Filtration of aerosols is omnipresent in our daily lives, in areas as diverse as health, the protection of people and the environment, and air treatment inside buildings. However, the collection of particles within a filter media is not, contrary to popular belief, linked to a simple screen effect. The phenomena involved are much more complex and require the consideration of aerosol interactions, filter media and process conditions to select the best fiber filter for a given application.
This book for students, hygiene or process engineers, fibrous media manufacturers, designers, and filtration system suppliers or users addresses the filtration of aerosols in six chapters. These chapters cover physics and aerosol characterization, the fibrous media, and efficiency and filter clogging by solid or liquid aerosols, with special attention to the filtration of the nanoparticles.

About the Authors

Dominique Thomas is Professor of Process Engineering at the University of Lorraine, France. His research on filtration and aerosol characterization involves the fields of human safety, the environment and processes.
Augustin Charvet is Assistant Professor of Process Engineering at the University of Lorraine, France. His research studies deal with the characterization of aerosols and their collection with different kinds of separators (fibrous filters, bubble columns, granular beds, etc.).
Nathalie Bardin-Monnier is Assistant Professor of Process Engineering at the University of Lorraine, France. Her research studies deal with the filtration of aerosols and dust explosions and are conducted using computational tools such as CFD codes.
Jean-Christophe Appert-Collin is Assistant Professor of Process Engineering at the University of Lorraine, France. His research, conducted in the Reactions and Chemical Engineering Laboratory, focuses on filtration of solid and liquid aerosols by fibrous media.
