Reduced emissions by optimizing the ­efficiency of filter bags

Reliable dedusting with fabric filters makes a significant contribution to improve the environmental conditions. Today, the industrial dust has a significant importance. Modern technologies for efficient dust removal are a hot topic due to environmental pollution, climate change, increasing energy consumption and the conservation of resources of non-renewable raw materials.

1 Introduction

It is a fact that with NESHAP, the new environmental rules, life will be changing for almost all cement plant operators in the USA and perhaps also around the world. Environmental compliance issues may become tougher to achieve. As a first step this may also be an opportunity to look at fixing what you have instead of immediately planning on replacing the dust control units with more expensive equipment.

One way of improving existing dust control units is to operate the cement kiln and all associated equipment with optimized parameters – making the kiln dust control units function...
