Sensitivity Analysis Of Process Parameters For Polyurethane Based Panel Air Filters

The polyurethane processing for panel air filters (flexible foam)for high yield (free of all defects) is very critical and sensitive on account of Polyurethane making chemistry, short reaction times, process conditions, ambient temperature and humidity , equipment dispensing-mixing precision and moulds’ surface quality, moulds’ temperature and uniformity impacting the defects in filters like pin holes, short filling, over filling or growth, skin damage, loose skin, voids, hardness variations, shrink marks, knit lines etc. Research is conducted to study and establish a correlation between various parameters so that process settings can be altered to ensure minimum variation to output in spite of variation in inputs and noise to the system.
