Pulse Jet Fabric Filters / Baghouses

B&W provides cost-effective control of particulate emissions with our proven pulse jet fabric filter (baghouse) technology. Our strong history of industrial fabric filters dates back to the 1930s.

Through our innovative technologies, we have provided some of the largest and lowest emission fabric filters in the world for a variety of industries including steam generating boilers that utilize a variety of fossil and biomass-based fuels, waste-to-energy, steel, cement and incineration.

B&W’s pulse jet fabric filters feature design innovations that provide benefits not available from other suppliers, such as:

  • Long bag technology
  • Integral gas and dust distribution devices
  • Enhanced pulse system design
  • Online maintenance access
  • Various roof configurations
  • Design for constructability and modularization
  • Optional bypass configuration

Our fabric filters offer high particulate removal efficiencies, reduced maintenance costs, and reduced operating costs. Integrating fabric filters with our sorbent injection and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) technologies also provides high removal efficiencies of hazardous air pollutants in a variety of applications. It can also be used with an electrostatic precipitator(ESP) for greater mercury (Hg) control.

Project / Case Feature Item

An electrostatic precipitator is being converted to B&W fabric filter technology at Eskom’s Tutuka Power Station in South Africa. Read about the project goals and features in this technical paper presented at Power-Gen Africa in July 2016.
