Abstract:

An adapter has been developed to allow an air filter to be easily attached and removed from the exhaust port of the M43A1 Chemical Agent Detector. The adapter is to replace a threaded coupling presently in use, provide reliable filter retention, and ease of attachment and removal. The adapter was designed for low-cost production in quantities of 100,000. Three design alternatives are presented. Production, testing, and evaluation of each design is described. An ultrasonically assembled two-part design with an internal Nitrile -ring is selected. The components are injection molded of Acetal Resin. JS
