CEN - EN ISO 10121-2

Test methods for assessing the performance of gas-phase air cleaning media and devices for general ventilation - Part 2: Gasphase air cleaning devices (GPACD)

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 April 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 50
ICS Code (Ventilation and air-conditioning systems): 91.140.30
scope:

This part of ISO 10121 aims to provide an objective test method to estimate the performance of any full size gas filtration device (GPACD) for general filtration regardless of media or technique used in the device. In fact, the goal of this part of ISO 10121 is to avoid relative the test data to internal parameters altogether. The benefit with this approach is that customers of GPACDs will be able to concentrate on price/performance and suppliers will have access to a normative and objective test standard that will not require the release of proprietary information or reverse engineering of the product.

To ensure objectivity for test equipment suppliers, no specific design of the test apparatus is specified. Instead requirements of apparatus properties and validation tests are specified. However, different design examples in present use are outlined. This part of ISO 10121 can also be used with technologies such as scrubbers, absorbers, non-sorptive devices or packed columns as long as they fit into the test apparatus, can be meaningfully judged by the method and are intended for general ventilation applications, both residential and non residential. Nuclear and military applications are specifically excluded.
