Abstract:

MASKS AND FILTERS ARE WORN OVER THE HEAD OR FACE TO PROTECT INDIVIDUALS FROM EXPOSURE TO TOXIC CHEMICAL VAPORS. IN THESE DEVICES, THERE IS NO CONVENIENT OR EFFECTIVE WAY TO TELL WHETHER THE ADSORBENT IN THE MASK IS FRESH OR USED. A SENSOR THAT COULD FIT INSIDE THE PROTECTIVE SORBENT BED AND TELL THE REMAINING USEFUL LIFETIME OF THE FILTER WOULD BE IDEAL. IN THIS PROJECT, A MICROCOMPUTER MICROSENSOR WILL BEDESIGNED AND FABRICATED. THIS SENSOR CAN FIT INSIDE A CARBON ADSORBENT BED IN A CANNISTER FILTER AND INDICATE WHETHER THE FILTER IS OPERATING PROPERLY OR WHETHER IT IS USED AND HAZARDOUS VAPORS ARE PENETRATING THE PROTECTIVE DEVICE. THE FEASIBILITY OF AN ADVANCED RESPIRATORY PROTECTIVE DEVICE THAT CAN ALERT THE USER WHEN IT IS NO LONGER EFFECTIVE IS ASSESSED.
