Abstract Ceramic filters are quite an efficient component for hot gas filtration due to their high collection efficiency and high thermal durability. Among the various steps to fabricate a ceramic filter, sintering is one of the most important processes. In this study, disk-type ceramic filters were prepared at various sintering temperatures, and the effect of sintering temperature on physical/chemical properties and filtration performance were investigated. We found that the sintering temperature strongly influenced the physical and chemical properties as well as the filtration performance of a ceramic filter. The adhesive force among powders and the oxidation degree of Si species are more important parameters to determine the mechanical strength of a ceramic filter than other physical properties. Filters prepared at sintering temperatures lower than 1450°C have low mechanical strength due to insufficient binding energy among powders, and filters prepared at sintering temperatures higher than 1500°C also have low mechanical strength due to the oxidation of SiC to SiO2. However, ceramic filters sintered at 1350°C and 1400°C achieve a better filter quality factor than other filters, even though they have lower mechanical strength. Therefore, both mechanical strength and filter quality factor should be considered to choose a better ceramic filter.
