High Efficiency Air Filtration -- Industrial Assistance Program
Mr. D. Maynard Dykes is the SRS site authority, and a world-class expert, in air filtration. He helps government and industry with design, tests, test methods, procedures, procurement specifications, systems qualification, and health/safety/environmental issues.
For example, whenever nuclear isotopes are used, there are special requirements to maintain a decontamination factor with filtration. At SRS, he's contributed to dramatic reductions in the number and cost of systems required. For textile companies, he's helped with air balance, cold spots, and lint problems. HVAC consultants can generally do heating and cooling, but are less likely to be able to deal effectively with problems like contaminants. Mr. Dykes trains people in-house at SRS and elsewhere to be able to deal with these issues.
