INDUSTRY NEWS: posted 11 December 2017

ISO 16890 – the new standard for air filters.  Until now, there was no such standard; in the Americas, ASHRAE standard 52.2 dominated, in Europe EN779 was dominant and in Asia and the Middle East both standards were used side by side.

The ISO 16890 standard will eliminate confusion and prevent invalid attempts to cross-reference results from the different existing test methods.

The better we understand the air we breathe, the easier our filter choice becomes. With the development of ISO16890, it is crucial that we learn the difference between PM1 and PM2.5. Take a step into a virtual world to find out why Camfil believe ePM1 filtration is the future here.

For over 50 years Camfil has lead the way, striving to tackle air pollution and improve Indoor Air Quality in the quest to make clean air a human right.

Unlike dirty water, air pollution is not visible and therefore we are often unaware of how good or bad our indoor air quality is.
