Air cleaning technology plays a vital role in radiation protection in the nuclear industry and the operating environments for which equipment has to be designed are many and varied. Thus, a given system may have to cater for hot, dry conditions or moisture laden atmospheres at ambient temperatures, for submicronic particles at low mass loadings or dense streams of combustion products, for noble gases or highly corrosive vapours; from the point of view of the equipment, radiation is simply an additional complicating factor which rarely plays a role in the actual filtration process. Moreover, in keeping with overall emphasis on safety in the industry, testing, efficiency, reliability and maintenance are held to be of major importance. In view of this, it is hardly surprising that the nuclear industry has made major contributions to the development of new and improved air cleaning equipment suitable for application in many other industries. The present volume, thanks to its many contributors, provides an excellent overview of experience and the latest developments primarily from the nuclear point of view.
