Cummins contributes filtration technology to produce medical masks

Cummins has teamed with DuPont to use its NanoNet and NanoForce filtration technologies to produce N95 respirator masks, for use in the fight against Covid-19.

The filtration technologies can be found in air, fuel, and lube filtration products used in heavy-duty diesel engines to prevent long-term engine wear but can also be used in the N95 respirator masks desperately needed by healthcare professionals.

“Our NanoNet media can fill a key supply void and help address the mask shortage facing the United States and other countries around the world,” said Amy Davis, vice-president of Cummins Filtration.
