Title
(EN) V-BANK FILTER
(FR) FILTRE À BANCS EN V
Abstract
(EN) The present disclosure is directed methods and apparatus of a V-Bank filtration system capable of maintaining desired air flow rates while effectively filtering the air. These methods and apparatus charge particles and then capture those particles in a filter medium. Once captured in the filter medium, micro-organisms are exposed to high energy electric fields that may degrade and ultimately destroy the captured micro-organisms. Electric fields generated within portions of the V-Bank filter apparatus may also be contained within the portions of the filter apparatus based on exterior parts of these portions being grounded at Earth ground potential. Magnetic fields (or electro-magnetic fields) associated with the generated electric fields may also be contained within the portions of the apparatus based on the exterior parts of these portions being grounded.
(FR) La présente divulgation concerne des procédés et un appareil d'un système de filtration à bancs en V capable de maintenir des débits d'air souhaités tout en filtrant efficacement l'air. Ces procédés et cet appareil chargent des particules et ensuite capturent ces particules dans un milieu filtrant. Une fois capturé dans le milieu filtrant, des micro-organismes sont exposés à des champs électriques à haute énergie qui peuvent dégrader et finalement détruire les micro-organismes capturés. Des champs électriques générés dans des parties de l'appareil de filtre à bancs en V peuvent également être contenus dans les parties de l'appareil de filtre sur la base de parties extérieures de ces parties mises à la terre au potentiel de mise à la terre. Des champs magnétiques (ou des champs électromagnétiques) associés aux champs électriques générés peuvent également être contenus dans les parties de l'appareil sur la base des parties extérieures de ces parties mises à la terre.
