Fabric filter is capable of providing high collection efficiencies for particles as small as 0.5um and will remove a substantial quantity of particles as small as 0.01um. There are two major categories of fabric filters: inside bag collectors and outside bag collectors. This is one of the most common techniques to collect PM from industrial waste gases. They are often used in indoor air ventilation systems and to control particles from industrial gas streams. There are three varieties of fabric filters, which include reverse-air, shake/deflate and pulsejet units. They are distinguished by the cleaning mechanism and by the air-to-cloth value (A/C).
A fabric softener is used to prevent static cling and makes the fabric softer. It is also called as fabric conditioner. The use of fabric softener may however reduce the water absorption capabilities of the fabric, and is contra-indicated in some articles like microfibre textiles. For best results, un-diluted fabric softener should not be poured directly onto clothes. Another form of fabric softener is in the form of dryer sheets, which are added to clothing in the tumble dryer to soften the fabrics and prevent static. Dryer sheets, or dryer anticling strips, can also be used to keep clothes smelling good while being stored.which are added to clothing in the tumble dryer to soften the fabrics and prevent static.
