“How can we remove solid particles from the incoming air?”
When working with ventilation based applications, we often have to deal with particulates such as bacteria and dust coming into the mixture. An influx of these materials at the wrong time can prove hazardous and even disastrous for the system. So how can we use our engineering mindset to solve this problem? Well, what if we were to simply apply a layer of fibrous materials that could absorb such materials? Well, this is the idea behind a technology known as air filters, and are used in applications ranging from wind tunnels to internal combustion engines.
