HI Wim

I don't agree , I think there were at least 3 W.W. II versions

Raumfilter R 39-10 ( Hantsholm and Mirus ) Weight 310 kg
Raumfilter R 10 ( See the original drawing ) Weight 220 kg
Raumfilter R 5/10 ( Arthur's picture's ) Weight 115.6? kg

Jos,
You are right. I forgot the R39. I thought it was different but it looks like they are pretty much the same.
The one from Arthur: he doesn't tell where the picture is taken. So after or ww2 ?

We should compare drawings I guess.
Thanks,

Wim

Found another example of the Raumfilter from the good old paper-picture days.

Video from a facility near the DORA bunkers in Trondheim (airfilters shown at approximate 2:55): http://www.adressa.no/nyheter/trondheim ... 657815.ece

Hi Jos,

The text says:
S + G
10/ 162
Nr227 / 1938
Auer Rlb8

I guess that the S and G are for two types of gas for which the filter works
10 can be 10m3 like the R39
162 > amount of content or weight but I guess the "pressure loss" in water column
Nr227 > type number ?
1938 > year of birth
Auer > manufacturer
Rlb8 > ?
Thanks,

Wim

Very nice pictures of the R10!!
In most of the Westwall B-Werke the R10 were also used for the ventilation central. In Besseringen we had 4 of these, located above the two engines. None of them remained after the war.
So, if someone is selling a R10, please don't hestitate to contact me.
