Package as Template

      A family of dust enclosures have been designed to filter the
air and block out contaminants that affect the reliability of the
media.  A unique template included with each enclosure is a tool by
which the installing customer engineering verifies the air filter
clogging automatic alarm system.

      This disclosure describes an arrangement by which function and
cost of the template is incorporated into the off the shelf air
filter packaging.

      Referring to the Figure, the unique template (1) has clearance
holes (2 and 3) through which air passes.  When placed over the
filter, air passage through these holes represents airflow of a
clogged filter.  A purchased filter (4) with removable weakened areas
(5 and 6) duplicates performance of the template.  After verification
of the alarm system, remaining filter packaging is removed and
discarded.
