A novel method to investigate detachment of particulate structures from an elastic single fiber at low gas flow velocities

Poggemann, Lukas; Meyer, Jörg; Dittler, Achim

The detachment of particle structures from a stiff single fiber exposed to an airflow has been investigated by (Jankowska et al., 2000; Larsen, 1958; Löffler, 1972; Przekop et al., 2004; Qian et al., 1997; Zoller et al., 2020). In order to detach particle piles from a stiff single fiber, airflow velocities above 1.2 m/s are required. While these values are well above typical operational parameter for depth filters, a shift toward lower velocities for detachment would offer both up-and downside for filter operation. One possible application for controlled structure detachment from a filter fiber at lower velocities would be a shift of separated particulate structures from the upper layers of depth filter into lower regions. The result would be additional void space from particle deposition. Currently there is no knowledge available, if fiber stretching could enable such detachment of particle structure fragments at an operation airflow velocity below 1 m/s. It is assumed that fiber stretching might introduce shear and tensile stress to the particulate structures. That may lead to first cracks and promote final detachment. This study examines the behavior of particle structure fragments on an elastic single fiber for the first time. ... mehr
