Separation of erosive and corrosive components from process fluid streams in industrial processes is essential to protect equipment and environment. Failure of any components of the separation device could damage the equipment, processes or environment. The financial losses due to unscheduled shut downs caused by such failures could be enormous. These losses could be avoided if reliable separation devices are developed. Significant research efforts have been invested across the world to develop more robust and reliable separation systems. This paper reviews some of the latest novel developments including patents in the gas cleaning area with particular emphasis on gas-solid separation technologies.

Keywords: Filtration, particle removal, solid-fluid separation
