3 Indoor Air Quality – Opportunities Over 5.5 million unitary air conditioners were sold in 2004Almost 1.9 million heat pumps were sold in 2004Over 3.5 million gas forced air systems were sold in 2004Residential HVAC shipments up 8% in 2004Over 1.9 million new homes built in 2004New housing starts projected to increase in 2005Less than 8% of fan coils and furnaces are sold with premium IAQ solutions
4 Indoor Air Quality – Market Drivers We take over 20,000 breaths and breathe in excess of350 million particles everyday!According to the EPA, each day a person breathes in 2teaspoons of pollutants.EPA studies have shown that the air inside our homesand workplaces is 10 – 100 times more polluted thanoutside air.Indoor Air Quality Index published daily.
5 Indoor Air Quality – Market Drivers (cont.) Over 50 Million Americans suffer from allergies and asthma.Of this total:Over 20 Million have chronic asthma (2.1 million are children)Over 8 Million children suffer from a mild form of asthma22 Million suffer from hay fever and allergic rhinitisOver 12 Million from bronchitisOver 35 million suffer from Lung DiseaseOver $6 Billion/Year is spent on treatment of respiratory ailments.

8 Air Contaminants A grain of beach sand 80 to 2000 Microns A strand of human hair 30 to 200 MicronsPollen to 100 MicronsBacteria to 3.0 MicronsTobacco smoke to 1.0 MicronsVirus ≤ 0.3 Microns
10 Airborne Particulate Settling Rates This chart shows time required for a particle released at 5 foot level to settle to the floor in stagnate air.
11 Indoor Air Quality – Industry Test Methods Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR)DOP (Dioctyl Pthalate)ASHRAE 52.1 – 1992Weight ArrestanceDust SpotASHRAE 52.2 – 1999 (MERV)
12 Indoor Air Quality – Industry Test Methods (cont.) Clean Air Delivery RateDesigned for portable room air cleaners.Measures overall effectiveness of the air cleaner (airflow/efficiency/natural decay).Rated on pollen, dust and smoke.DOP (Dioctyl Pthalate):MIL Standard 282Designed for cleanroom type filters.Measures penetration of 0.3/0.12 micron particles throughHEPA/ULPA filters.
13 Indoor Air Quality – Industry Test Methods (cont.) ASHRAE 52.1 – Weight ArrestanceDetermines initial pressure drop across filter.Determines dust holding capacity of filter.Efficiency determined by calculating the percent removed byweight of the test dust (Arizona road dust and carbon black).Designed for low efficiency filters.ASHRAE 52.1 – Atmospheric Dust SpotUses outdoor air for testing.Efficiency determined by comparing staining of test paperupstream and downstream of the filter.Efficiency based on the average efficiency over the useful life ofthe filter.Designed for high efficiency filters.
14 Indoor Air Quality – Industry Test Methods (cont.) ASHRAE 52.2Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV)Efficiency rating based on clean filterDesigned to assist with the application of filtersMeasures efficiency in three different particle ranges:10.0 Microns and above3.0 – 10.0 microns0.3 – 3.0 microns
15 Trion Air Bear SupremeHigh Efficiency Media Air Cleaners
16 Media Air Cleaners: How They Work Dirty AirPre-FilterMain FilterClean AirStrainingImpingementDiffusionInterceptionBrownian Effect
17 Air Bear SupremeUses a combination of four filtering principles, impingement, interception, diffusion, and strainingAvailable in three sizes, two air flow capacities16”H x 25”W x 7 ¼”D – 1400 CFM20”H x 20”W x 7 ¼”D – 1400 CFM20”H x 25”W x 7 ¼”D – 2000 CFMCabinet knockouts allow upgrade on Electronic Air CleanerOne piece wrap around, 20 gauge cabinet supports 400 lb. furnacePearl White powder-coated cabinet finish
18 Air Bear Supreme (cont.) Extended surface,17-pleat filter designMinimizes pressure droprated air flow)Maximizes dust holding capacity (190 grams)Increases filter life100% electrostatically charged synthetic fibersEnhances filter performanceMinimizes initial pressure dropHelps prevent microbial growthGaskets to prevent air by-passMERV 8 efficiency
19 Pleat Alignment Comparison The Trion filter has perfect pleat alignment due to design of support fingers on the upstream (air entry) side of the filter.Pleat alignment on competitive filter is poor because there are are no support fingers upstream.Poor pleat alignment will result in higher pressure drop after installation than literature shows and shorter filter lifecycles.
20 Air Bear Supreme with Specially-Designed Support Fingers Trion’s Internal Support Fingers are designed with dual edge “tabs” which hold the support finger in place during operation, even under tough conditions.
21 Leading Competitive Filter without Anchor Tabs on Support Fingers Competitive Filter has no tabs to secure the support fingers in place. This allows movement of the supports during shipping, handling, and operation. When the support fingers move, the pleats become misaligned.
22 Air Bear Right AngleIdeal for installations requiring a 90 Degree Adapter.Built-in Duct Work/Adjustable Duct Openingeliminates the need for field forming transitionsignificantly reduces installation timeSpace-Saving Design - saves 6” to 8” as compared to competitive products with 90 degree turns.
23 Air Bear Right Angle (cont.) Right / Left hand installationWorks as Turning Vanes - for even distribution of air across the filter2000 CFMUses the same filter as the Air Bear Supreme 2000Outside Dimensions: 15 1/2”W x 24 3/4”D x 23 3/8”H
24 Why the Air Bear Supreme? 5-10 times more efficient than traditional 1” throw away filtersEffectively removes particulate such as mold spores, pollen, and dustProtects coilsFail safe productReplacement media business
25 Trion HE PlusHigh Efficiency Electronic Air Cleaners
26 Electronic Air Cleaners: How They Work Dirty AirClean AirIonizer:High voltage ionization electrically charges airborne pollutants/particles such as dust, bacteria, smoke, mold spores and pollen.Forever Filter/Collector:Works like a powerful magnet to attract and retain charged particles. This keeps harmful irritants from being constantly re-circulated into the home. Washable and never needs to be replaced.

36 Ozone(O3) Oxygen(O2) with an extra oxygen atom How is ozone produced? Ozone is heavier than airOzone is highly unstableOzone dissipates quickly with air flowHow is ozone produced?Ozone is by-product of high voltageOzone is created when sun rays react with air pollution(automobile exhaust)
37 Ozone Production in Trion Air Cleaners Portable Units< 26 parts per billionDuctmount units (at rated air flow)6 parts per billion on high5 parts per billion on medium3 parts per billion on low< 2 parts per billion with activated charcoal filterUL Allowable Limits50 parts per billion
38 Single Pass Ozone Test Ozone pick-up tube was 2" downstream of unit. Each reading was taken after 5 minutes at CFM & output setting.Original tests were conducted with cells & prefilters only.An additional test was ran with the addition of carbon post filters. The test started under the worst case scenario; the lowest CFM and the highest power output setting. The result was less than 2 ppb of ozone. The test was stopped at this point since all other settings would give the same results or less.
