We have supported conventional filter media manufacturing in helping to repurpose and equip machinery to provide a significant upscale in UK manufacturing of up to 12,500,000 FFP2 masks. Covering the production of filter media to the construction of complete Respiratory Protective Equipment, RPE.
Through our industrial partners, we have access to equipment that can facilitate the UK manufacture of the key component of Respiratory Protective Equipment, the filter media. We can also obtain production machinery on a relatively short lead time and manufacturing is highly scalable.
We have access to industry experts and specialist filter test equipment (aerosol generation, flow rate & laser particle counting). We have worked closely with a world-leading filter test equipment manufacturer and assisted the conventional manufacturing industry in obtaining this equipment on a comparably short lead time.
We have assisted in connecting a large scale conventional media manufacturer to accelerate production. We have access to two forms of new (novel) filter media which has been independently tested and can provide filtration greater than for FFP2.
We have received funding to increase our understanding of filters when testing outside of the standard. Our work is ongoing but our intention is to make this information freely available.
Although our efforts have been evolving continuously, great collaboration and organisation has been achieved using the ClickUp cloud-based project management tool:
