MFP Nano plus 4000 with U-SMPS - Real-time determination of fraction separation efficiency in accordance to DIN EN 1822-3 und ISO 29463-3 with two UF-CPC in raw and clean gas and detection of MMPS range

Description

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

The MFP Nano plus 4000 is specially designed for clear determination of the separation efficiency of HEPA and ULPA filter media in accordance with DIN EN 1822-3 and ISO 29463-3.

In the form of the U-SMPS, a modern and powerful nano particle measuring device with a measurement range from 5 nm to 1 µm is used for particle size and quantity analysis:

Measurement of the separation efficiency at a specific size is performed in real-time with the MFP Nano plus 4000 and a UF-CPC condensation particle counter in both the raw and clean gas.

Real-time measurement of the fraction separation efficiency in the MFP Nano plus 4000 offers the following special advantages:

  • By measuring the particle concentration in the raw and clean gas, the measuring time for determining the fraction separation efficiency is halved.
  • Combining two UF-CPC versions, the UF-CPC for the highest concentrations up to 2,000,000 particles/cm3 (single count mode) in the raw gas and the UF-CPC 50 for top counting rates at low concentrations in the clean gas, corresponds to a dilution factor of 1:200. Conventional aerosol dilution is therefore no longer necessary.

With the aid of the universal aerosol generator UGF 2000, defined aerosol distributions matched to the MMPS range can be produced with DEHS or salt (NaCl / KCl).

The largely automated setup of the test sequence together with the clearly defined individual components and the individually adjustable sequence programs of the filter test software FTControl combine to deliver the high reliability of our measurement results.

The MFP filter test rig is a modular filter testing system for flat filter media and small mini-filters.
Pressure loss curves, fraction separation efficiency or burden can be determined within a very short period of time – both reliably and cost-effectively.

Our quality in detail

1. Variable aerosol generation with the UGF 2000 for KCl / NaCl or DEHS. Integrated Nafion drying system. The volume flow for the aerosol generation is individually regulated via mass flow controllers.

2. Aerosol neutralization: Krypton source Kr-85-370 or Soft x-ray Charger XRC 370
Corona discharge (optional): Adjustable ion stream for different mass flows. Mixed air, adjustable for inflow speeds from 1.5 to 40 cm/s. Monitoring and control are implemented via mass flow controllers.

3. Mobile pneumatic filter holder for fast removal and loading of the test rig with integrated DEMC 2000 (Differential Electrical Mobility Classifier).
The DEMC 2000 (Differential Electrical Mobility Classifier) contained in the U-SMPS classifies the particle size of the polydisperse aerosol generated with the UGF 2000. Only monodisperse particles are contained downstream of the DEMC 2000. The relevant size is automatically regulated by the DEMC 2000 control unit.

4. Raw gas measurement for number distribution with UF-CPC 200 for high concentrations
To measure the particle number in the raw gas, the UF-CPC 200 condensation particle counter is used for particle counting up to 2,000,000 particles/cm3 in single count mode. This means that no dilution system is needed for raw gas measurement in very high concentrations.
Lengthy or complex cleaning of the systems is not required.

5. Clean gas measurement for number distribution with UF-CPC 50 for low concentrations
The "full flow" UF-CPC 50 is optimised for low particle concentrations (single count mode up to 10,000 particles/cm3) in the clean gas. The entire sampling volume flow is fully analysed in "full flow" particle measurement in the UF-CPC. This means that very high counting rates can be achieved at low particle concentrations in the clean gas.

The Palas® filter test software FTControl controls the U-SMPS and evaluates the data.

Adjustment of the aerosol distribution to the MPPS range

Through suitable adjustment of the solution concentration, the generated particle size distribution is matched to the relevant MPPS range in the MFP Nano plus 4000.

  • Clear demonstration of the separation efficiency of the filter medium throughout the entire measurement range
  • Clear determination of the MPPS range
  • Highest measurement reproducibility and repeatability highlight even fine differences in the separation efficiency
  • Short measurement times down to two minutes per separation efficiency measurement thanks to optimized aerosol application
  • Simple comparison of separation efficiency curves, calculation of mean values also possible

Automation:
The MFP Nano plus 4000 has integrated mass flow controllers that it uses to control the volume flow; these can be automatically monitored and controlled via the FTControl filter test software.

The sensor data such as the volume flow and differential pressure at the filter are automatically also recorded during the filter test.

Verification of conformity of sampling in raw and clean gas:
Verification of conformity of raw and clean gas measurement without filters is demonstrated in the course of the initial training.

With the MFP Nano plus 4000, measurements of the fraction separation efficiency can be performed both in the MPPS range and across the entire measurement range. In addition, the relevant pressure loss of the medium is clearly determined at the relevant inflow speed.
