Field test method for the easurement of filter efficiency (NT TR 531)

NT TR 531

  • Ventilation filters are normally classified with the aid of standard laboratory tests. The most well known standards are the European standard EN779 (Anon. 1993) and the corresponding American standard ASHRAE 52.2 (Anon. 1999). Standard tests, however, produce information which may be insufficient for estimating the true filter performance.
