Flow Rate and Throughput are two important related measures of filter media and device performance. there are five mechanism by which an aerosol particle can be deposited on a filter media. Because of the difference in the properties of gases and liquids (e. Hydrophobicity Air and Liquid Filtration Differences Hydrophobic filters lack an affinity for. such as organic solvents. These mechanisms are interception. A hydrophobic filter will not wet in water. inertial impaction. particles smaller than the pore size.g. Given a solution.Abstracts Basic Filtration Concepts Filtration is a dynamic science of growing information. This is not true because a 1. but will wet in low surface-tension liquids. As the filter becomes laden. Therefore membranes even as high as 3 µm can provide a sterile air barrier for equipment and instruments. These basic filtration concepts have been compiled to establish a common ground from which we can work to determine your needs. If you have any questions about these concepts or specific questions about your application. this is the measure of the efficiency of a filter for the production of ultrapure air based on the concentration of 0. differential pressure increases.3 µm Dioctylphthalate aerosol particles that penetrate a filter at a predetermined flow. Differential Pressure (psid) is the difference between inlet and outlet pressure. The most important variables are described below. a larger filter area allows faster flow rates at a given differential pressure and larger expected filter throughput volumes prior to filter loading. Flow rate is directly proportional to the porosity of the membrane (more pores = higher flow rate). Due to the nature of gas filtration through microporous membrane media. 888. usually on the order of 10 –1. please call us at 734. Effective Filter Area (EFA): Filter devices are available in a wide range of sizes with different Effective Filtration Areas (EFA). relatively large pore size filters should efficiently remove small particles from air.pall.98% efficiency when challenged with a 0.2 µm. distinctive terminology and proprietary knowledge. the media is typically exposed to aerosolized particles of a standard size. gravitational settling and electrostatic attraction.676. In aerosol retention. the density of air is about 1000 times lower than liquid) filtering particles from air is not as difficult.2 µm pore size membrane has a 99. To measure retention efficiency of hydrophobic membranes (depth or membrane media). EFA is the filter area that is available for filtration.3 µm DOP aerosolized particle. Generally.. By definition. One of the most common misconceptions about air filtration is that an efficient sterilizing grade hydrophobic filter must have a rating of 0.7255 • www.913. membranes are 50 to 90% open space. Interception and inertial impaction have the greatest impact on aerosol retention because adsorptive mechanisms are much more powerful in air filtration than they are with corresponding cases in liquid filtration. Selection of appropriate filter media is critical to achieve specific goals within your application. Porosity is the measure of all of the open spaces (pores) in the membrane.6124 or 888. or repel. The DOP test method is a standardized test to measure this retention efficiency. It is usually expressed as a percentage of retention.676. diffusion.com 3 . are retained.7255. In fact. This performance is affected by many different variables. water. Hydrophobic filters are best suited for gas filtration and venting (Example: Pall Medical’s PTFE membrane).
