Particle sizes and .8um syringe filters.
    #11389456 - 11/05/09 09:41 AM (8 years, 6 months ago)

Hey folks.  I was wondering if anyone could tell me how large most contaminates are.  I got a super deal on .8um syringe filters, and am hoping to be able to use them!

From the reasearch I could gather, the smallest common, airborne spore is about 3 microns...does this sound right?

If that's the case, then .8um should be fine...?

Either way, I'm going to try them out, next to .1um filters, and see what happens, but I'd just like a heads up, ya know?
This is the best info I could find.

Most contaminant spores are larger than 3 microns, including most mushroom spores.  Your filter would probably nuke them too.
