Description:

The Environmental Technology Verification report discusses the technology and performance of the AeroStar FP-98 Minipleat V-Bank Filter air filter for dust and bioaerosol filtration manufactured by Filtration Group. The pressure drop across the filter was 137 Pa clean and 348 Pa dust loaded. The filtration efficiency when the filter was clean was 98% for Bacillus atrophaeus, 98% for Serratia marcescens, and 97% for bacteriophage MS2. The filtration efficiency when the filter was dust loaded was 99.5% for Bacillus atrophaeus, 99% for Serratia marcescens, and 99.8% for bacteriophage MS2. The ASHRAE 52.2 dust filtration efficiency was 94% for particles between 0.3 and 1.0 micrometers, 99% for particles between 1.0 and 3.0 micrometers, and 99% for particles between 3.0 and 10 micrometers. The minimum efficiency reporting value was 15 at 0.93 cubic meters per sec.
