Grahic Jump Location
SEM micrographs of the inner and outer surfaces of the exposed filters
Grahic Jump Location
Measured ΔP across the filter as a function of time at 600°C. The graphs show the effective cleanability of the filter as a function of reservoir pressure for a 1-s single pulse, and as a function of pulse duration at 11.2 bar reservoir pressure
Grahic Jump Location
Effect of exposure on pore size distribution represented as cumulative intrusion volume less than the stated pore diameter
Grahic Jump Location
Typical load-displacement plot and failure mode in O-ring compression tests
