Assessing the Real Benefits of Filtration
Thursday, April 18 | 9:15 am – 10:15 am

We use filters to reduce exposure to particles.  We base our estimates of the benefit of filtration on standard tests of filtration that happen in test ducts or chambers under particular conditions.  Real life is almost always different from these tests and differently different in every environment.  Furthermore, filtration performance in any environment changes over time in ways that are like different than standardized tests of filter conditioning or loading.  This presentation discusses two methods of assessing filter testing in any environment, rather than a laboratory.  Both use low-cost instrumentation and provide a direct assessment of air cleaning performance in any environment.  Results from portable and central air cleaning systems in a variety of different environments (classrooms, offices, homes) show the real value of filters that is specific to an environment and can be used to illustrate the direct benefit of filtration.
