Institute of Chemical Engineering and Technology, University of the Punjab, (Quaid-e-Azam Campus) Lahore, Pakistan Two types of microfiltrex materials were tested for their separation performances for different air now rates and dust loadings. Retention of dust particles within the filler and the surface cake were measured. From mass deposited inside the filter media, change in porosities together with the increase in filler and cake pressure drops were calculated as a function of loading and approach velocity. Leakage from these materials was also investigated at different approach velocities. Keywords : MICRO-POROUS, MICRO-FIBROUS FILTRATION
