Abstract:With increased scope and activity of the nanotechnology industry, there is a need for greater understanding about filter collection performance and efficiency. Filtration is a process which is used to control the particulate fluxes in exhaust streams throughout various manufacturing and laboratory processes. Filtration becomes a key factor in effective ventilation system design, particularly in relation to environmental and health concerns. The purpose of this paper is to explore filtration theory and techniques, summarise the various filter types employed, and illustrate the effectiveness for reducing particulate emissions during the machining process.

- The objective of the International Journal of Computational Materials Science and Surface Engineering is to establish an effective channel of communication between academic and research institutions and persons concerned with industrial research supported by practical application. It also aims at promoting and coordinating developments in the field of computational materials science and computational surface engineering by publishing original scientific papers which describe computer-aided methods of modelling, simulation and prediction for designing new engineering materials and the technological processes of the manufacturing in materials that are used for solving problems posed by materials and surface engineering professionsals, industrial managers and administrators, and technical education personnel.
