The present invention provides a combination filter for filtering fluids comprising a flow channel particulate filtration media having a first face and a second face and a gas adsorbing filtration media. The flow channel particulate filtration media comprises a plurality of flow channels directed in flow direction and defined by inner surfaces. The flow channels having inlet openings through the first face and outlet openings through the second face of the flow channel particulate filtration media. The inner surfaces of said flow channels at least in part are provided with structures protruding therefrom and forming or extending into the flow channels or an electrical charge or a combination of both. The said gas adsorbing filtration media comprises a pad having a first face and a second face and width and length dimensions orthogonal with respect to each other and each individually to the flow direction and having a thickness dimension in flow direction. The pad comprising a layer extending substantially perpendicular to the flow direction across the width and length dimensions of the pad.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
