Abstract: In recent decades there has been a growing concern about the quality of the air we breathe indoors. Air cleaners are integral part of commercial HVAC systems and widely used to control both particulate and gaseous pollutants in indoor spaces. Different fields of applications require different degrees of air cleaning effectiveness. Fiberglass pocket filters have been widely used in commercial air filtration. A study of high efficiency pocket type filters made out of ultrafine glass fibers were carried out. The relationship between media area and performance parameters such as media velocity and pressure drop was investigated. The effect of stitch line sealants on the consumption of power has given positive directions in our mission to reduce carbon footprint in future buildings.
