Abstract:

The purpose of this investigation was to compare the results of flow rate on efficiency of a commercial filter with tfe results of Hamiltons investigation and Ewbanks proposed equation. Since the efficiency of a filter was determined to be a function of viscosity, operating temperature, flow rate, and amount of contaminant accumulated in the filter the first two variables were held constant over each run but was varied between runs. Since the amount of contaminant accumulated in the filter changes continuously during the tests, the data obtained was cross plotted to get a reading of efficiencies at constant dirt loading for each particular flow rate.
