Vibratory Carbon Filling.

For flat carbon beds, snowstorm filling is perfectly adequate. However, curved beds cannot be produced in this manner. In order to fill the new US military gas mask filter which has a compound curve to closely fit to the face, we had to develop a new filling process.

Existing vibratory filling methods only compact the carbon bed by 12-15% and this was inadequate for this very high specification filter.

Our solution was to develop a new method of vibratory filling which is 8 times faster than conventional filling and produces 18-21% compaction! The photo shows one of our snowstorm fillers, designed to fill oblong filters We believe we are the only manufacturer capable of snowstorm filling various non standard filter shapes using the snowstorm method. We cannot illustrate our vibratory system due to confidentiality.
