MFP 1000

Fast and economical quality control and development of flat media with dust, oil or salt starting at 120 nm

MFP filter test rigs from Palas® have already proven themselves many times over all around the world in practical applications in development and quality control.

The MFP filter test rig is a modular filter testing system for flat filter media and small filters. The MFP 1000 can be used to determine:

  • pressure loss curve on the medium without a dust coating,
  • fraction separation efficiency, or
  • burden and fraction separation efficiency during application of the burden

within shortest times – reliably and therefore cost-effectively.

The corresponding aerosol generator can be used depending on the standard or application.
