Abstract:

The methods used by various authors to determine the effectiveness of the bacteria traps based on the sedimentation and filtration principle rely on subjective methods of estimation, which affects the accuracy of the obtained results. An objective method is proposed for estimating the effectiveness of the bacteria traps, using the photoelectronic particle counter which enables one to determine the traps property of devices taking into account the concentration of the bacterial aerosol particles during sampling.
