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… Expand

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 airExpand
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, theExpand
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 ofExpand
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 pressureExpand
Modelling the pressure drop across HEPA filters during cake filtration in the presence of humidity
The modelling of the variation in the pressure drop across a HEPA filter during cake filtration in the presence of humidity was studied. A semi-empirical model was developed that considers theExpand
Effect of relative humidity on loading characteristics of cellulose filter media by submicrometer potassium chloride, ammonium sulfate, and ammonium nitrate particles
Abstract This study aims to research the relative humidity (RH) effect of the cellulose filter media loading. The filter loading characteristics of test particles under various RHs (15%, 30%, 45%,Expand
Measurement and modeling of pressure drop of HEPA filters clogged with ultrafine particles
Abstract The harmlessness of nanometric aerosols is currently being called into question. Their massive production in industrial production processes or during combustion, whether deliberate orExpand
Clogging of fibrous filters by solid aerosol particles Experimental and modelling study
A fibrous filter is a common cleaning device often used to remove particles from industrial gas streams. The main question which often arises concerns the evolution of the pressure drop and theExpand
Impact of relative humidity on a nanostructured filter cake – Experimental and modelling approaches
Abstract In this paper, three different non-hygroscopic nanostructured powders were dispersed in dry air and filtered to create a nanostructured deposit. The relative humidity was then graduallyExpand
Loading characteristics of nanofiber coated air intake filter media by potassium chloride, ammonium sulfate, and ammonium nitrate fine particles and the comparison with conventional cellulose filter media
Abstract Air filters operate in versatile environments, such as different relative humidities (RH), temperatures. Those factors could affect the state of atmospheric hygroscopic salt pollutants,Expand
