Bladewerx Speclon™ Filters
PTFE Membrane Filters
● Speclon PTFE Membrane Filters (Polyester-backed)
● Better CAM Sensitivity, Superior Surface Deposition
● Lower False Alarms, Faster Alarm Response Times
● Greatly Reduces Background from Radon Progeny
● Custom Sizes and Shapes, Variety of Diameters
Bladewerx SpeclonTM PTFE-membrane filter media is recognized for its superior surface deposition characteristic, resulting in sharper energy resolution for alpha spectroscopy applications. Whether the application is continuous air monitoring, or personal/fixed air samplers with retrospective analysis, Bladewerx Speclon filters can provide a cost-effective alternative to glass fiber, cellulose, or acetate filters.
High sensitivity alpha-in-air spectroscopy is dependent on spectrum resolution. Because of the excellent surface deposition qualities of the PTFE membrane filter, the full-width half-max (FWHM) alpha radiation peak resolution is significantly improved over glass fiber, cellulose or acetate filter media. As a result of using the PTFE membrane filters in an alpha radiation CAM, the minimum detectable concentration can be improved by as much as 30% and allow either faster alarm response times or reduced false alarms.
