Subway vehicle blowing dust removal generally has poor blowing operating conditions, serious environmental pollution and manual work intensity and other problems, which has long plagued the operation and use of the sector. With the development of society, the subway vehicle blowing dust removal device towards the direction of intelligent development, increasingly perfect. To date, many scholars and universities have conducted research on the subway vehicle blowing dust removal device, but lack of systematic summary. This paper summarizes the research results of subway vehicle blowing and dust removal devices in recent decades, analyzes and compares the advantages and shortcomings of various dust removal devices, and provides an outlook on their future development and research directions.
