Indoor Air Quality – Opportunities Over 5.5 million unitary air conditioners were sold in 2004 Almost 1.9 million heat pumps were sold in 2004 Over 3.5 million gas forced air systems were sold in 2004 Residential HVAC shipments up 8% in 2004 Over 1.9 million new homes built in 2004 New housing starts projected to increase in 2005 Less than 8% of fan coils and furnaces are sold with premium IAQ solutions
Indoor Air Quality – Market Drivers We take over 20,000 breaths and breathe in excess of 350 million particles everyday! According to the EPA, each day a person breathes in 2 teaspoons of pollutants. EPA studies have shown that the air inside our homes and workplaces is 10 – 100 times more polluted than outside air. Indoor Air Quality Index published daily.
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 asthma – 22 Million suffer from hay fever and allergic rhinitis – Over 12 Million from bronchitis Over 35 million suffer from Lung Disease Over $6 Billion/Year is spent on treatment of respiratory ailments.

Controlling Indoor Air Quality Source control Ventilation Filtration
Air Contaminants A grain of beach sand80 to 2000 Microns A strand of human hair30 to 200 Microns Pollen 10 to 100 Microns Bacteria0.3 to 3.0 Microns Tobacco smoke0.01 to 1.0 Microns Virus 0.3 Microns
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.
Indoor Air Quality – Industry Test Methods Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) DOP (Dioctyl Pthalate) ASHRAE 52.1 – 1992 – Weight Arrestance – Dust Spot ASHRAE 52.2 – 1999 (MERV)
Indoor Air Quality – Industry Test Methods (cont.) Clean Air Delivery Rate – Designed for portable room air cleaners. – Measures overall effectiveness of the air cleaner (air flow/efficiency/natural decay). – Rated on pollen, dust and smoke. DOP (Dioctyl Pthalate): – MIL Standard 282 – Designed for cleanroom type filters. – Measures penetration of 0.3/0.12 micron particles through HEPA/ULPA filters.
Indoor Air Quality – Industry Test Methods (cont.) ASHRAE 52.1 – Weight Arrestance – Determines initial pressure drop across filter. – Determines dust holding capacity of filter. – Efficiency determined by calculating the percent removed by weight of the test dust (Arizona road dust and carbon black). – Designed for low efficiency filters. ASHRAE 52.1 – Atmospheric Dust Spot – Uses outdoor air for testing. – Efficiency determined by comparing staining of test paper upstream and downstream of the filter. – Efficiency based on the average efficiency over the useful life of the filter. – Designed for high efficiency filters.
Indoor Air Quality – Industry Test Methods (cont.) ASHRAE 52.2 – Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) – Efficiency rating based on clean filter – Designed to assist with the application of filters – Measures efficiency in three different particle ranges: 10.0 Microns and above 3.0 – 10.0 microns 0.3 – 3.0 microns
Trion Air Bear Supreme High Efficiency Media Air Cleaners
Dirty AirPre-FilterMain Filter Clean Air Media Air Cleaners: How They Work StrainingImpingement Interception Diffusion Brownian Effect
Air Bear Supreme Uses a combination of four filtering principles, impingement, interception, diffusion, and straining Available in three sizes, two air flow capacities –16H x 25W x 7 ¼D – 1400 CFM –20H x 20W x 7 ¼D – 1400 CFM –20H x 25W x 7 ¼D – 2000 CFM Cabinet knockouts allow upgrade on Electronic Air Cleaner One piece wrap around, 20 gauge cabinet supports 400 lb. furnace Pearl White powder-coated cabinet finish
Air Bear Supreme (cont.) Extended surface,17-pleat filter design –Minimizes pressure drop rated air flow) –Maximizes dust holding capacity (190 grams) –Increases filter life 100% electrostatically charged synthetic fibers –Enhances filter performance –Minimizes initial pressure drop –Helps prevent microbial growth Gaskets to prevent air by-pass MERV 8 efficiency
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. The Trion filter has perfect pleat alignment due to design of support fingers on the upstream (air entry) side of the filter. Pleat Alignment Comparison
Air Bear Supreme with Specially-Designed Support Fingers Trions Internal Support Fingers are designed with dual edge tabs which hold the support finger in place during operation, even under tough conditions.
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.
Air Bear Right Angle Ideal for installations requiring a 90 Degree Adapter. Built-in Duct Work/Adjustable Duct Opening –eliminates the need for field forming transition –significantly reduces installation time Space-Saving Design - saves 6 to 8 as compared to competitive products with 90 degree turns.
Air Bear Right Angle (cont.) Right / Left hand installation Works as Turning Vanes - for even distribution of air across the filter 2000 CFM Uses the same filter as the Air Bear Supreme 2000 Outside Dimensions: 15 1/2W x 24 3/4D x 23 3/8H
Why the Air Bear Supreme? 5-10 times more efficient than traditional 1 throw away filters Effectively removes particulate such as mold spores, pollen, and dust Protects coils Fail safe product Replacement media business
Trion HE Plus High Efficiency Electronic Air Cleaners
Electronic Air Cleaners: How They Work Clean AirDirty Air Ionizer: 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.

Ozone(O 3 ) Oxygen(O 2 ) with an extra oxygen atom –Ozone is heavier than air –Ozone is highly unstable –Ozone dissipates quickly with air flow How is ozone produced? –Ozone is by-product of high voltage –Ozone is created when sun rays react with air pollution(automobile exhaust)
Ozone Production in Trion Air Cleaners Portable Units –< 26 parts per billion Ductmount units (at rated air flow) –6 parts per billion on high –5 parts per billion on medium –3 parts per billion on low –< 2 parts per billion with activated charcoal filter UL Allowable Limits –50 parts per billion
Single Pass Ozone Test Ozone pick-up tube was 2" downstream of unit. Ozone pick-up tube was 3 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.
