EnviroSept Electronic Air Cleaners
Air filter manufacturers have their products independently tested in order to validate claims of performance. Industry wide, the ASHRAE Test Standard is the method of choice for most types of air filters.
The ASHRAE test standards are not specifically designed for any one type of air cleaning device, but at the same time, do not entirely address the variety of air filtering devices and the multitude of applications in which they are used. Filters are designed to capture and hold larger airborne particulate. These tests are designed to measure the total amount of dust holding capacity for a given filter.
Increasingly sophisticated, knowledgeable and informed consumers look for test data so they can make the best possible choice for their filtration requirements. Unlike the standard ASHRAE tests performed on standard disposable filters for arrestence, we conducted efficiency tests for the removal of sub-micron particulate. It is a given that if you can remove the sub-micron particulate, the larger particulate is not a challenge.
The testing was performed in a 1,008 cubic foot test chamber utilizing laser particle counters to measure the total number of particles by size. Three separate tests were performed using pollen, dust, and cigarette smoke.
The following reports summarizes by particle size the total number of particles counted in a cubic centimeter. The tests, which lasted from ten to twenty minutes, show the dramatic reduction in total particles as they are counted at the start of the test and every two minutes thereafter. After only twenty minutes, the equivalent of two air exchanges, the "EnviroSept" removed over 45% of particles in the (0.09 to 0.5 range) and over 77% of the particles in the (.5 to 1.0) micron range. The heating/cooling systems in most homes normally provide for at least five air exchanges per hour.
This testing clearly demonstrates the high efficiency of the EnviroSept Electronic Air Cleaner and what it may do for you in your home.
