Wozair Limited manufactures the patented Quickmix Injectors, for in-situ filter testing using dispersed oil test aerosols. The QMI was designed and developed at AEA Technology’s Harwell Laboratory as an active aerosol injector to enable well mixed mist to be produced from aerosol generators. It uses the energy of compressed air to enhance the mixing of test aerosol with the ventilation system airflow. It is to be located upstream of the filters.
For industries which use hazardous or toxic materials in their processes, it is essential to regularly and accurately demonstrate filter systems continue to meet their stated performance standards. Such in-situ testing will typically be conducted under normal flow conditions and it is essential that the aerosol has mixed fully with the flow of air to adequately challenge the filter.
The advantage of the QMI over other injection methods is that mixing is achieved in short ducting lengths up to 6 duct diameters compared to more than 10 duct diameters for conventional methods such as natural mixing and Stairmand disc.
