This technical paper examines the various aspects of hot gas filter station design that ultimately affect both initial and operational costs. Process conditions such as temperature and pressure, and design constraints such as face velocity, are discussed with respect to their bearing on filter station costs. More subtle parameters, such as pulse gas cleaning requirements and filter element geometry, also directly impact filter design and hence, cost. As all of the information presented is based upon actual filter applications, it will provide useful insight for those involved in filter designing and recommendations.
