Filter service life estimator

A mechanical device is used to estimate a service life of an air filter exposed to a certain chemical at various concentrations, flow rates, and relative humidity conditions. The device includes two members, one of which has at least one window, connected so that their surfaces are movable relative to one another. One member has numerical values for chemical concentrations and service life estimates printed on it. The member having windows has at least one mark printed on it by which it can be oriented relative to the chemical concentration scale on the other member. When the two members are aligned relative to a chemical concentration of interest, the corresponding service life estimate is displayed in an appropriate window.
