Abstract:

New World Associates in association with ECBC, Hunter Manufacturing, and Portsmouth Aviation has proved the concept of a layered bed CBRTIC filter. Filters have been developed that provide toxic industrial chemical protection in addition to the chemical, biological and radiological protection provided by the standard M98 filter set. This concept can be extended to other TICs in addition to the ones selected for this effort. A layered filter can be made with a sorbent selected for the specific TICs of concern for a particular application. It has been shown that it is possible to retrofit these filters into existing collective protective ColPro systems with housings designed to hold the M98 filter. With relatively minor modifications to accommodate the increase in pressure drop and a replacement housing cover, these filters can be installed in any land based ColPro system. These filters are complete such that with minor modifications they could be ready for production very quickly if there was a demand for them. The majority of filters passed the particulate and chemical tests and proved they would remove the contaminants as design.
