Recently, numerous researchers are interested in the development of new air filter because of air pollution caused by rapid industrialization and urbanization. The major concerns in developing air filters are: pressure drop and filtration efficiency which are considered significant. As the pressure drop increases, the energy consumption becomes high. In this study, we developed a novel air filter (polyurethane fiber mat) for nano size filtration using a mass production electrospinning, which is expected to enhance filtration efficiency and pressure drop effects. To determine the optimal electrospinning conditions for filter efficiency, various concentrations (8, 10, 12 wt/wt%) of thermoplastic polyurethane were prepared and employed. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) were used for fiber characterization, and finally, efficiency test was conducted to evaluate the filter performance of developed nanofiber-based air filter. From this study, it could be concluded that optimization by adjusting the polymer concentration and electrospinning operating condition was the best efficient alternative method to fabricate nano-fibrous air filter system with improved filtration performance.
