  • Why choose an electrostatic, washable air filter?

    When deciding what type of air conditioner or furnace filter to use, you should keep two things in mind: Airflow and Efficiency. In order to work at its optimum level, the a/c or heating unit requires no restriction to air flow. You should choose a filter that has the least effect on airflow, but removes the most dust from the air. ACI’s electrostatic air filters allow the air conditioning ...

  • Wet electrostatic precipitators: A preferred technology for emission control

    The basic science behind electrostatic precipitators is as familiar and as simple as static cling. But today, this elemental force has been harnessed to a technology that is helping to remove millions of tons of toxic chemicals from our atmosphere; saving billions of dollars annually in pollution-related physical damage; and averting costly impacts on health and mortality rates for millions of ...

  • Non-woven electrostatic media for chromatographic separation of biological particles

    The filtration and separation of biological particles has been estimated as 40% of the cost in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. Liquid chromatography that is the principal method for separating biological particles uses a permanent phase of ultrafine adsorbent particles such as porous silica or resin spheres with particle sizes down to about 1 micron. Speed and resolution are two competing ...

  • Microbial reduction efficiencies of filtration, electrostatic polarization, and UV components of a Germicidal Air Cleaning System

    Abstract: This study determined the effectiveness of components of a germicidal air-cleaning system involving filtration, electrostatic polarization, and UV light on the reduction of airborne bacteria and molds. The filter alone, filter and electrostatic polarization combined, and the filter, electrostatic polarization, and UV light were found to be effective (P < 0.05) in reducing a given ...

  • High efficient cyclone systems with electrostatic recirculation for particulate matter (PM) emission control

    The development of new optimized dedusting systems has particular and increasing relevance for atmospheric particulate emission control. Indeed, traditional "particulatetraps" present several disadvantages that foster the search for alternative solutions. Industrial cyclones are, for their robust construction, absence of moving parts and general application, an appropriate technology for emission ...

  • High-Tech Filters

    The current economic situation of the cement industry creates sensitivity regarding off-times and process stability. More stringent air-pollution laws, especially when using waste-derived fuels, are drawing more attention to the off-gas cleaning facilities, usually bag filters. This article does not deal with electrostatic precipitators - as even they have well known disadvantages. By using more ...

    Maguin has developed the Cercat filter for high temperature air pollution control. In this article, David Gambier and Hélène Real outline the technology, as well as installations planned for 2009. Maguin has been present in the waste thermal treatment field since the 1970s. The company’s knowledge has been built through the turnkey supply of thermal treatment units for different kinds of products ...

  • Can protective garments be wearable filters?

    Protective garments for medical, civilian safety and military applications range from disposable lightweight fabrics to multilayered fabrics and laminated barrier materials, depending upon the nature of the contamination that threatens the wearer. Usually, only full barrier garments, such as the Level A liquid splash protective garments provide full protection from aerosols, and this is due to ...

  • Cigarette smoke: size distribution and effects on filters

    Cigarette smoke is an important aerosol in the air filtration industry and research. It is an unwanted aerosol and therefore there are many applications for air filtration (ex. cigarette filters, residential and commercial ventilation filters, home air cleaners). Cigarette smoke is especially important to air filter performance for several reasons. First, the size of cigarette smoke particles ...

  • How do oil mist collectors work? Comparing the different technologies, part II

    In our previous article about oil mist collector technology, we discussed the pros and cons of centrifugal mist collectors and filter-based mist collectors. Today, we look at the other two most common methods of getting oil mist out of the air. Electrostatic Precipitator Mist Collectors An electrostatic precipitator uses ...

  • Suffer from Allergies or Asthma?

    The “ULTRA” washable air filters have an antimicrobial protection that will not allow bacteria, fungi or mold to grow on the filter surface. The antimicrobial protection is not a coating and is not sprayed on. It is a safe and effective antimicrobial agent processed directly into the electrostatic fiber media, rendering it as permanent as the filter itself. The University of ...
