A bag filter is a technological device that enables the commercial industries to keep a check on air pollution by separating the gas-solid mixture through the filtration process and trapping the air pollutants. It can filter large volumes of high viscosity liquids and gases. The separation of the particles usually occur on the internal surface of the filter but can also occur on the external surface depending upon the industrial application. Moreover, bag filters are sediment filters consisting of small permeable pores having pore size 1-200 micron and works on the principle of microfiltration. The emergence of bag filters have addressed the air pollution issues faced by industrial organizations. They keep the quality of air within compliance levels set by regulatory bodies. Bag filters can deal with larger air volumes of dust and have high efficiency for dust removal. In addition properties like equipment resistance and long service life further contributes to the technical performance of these filters. Nowadays bag filters are preferred over electrostatic precipitators due to high efficiency and cost effectiveness.
The increase in number of coal fired plants, high demand from different end user industries and rising awareness regarding airborne infections are major drivers of the bag filter market. Bag filters are used in commercial industries as an equipment that could control emission of particulates to comply with government regulation. Asia-Pacific will register the fastest growth in this market due to urbanization activities. In Asia-Pacific region, China is a big potential market for bag filters as it has heavy industrial base coupled with environmental problems related to air pollution and global warming. Bag filters cannot be used with gases which have high moisture content and require dry compressed air for their working. Urbanization and industrialization activities in Asia-Pacific region gives scope for further growth of the market.
