Arrival of Filter Testing System
The Palas PMFT System, a mask and filter media testing system, is now available in our laboratory. Special thanks to Alberta Innovates and NSERC for the financial support.
- This testing system can measure particle sizes from 100 nm up to 40 μm, and our testing rig is capable of evaluating respiratory masks, such as N95, KN95, KF94 (Korea 1st Class), and FFRs (Eu), and HEPA air filters more effectively than standard testing.
- The PMFT System operates in compliance with various international testing standards such as EN 149 and EN 13274-7, equivalent to GB 2626, 42 CFR 84, and ASTM 2299-3.
Our paper "Engineering of Materials for Respiratory Protection: Salt-Coated Antimicrobial Fabrics for Their Application in Respiratory Devices" was featured on the front cover of ACS Accounts of Materials Research.
