Description

The increasing importance of nonwoven filter media is due in part to their versatility: they are used in the pre-filtration of liquids, protection of membrane filters, gaseous filtration, the automotive industry, air purification, wet filtration and many household uses. Despite this, no comprehensive account of these media has existed until now. Irwin (Marshall) Hutten is well-known throughout the nonwoven industry and brings enormous experience and knowledge to this Handbook. All aspects of the properties, formation, materials, types of filters, applications, test-methods and standards are to be found within this volume.

Key Features
