Can a piece of lint clog the orifice in the vent and give a
« on: August 09, 2010, 02:07:45 PM »

Extensive testing and research has shown that the minimal signature of the tap fitting and the minuscule flow of air required for our low-flow digital sensor does not support or permit lint build-up or contamination to any of the LintAlert components.

The high flow-impedance of the LintAlert pressure sensor limits the air-flow volume and velocity to such an extent that it is not capable of permitting lint to enter the tap fitting port or to allow lint particles to remain in the airstream throughout the journey vertically in the 6 feet of tubing. The airstream in the tubing travels very slowly at a rate of 6 feet in a half hour. Lint contamination at the tap fitting or in the sensor will not be a reliability hazard.
