  • Testing is performed at different flow rates
  • Integration of new batch data from individual batches into

data of all previous batches

  • Development of data for different sampling scenarios
  • Determination of pressure drop data vs. flow rate for each

type of adsorbent material

  • Creation of graphical representation of collection efficiency vs. flow data and determination of mathematical equations that represent efficiency vs. flow relationship

Activated Carbon Particulate Selector

To determine approximate mesh size of an activated carbon sample, compare representative particles of the largest and smallest size to the printed solid circles. Mesh size is given in two numbers, e.g., "6x10." The first number is a mesh slightly larger than the largest representative particle, and the second is a mesh slightly smaller than the smallest particle. Normal manufacturing tolerances allow for a few non- representative particles in each sample.
