CAMFIL FARR INTRODUCES A GUIDE TO THE REVISED ASHRAE FILTER
Riverdale, New Jersey – May 1, 2008 – Air filter manufacturer Camfil Farr has introduced a guide to the
revised ASHRAE Filter Testing Standard The New Air Filter Standard, ASHRAE 52.2-2007, Today’s
Guide for “Real-Life” Product Performance. The guide details the committee-ratified changes and
provides some historical information as to why the changes were necessary.
In today’s air quality-conscious world it is important that filter users have a simple system to establish
whether a filtration product will meet efficiency requirements at installation and throughout the life of the
filter. The Standard introduces MERV-A, a new value, which will provide an indication as to a filter’s
ability to maintain efficiency over time. The guide also details other standard revisions such as the
reintroduction of dust holding capacity and arrestance into the Standard.
The guide includes some references to some key studies on air quality and long-term filter testing that led
to the adoption of the revisions. Although the new Standard will not be in printed form until later this year,
this 10-page pamphlet will provide guidance so users may be prepared for the new filter evaluation
methods and apply their knowledge as the filter industry adapts to the changes.
