THE ELECTROMEDIA MODEL 35F(A)
TESTING METHODS AND EFFICIENCY - CASSETTE MEDIUM

The test method used to rate performance of these high efficiency cassette mediums is the 0.3 micron DOP* test, which is the industry standard test for high efficiency filters.

Others may use the ASHRAE 52076 test to rate their efficiency. However this test was not designed to accurately measure small particle collection efficiency. Any unit tested to ASHRAE 52076 is not high efficiency.

Research proves that 99% of all airborne particles are invisible and less than one micron is size. Bacteria, viruses, tobacco smoke, common atmospheric dust, smog, pollen and mould spores - all affect asthma sufferers, non-smokers and sensitive equipment. Only high efficiency can effectively remove the invisible, very fine pollutants causing today's indoor air quality problems.

The Electromedia Model 35F(A) breaks the air flow barrier for high efficiency by scrubbing 8.5m' (300ft') of air per minute - not possible until now, for a unit its size and collection efficiency.

Total Effectiveness Factor = Collection Efficiency x Flow Rate.
The higher the number, the better the equipment performs.
