ceramic filter from Glosfume in 1994. Since then, we've developed a close working relationship and over the past 18 years, Coleshill have purchased four filter units, most recently in 2005. During induction smelting, contaminated aluminium scrap is converted into ingots and the ...

  • Case study - OTMS Boxed Beef Incinerator (UK)

    Over Thirty Month Scheme (OTMS) 'Boxed Beef' incinerator. This installation involved replacement of a 3-metre ceramic element filter that suffered constant element breakages and inadequate SO2 removal due to a poorly designed filter and powder injection system. The client appointed W.S. Atkins to source a filter which had high efficiency particulate removal and effective dry ...

  • Basic Principles of Microfiltration

    Microfiltration can be defined as the separation of particles of one size from particles of another size in the range of approximately 0.01 µm through 20 µm. The fluid may be either a liquid or a gas. Microfiltration media are available in a wide variety of materials and methods of manufacture. They can be rated either 'absolute' or 'nominal' depending upon the percentage of capture of particles ...

  • Case study - Aluminium Scrap Decoating US Granules (USA) 2001

    HCl emissions reduced from 1000mg/Nm3 to 5mg/Nm3.  Process: To recover aluminium scrap from plastic foil. A Glosfume high temperature ceramic filter system replaced an existing bag filter that had suffered severe corrosion. This was due to being operated at low temperatures, combined with extremely high HCl levels, during aluminium scrap decoating. Lime injection ...

  • Upstream Particulate Removal for Rtos on Direct-Fired Osb Dryers – How much is enough?

    Abstract Since 1994 Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs) have been applied to direct wood-fired OSB dryers for the purpose of VOC abatement. In early direct wood-fired OSB dryer applications many OSB producers felt that upstream particulate control was not necessary. However, the ash from the combustion of wood waste created a host of new operational problems for the RTO systems. This paper ...
