The group of dust collection is one of the oldest technical groups in APPIE. This group has been playing an important role for the development of dust collection technologies in Japan, i.e. it has stimulated and supported the engineers engaged in business of dust collection by making the following opportunities; (1) meetings where ideas relating to dust collection is exchanged and discussed, (2) Collection, preparation and distribution of the latest overseas information of dust collection and (3) factory visits.
Current level of technology, trend and activities in future
(1) This group has been investigating problems of particle separation which is the most important part in the dust collection system．The investigation relating to nanotechnology and PM2.5 has been conducted in recent years. To expand the range of application of dust collection, the group intends to continue to play a leading role in the introduction of new technologies such as multifunctional technology.
(2) Most of group members are deeply interested in international standards for fabric of bag filter and dust collection system. Thus, activities of the group focus on contributing to the creation of such standards. Particularly, the group hopes establishing a Japan-led test method for evaluation of dust collection system by adopting the round-robin test.
The requests based on the perspective of users of dust collection systems have been actively incorporated into our activities in order to anticipate the needs of the group members.
(3) Based on the aforementioned knowledge, educational activities such as professional seminars and training courses for younger engineers are planned. Also, renewal of the bugs filter handbook is scheduled. The group continues to play an important role for human resource development and technical inheritance toward dust collection research progress in future.
