Power generation is one of the primary applications for hot-gas filtration

Hot gas filtration is a process utilized to remove particulate in high temperature gas streams. Depending on the process, the temperature ranges can very between 250 C to 1,000 C. The lower range can be serviced by synthetic fabric filters in the form of a bag and cage or pleated elements, whereas higher temperatures require …

People wearing facemasks

Standardized facemasks typically fall into one of two categories — surgical or respirator. Both variants are designed to offer various levels of protection against the transmission of bacteria and other particulates. World facemask guidelines are about science, but go beyond that. The science is defined by test methods that each region/country espouses. As a rule …

Facemasks used during COVID-19

There are many different facemasks in the market today – from do-it-yourself cut and sew barrier masks to highly engineered products that require testing and certification to be used. In the age of COVID-19, the term “facemask” is, in some cases, being used generically, when there are different types of facemasks with varying degrees of …

AHR Expo focus on indoor air quality (IAQ)

I made the trip to Orlando in February for the 2020 AHR Expo. I traveled to this event with the objective of determining the level of interest in an INDA (Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry)-sponsored Indoor Air Quality coalition. Walking the show allowed me to meet in person with potential IAQ coalition members from …

The main filter mechanisms of fiber material. (B) Filtration efficiency for particles with different diameters. (C) The main filtration effect based on particle size.

There are three primary property considerations of fibers for filtration performance — the choice of fibers, the process of producing the media and the final application.       When it comes to performance, the fundamental fiber properties are those that are designed to optimize volume, air permeability, and the pore size of the material.  …
