Hot Gas Filtration
The main objective of this project is to provide a fundamental understanding of transport
and deposition of ash particles in hot-gas cleanup filter vessels. One main goal is to develop
the needed tools for optimal design of hot-gas filtration systems to avoid filter-ash bridging.
The specific objectives are:
- To provide a fundamental understanding of particle transport and deposition mechanisms,
in hot-gas cleanup filter vessels.
- To develop a scientific basis for the mechanisms of ash bridging in hot-gas filtration systems.
- To provide a set of computer simulations for the Wilsonville demonstration-scale hot-gas filter systems
- To develop guidelines for performance improvement of hot-gas filter systems and for avoiding ash bridging.
