Air Filtration Media-Evalucrtions of Fiber-Shedding Characteristics Under Laboratory Conditions and in Commercial Installations

  title={Air Filtration Media-Evalucrtions of Fiber-Shedding Characteristics Under Laboratory Conditions and in Commercial Installations},
  author={M. W. Shumate and J. Wilhelm},
Quantitative methods were developed to measure thejibershedding characteristics of various types of commercially available airfiltration media. One method was developed and used to perform long-term monitoring of commercial installations. The other method was designed to measure the extent of fiber shedding under scientifically controlled laboratory conditions. Similar results were obtained using either test method. Test results showed that all media evaluated shed a minimal amount of fiber… Expand
