9780080412740: Air Filtration: An Integrated Approach to the Theory and Applications of Fibrous Filters

The need for clean air has probably never been greater. Many industrial employees need to avoid exposure to airborne particulates, while certain industrial processes demand clean air of exceptional quality. Medical and biological fields rely on sterile air, while filtration can improve air quality in offices, homes and all types of transport. Filters act in a variety of complex and subtle ways. Each chapter introduces its subject matter simply, before tackling the problem in greater depth. The book therefore provides an excellent basis for detailed study, but is also invaluable to anyone needing an overview of the subject.

Review:

This book provides both an introduction to the subject and more detailed study. It should be essential reading for anyone involved in maintenance or monitoring of air quality. Lavoisier
