Test results of smoke testing at our in-house testing display.
The small particles (BLUE) are for greater than 1⁄2 (.5) micron. The large particles (RED) are greater than 2.5 micron.
NOTE: This period (.) is 100 microns!!!
The units displayed are particles per 1/100 cubic foot. (about a cubic inch).
1 - Smoke is admitted into the test chamber with the filter electronics turned off. This simulates the standard fiberglass filters installed on most HVAC systems.
2 - The particle count is slowly reduced much like a Standard Filter as the particles settle to the testing display surfaces.
3 - At 17,000 particles the electronics are Turned On.
4 - Note the rapid drop in particle count Our Filter.
Testing was performed on five homes and one medical office complex with two floors. The results above indicate real world environments.
