Environment Air RemediationLocomotive Air Filter
Nano air filters are containing electrospining polymeric nano fibers and has high dust absorbtion capability. Nanofibers due to large surface area, high length to width ratio with low density causes great particlecollection during the cleaning process leading to increase in the filtration efficiency. The mechanism is that the thin layer of nanofiber web forms a barrier for particles while allowing the air to “slip” through the large volume of small pores. The large surface area of the nanofibers traps smaller particles, while air slips through the particles and filter medium.
Like other vehicles, locomotives should have proper filtration system. The air used for this filter should be refined. Due to the use of locomotives for various purposes, providing enough air and lack of high pressure at certain intervals is important.
Due to the importance of low pressure drop in locomotives, the use of filters with high efficiency bedding is not possible, but the use of nano-fiber coatings overcomes this problem so that using the nano filter can produce the highest filtration quality required while flow rate of System requirements are also provided.
