TESTS OF HIGH-EFFICIENCY FILTERS AND FILTER INSTALLATIONS AT ORNL

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

High-efficiency filters are used in air-handling systems as the primary means of minimizing the amount of radioactive particulate matter released to the atmosphere. The filtration efficiency is successfully measured in situ using an aerosol of dioctyl-phthalate and a forward light scattering photometer. Tests are made to determine the linearity of the Naval Research Laboratory type photometer, the precision of filter efficiency determinations, the effect of prolonged exposure to aerosol on filtration efficiency, and the effect of airflow rate on the efficiency of both efficient and defective filters.
