Coarse Ceramic filter for the NCAT Ignition oven

The coarse ceramic filter was designed to catch the large bits of ash and debris that are produced during a sample burn. If these pieces end up in the exhaust system, they start to collect on the walls of the piping. This can eventually build up enough that it restricts airflow, lowering efficiency and creating a fire hazard in your lab. On top of that, because the coarse ceramic filter catches them before they end up in your exhaust, they aren’t able to cause air pollution.

The filter collects the debris and allows the afterburner to heat it up until it breaks down into smaller pieces. This reduces the strain on the exhaust system and makes the exhaust much cleaner than it would be otherwise.

Fragile if handled incorrectly

The coarse ceramic filter consists of a network of holes that are held together by thin strips of ceramic. While the filter holds together when facing the heat of an NCAT, once heated, it cannot stand up to physical stress and will break when handled improperly.

The easiest and safest way to hold the ceramic filter is like a pizza or how a server holds a tray. Support the filter with a flat hand in the middle
