EN The performance of a particle filter is primarily determined by its media. Today's filter media is a composition of different layers known as MULTIGRADE or MICROGRADE media. Selecting the right combination of layers requires a lot of experience. Recent progress now enables the simulation of complex structures to support the development by adding information about the media utilization. However, published results point out that the local inhomogeneity of the fiber structure plays an important role. Thus computer models have been developed to reproduce 3D fiber structures. However, these 3D fiber structures are still simplified models, as they have just a few input parameters and do not account for the production process. But state-of-the-art simulation software, such as GeoDict, provides the opportunity to import 3D images of real fiber structures as initial geometry. Micro-tomography now promises to deliver this quantitative data about the real 3D fibrous structure. In this paper first results are presented, indicating that we extracted the true fibrous structure of a synthetic media by segmentation of the raw XCT data with the software MAVI. In contrast to other publications, the packing density of the media was not used as fitting factor, but obtained without a priori knowledge. The results discussed show a reasonably good agreement with measured data for packing density, fiber diameter distribution, initial pressure drop and initial efficiency. However, it is crucial to select a region of interest large enough to be representative.
