Abstract One of the most frequently used methods to purify air contaminated by particles, in many industrial processes, is filter media. Although the performance of filter media is relatively well documented under standard conditions (humidity and ambient temperature), few studies are interested in the interaction between moisture and the deposition of particles collected. The proposed study aims to establish the performance of a fibrous media with aerosols composed of nanostructured solid…

Impact of Relative Humidity on HVAC Filters Loaded with Hygroscopic and Non-Hygroscopic Particles
The key characteristics of an air filter—flow resistance and filtration efficiency—are strongly affected by captured particles. The impact of exposing loaded heating, ventilating, and air
Influence of Humidity on Clogging of Flat and Pleated HEPA Filters
The influence of humidity on changes to the pressure drop of flat and pleated HEPA filters clogged by polydisperse hygroscopic and non-hygroscopic aerosols has been studied. For flat filters, the
Effects of relative humidity and particle type on the performance and service life of automobile cabin air filters
ABSTRACT Cabin air filters are the main barrier for protecting automobile passengers from on road particulate matter. There are many studies about the evaluation of their performance in terms of
Effect of Humidity and Particle Hygroscopicity on the Mass Loading Capacity of High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filters
The effect of humidity, particle hygroscopicity, and size on the mass loading capacity of glass fiber high efficiency particulate air filters was studied. Above the deliquescent point, the pressure
