LONG-TERM CANDLE FILTER TESTS
Performer: Southern Company Services, Inc.
Project No: NT0000749
Project Scope and Technology Readiness Level
This work will enhance the understanding of filter performance and transfer this knowledge into improved filter elements for future applications. Specific objectives in support of this goal are to test and evaluate commercially available and newly developed filter elements and fail-safes for their particulate collection efficiency, process performance, mechanical integrity, corrosion behavior of metal filter media, and lifetime prediction.
The Technology Readiness Level (TRL) assessment identifies the current state of readiness of the key technologies being developed under the DOE’s Clean Coal Research Program. In FY 12, this project was assessed a TRL of 5.
The TRL assessment process and its results including definition and description of the levels may be found in the "2012 Technology Readiness Assessment-Analysis of Active Research Portfolio".
