Nonwoven – Application Note

Nonwovens are very commonly used as filtration media. Typical examples are air-conditioning, masks, water purification, blood filtration, pharmaceutical filtrations, and many others.

Nonwovens are often characterized by how they are produced (spunbond, meltblown, etc) and their weight, leading to differences in strength and durability. But also the pore sizes are an influential factor in selecting the most suitable nonwoven for the different filtration requirements.

Capillary flow porometry is an easy and straightforward way to characterize the pores in nonwoven filter media. On top of that, our porometers generate fast & reproducible results. Especially our POROLUX™ Cito L is a well established instrument within the nonwoven media industry.

Porometer’s dedicated products for this application are:
