To ensure good indoor air quality that protects workers from toxins and combustible dust explosions, manufacturers today can use two key standards to select the proper dust collection equipment and filters: ASHRAE 52.2 and ASHRAE Standard 199.

Many replacement dust collector filters offer the MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) ratings of ASHRAE 52.2. However, these ratings only reveal a part of the story for the removal of processing dust, as MERV ratings apply more for new dust collector filters and their initial filtration level in a static environment. The ASHRAE Standard 199 test complements ASHRAE 52.2 by evaluating equipment performance during actual use over time, as well as the efficiency of the entire dust collection system.

During this webinar, an air filtration expert will explain how you can use both ASHRAE rating standards. To Implement the best air quality program at your facility. Specific equipment that will be discussed includes dust collection systems and the filter cartridges that they rely on to operate efficiently.

Attend to learn:

  • ASHRAE standards that govern indoor air quality
  • The difference between ASHRAE 52.2 and 199
  • How to evaluate equipment that maintains good air quality
  • Calculating emissions to determine air quality
  • Balancing filter efficiency with consumable and energy costs
