Industry Association continues its ‘HVACR Leadership Workshop’ series with next live webinar

Quality control, product performance and safety are topics which are being focused on more and more in a world driven by price competitiveness. Although manufacturers run stringent quality control and performance tests in-house, third-party testing and certification serves as a means to verify and ensure that the data published by manufacturers is unbiased and attested. During this webinar, the seminars aim to deliver an understanding of the principles behind certification as a means to promote trust and reliability in the context of product performance and safety.

A new tool to simulate the indoor particulate matter pollution in relation to the chosen supply air filter quality

In this technical paper, Mr Tobias Zimmer, VP – Product Management and International Standards at Camfil shares some insight on Comfort IAQ. Many factors are rather well known for their ability to create a good indoor air climate, but when it comes to airborne particles, there is no great deal of documentation to consult and set requirements. Nor are there much of other specific guidelines. The new, product-neutral and free online calculation tool “Comfort IAQ” helps to understand the mechanisms behind IAQ and gives a good indication on what would be the impact on indoor air quality (IAQ) due to air exchange, outdoor air environment, air filter selection and building envelope characteristics
