The most important considerations in choosing a fiber for filtration is the type of filtration and the environment in which filtration or dust collection will take place. The following should be taken into account:
- Type of Filtration: (a) Air or (b) Liquid
- Heat Resistance
- Chemical Resistance
- Physical Properties
Air Filtration - the most common objectives are purification (either incoming or outgoing) and recovery of a product. In some applications the two can be combined for beneficial results. Many installations made for purposes of air pollution control have resulted in the recovery of a usable product. For example, a smelting plant will recover valuable dust; a power plant collects fly ash, which is usable as an aggregate in concrete, etc.
Liquid Filtration - the three main objectives are refining a product, recovering a product and clarifying the filtrate. Filter cloth qualities for liquid filtration would include the ability to prevent passage of a solid material, allow an even flow of liquid, resist plugging, and ease of filter cake removal.
