JP Air Tech has begun the process of purchasing and installing new MFP Nano plus filter test rig equipment which will be used for new filter media design, product development and quality control.

Supplied by German company Palas, the MFP filter test rig is a modular filter testing system for flat filter media and small mini-filters, which can quickly measure pressure loss curves and fractional separation efficiency. The MFP Nano plus has integrated mass flow controllers that it uses to control the volume flow and can be automatically monitored and controlled via the filter test software.

The new test rig will operate according to DIN EN 1822-3 and ISO 29463-3, and comes with a powerful nano particle measuring device with a measurement range from 5 nm to 1 µm. It also allows the use a different test aerosols such as NaCl / KCl or DEHS, and provides a clear indication of the MPPS range.

Managing director of JP Air Tech, Jorgen Poulsen, said: “The filter media test rig will allow our engineers to conduct precise filter media testing.”
