Characterizing Filters in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Pore Size and Hydrophobicity
Face masks that cover the wearer’s mouth and nose are intended to prevent large particles from being expelled by the wearer into the environment, and can protect the wearer against non-aerosol particles of sufficiently large size. There exists a growing demand to quickly characterize the various filter media used in the construction of this type of personal protective equipment. Thankfully there are well-established techniques already in use to characterize a wide range of porous materials, and this webinar will address how they can be used effectively for this specific application.
Trainer: Dr. Martin Thomas
Dr. Thomas, Anton Paar QuantaTec’s Chief Scientist, has more than 37 years of experience in powder and porous materials characterization, 27 of those with Quantachrome Instruments before Anton Paar’s acquisition in 2018. Dr. Thomas graduated from the University of Birmingham (UK) with a Master’s degree in analytical chemistry followed by a PhD in physical-inorganic chemistry. He is named co-inventor on eight patents relating to porous solids and their characterization, and is co-author of “Characterization of Porous Solids and Powders: Surface Area, Pore Size and Density” (published by Springer).
