Based on geometrical considerations a theoretical equation has been derived relating pressure drop to filter- and fibre-properties. Theoretical predictions are shown to be in satisfactory agreement with experimental results, obtained with single component glass fibre filters having porosities not exceeding 0·94; for higher filter porosities the present theory should be refined.
