A particulate air filter is a device composed of fibrous materials which removes solid particulates such as dust, pollen, mould, and bacteria from the air. A chemical air filter consists of an absorbent or catalyst for the removal of airborne molecular contaminants such as volatile organic compounds or ozone. Polyamide is a macromolecule with repeating units linked by amide bonds. Polyamides occur both naturally and artificially. Synthetic polyamides are commonly used in textiles, automotive applications, carpets and sportswear due to their high durability and strength. Nanofibers with smaller thickness and higher surface area than regular fibers, have enormous applications in filtration. Electrospinning (also called electrostatic fiber spinning) has been one of the promising processes to produce continuous nano-scale fibers from both synthetic and natural polymers.
The air filter has various applications. This product is particularly used for turbine inlet air filtration.
This product is a turbine inlet air filter containing polyamide (PA) nanofiber with the average thickness of 80 nm. Nanofiber addition increases the filtration efficiency dramatically.
Nanofibers due to large surface area, high length to width ratio with low density causes great particle collection during the cleaning process leading to increase in the filtration efficiency. The mechanism is that the thin layer of nanofiber web forms a barrier for particles while allowing the air to “slip” through the large volume of small pores. The large surface area of the nanofibers traps smaller particles, while air slips through the particles and filter medium.
Manual is available in the box. Keep the product away from moisture and prevent product damage.
