The combustion of pulverized coal inevitably produces dust and other harmful substances. For these reasons, the optimization of de-dusting procedure and equipments is an aspect of crucial importance towards the final goal of making this source of energy more sustainable. In the present work, the behaviour of a “bag filter” is simulated using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). More specifically, three possible approaches are used, differing with respect to the level of fidelity and the partial utilization of empirical data. The outcome of these simulations is mutually compared and finally discussed critically in the light of available experimental results.
