Particle filters: Not only important
in the automotive area.
When the term "particle filter" is mentioned, one thinks immediately to the automotive industry, exhaust gas standards and soot particle filters. Their task is to catch even minute contaminations, that is, fine dust, from the exhaust gases of a vehicle before they enter the environment.
Especially fine dust is a serious problem for the human respiratory organs. They do not only cause allergies but are brought into context with much more serious diseases.
Particle filters are therefore used to clean the exhaust gases of automobiles thus reducing pollution for people – not without critique but still effective.
However, particle filters are also used in laser technology. These filters are referred to here as deionisation filters. They clean the air in the cooling circuit of the laser and must be regularly replaced if the laser shall function without problems in the long run.
