bag house

When talking about "filtres à manche", the French can't see the forest for the trees. When they way "filtre à manche" it is unlikely that they mean an individual bag filter, but rather a whole lot of them in what in English we call a bag house.

Devices which use the same principal as a home vacuum cleaner filter bag. Typically it is a rectangular vessel with a number of tube-shaped filter bags through which the gas stream is pushed or pulled. Baghouses are quite effective on particles which are greater than one micron in size. Sub-micron particulate can quite easily plug (or blind) filter bags. When used on sub-micron particulate, some provision has to be made to prevent plugging. A typical method is to entrain larger "target particulate" in the gas stream to both attract and agglomerate the sub-micron particulate, and to bridge the passages in the filter bag to prevent plugging.
One negative inherent in the operation of a baghouse is its energy consumption; for similar cleaning limitations, a baghouse will typically require a pressure drop between ten and 25 times higher than an electrostatic precipitator.
