Abstract : New quarters were obtained to provide working space for making and testing model filters. Equipment located there includes a slitting machine, small pleater, circular and band saws, and other tools necessary for filter manufacture and test equipment construction. Sketches are presented to show various designs of cone seals, large filter installations, and general applications for the hollow cube and roll type filters. Test data on 24" x 24" filters indicate that an increase in capacity of from 30 to 50% can be obtained over comparable size Chem. Corps filters. Accelerated aging tests show that the plastisol used for end sealing the pleats is appreciably affected by storage for one month at 1000 0. Further tests are planned to determine aging at probable working temperatures. Photographs of modifications to the hollow cube and the roll type filters are presented. Test data from the portable media tester at Brookhaven show a very slow build up in pressure drop, indicating relatively clean air. (KAR) P. 4
