IMPACT OF FILTER CONTAMINATION ON EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF AIR FILTER
Perz K., Rewolińska A.
pages 766 - 769, full text

Compressed air is one of the main sources of energy used in manufacturing processes in various industries. Its production requires considerable financial outlays incurred on the supply of compression equipment and transmitting this medium to reception facilities. At the time of generation and transmission of compressed air there occur drops of air pressure due, among others, to: flow resistance and resistance caused by the air treatment facilities, etc. The work shows the influence of contamination of compressed air filters, after a certain time of operation, on the pressure drop in the installation. Conducted preliminary tests that measure the impact of air velocity on pressure drop. In this part of the experiment, determined the linear dependence of the pressure drop to fluid flow rate. Basic research consisted in determining the pressure drop arising on the filter correctly in the installation depending on the degree of contamination of the filter. These contaminants cause a drop in air pressure downstream of the filter, which can affect the proper operation of the equipment supplied by it.
