Effect of Fiberglass Fabric Structure on Filter Performance

Analyzes the effect of changes in fiberglass fabric structure on filtration efficiency and resistance of the filter medium to flow. Filtration velocities were varied from 2 ft./min. to 10 ft./min. Two commercial fabrics, one Dacron and one Fiberglass, were selected for study. Both are woven from yarns consisting of continuous strands or filaments and treated with silicone oils. Structure of these basic fabrics was altered by changing the number of filling yarns per inch of fabric ± 10% from the standard count. Results show that minor changes in structure produce a significant difference in filtration characteristics of the dust-fabric combination.
