A method for the prediction of granular filter performance is presented, based on the analogy of filtration to the statistical chi-square distribution. The successful application of the method is illustrated by use of the experimental data of a number of different workers. An apparatus consisting of three thin depth filters is proposed to collect the data necessary for the performance prediction.
