The Air Filters product group within the Eurovent Association has released the first edition of its guidebook ‘Air Filters for General Ventilation’.
Over 28 pages, the document provides for a hands-on introduction to all-important aspects related to air filters. It constitutes the first of many measures within Eurovent’s upcoming #IAQmatters awareness raising campaign.
The guidebook briefs air handling equipment manufacturers and end-users on correct air filtration. It covers topics including: the importance of filtration; the benefits of using air filters; the fundamentals of air filtration; standards in place; correct filter design; energy efficiency of air filters; key applications for air filters; and correct assembling, maintenance and disposal of used filters.
Specific attention is given to the new global ISO16890 air filter standard, as well as the importance of air filters in ensuring a healthy indoor climate.
Chris Howarth (Jasun Envirocare Plc, United Kingdom), member of the Eurovent Product Group ‘Air Filters’ and lead editor of the new guidebook, said: “Our industry talks a lot about Indoor Air Quality these days. Yet often without offering any practical solutions. At the Eurovent Association, we have been working on changing this for many years by developing guidelines and standards throughout all ventilation areas.”
He continued: “With air filters constituting a key factor in ensuring a better indoor air quality, the aim of our new guidebook is to provide users of our products with hands-on information to receive a better understanding of air filtration and what is behind this seemingly simple product.”
The Eurovent Product Group ‘Air Filters’ is the largest grouping of air filter manufacturers worldwide, and home to more than 30 manufacturers. ‘Air Filters for General Ventilation’ is available free-of-charge at www.eurovent.eu.
It is also part of Eurovent’s upcoming #IAQmatters campaign, which is an evolving, open-source platform offering practical advice on issues related to Indoor Air Quality.
