In order to be intercepted, a particle must come within a distance from a fibre of one radius of itself. The particle thus makes contact with the fibre and becomes attached. The interception mechanism can be contrasted with the impaction mechanism in that a particle which is intercepted is smaller and its inertia is not strong enough to cause the particle to continue in a straight line. It therefore follows the air stream until it comes into contact with a fibre.
