Abstract:

A nondestructive test procedure to evaluate the structural integrity of filterseparator elements has been further developed, a prototype tested designed and built and evaluated in two plants. The tester appears to function without difficulty. Only about one element in every thousand tested was found defective when tested in this apparatus. More extensive use of the apparatus and correlation of results are required to establish performance on a statistically sound basis.
