This paper reviews the properties of high-temperature ceramic fibers and relates why strength, thermal shock resistance, chemical inertness, and high-temperature capability are important properties for high-temperature filter media. The use of candle filters, fabric filters, and composite filters will be discussed for removal of particulates from hot gas streams in electrical power generation systems, metal refining, chemical processing, and Diesel engine exhaust applications.
