2020-10-28

Here is a summary table of the filters performance classification under the European standard EN779:2012. Concerning Particulate air filters for general ventilationmust meet.

The EN 779 Standard is based on laboratory test (on condition of test aerosols and dusts). Thus the results certainly may be different with actual specific applications. But we can use it as a reference for sure.

The EN 779 Standard laboratory test principal results are as follows:


>Gravimetric arrestance efficiency for synthetic dust

>Efficiency: corresponds to the number-referenced fractional collection efficiency for 0.4 μm particles of the synthetic test aerosol

>Pressure Drop

>Dust holding capacity for synthetic dust
