Long Bag Filter, the dust collection technique, is selected as one of the top ten technique of 2017 by the Government Funded Research Center
The Long Bag Filter dust collector developed by Dr. Park Hyun-seol, Principal Researcher at Clean Fuels Laboratory in the Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER), was chosen as one of the top ten technique of 2017 by the Government Funded Research Center.
The Long Bag Filter dust collector is a bag filter dust collecting system tapped into combination type and it can reduce industrial dust emission by 10 per cent with the adoption of combination type of dust collecting system that effectively remove accumulated dust in a filter.
Compared to the previous dust collector, the Long Bag Filter, which can easily remove the accumulated dust from inside the filter, can be used longer than the past one and allows it work in a more stable manner. The new filter can be set up on only less than half-size of the previous dust collector.
KIER expects that the technique will play a pivotal role in resolving particulate matter related problems in Korea and will be applied to the establishment and utilization of environmental policies.
Development of the Long Bag Filter dust collector is sponsored by the Ministry of Environment under the Environmental industry advanced technology development business plan and the collector was chosen as one of the research project of dust collection/reduction section in the National Strategic Project on PM2.5 Pollution in Korea supported by the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Science and ICT, and the Ministry of Health and welfare.
