Why Join ASHRAE

ASHRAE Membership

ASHRAE membership is open to any person associated with heating, ventilation, air conditioning or refrigeration. ASHRAE is unique because its membership is drawn from a wide range of disciplines relating to the HVAC&R field. Approximately 51,000 individuals from more than 100 nations belong to the Society.

Discounts on Publications

ASHRAE members earn 15% off publications. Hundreds of titles are available including the complete collection of ASHRAE Standards including 90.1, 62.1 and 189.1.

MTG.EEC Energy Efficient Classification of General Ventilation Air-Cleaning Devices

Scope

MTG.EEC will coordinate the related activities of TCs and non-TC groups and provide guidance to the ASHRAE membership, manufacturers and end-users on how to classify air filter energy efficiency and the key factors affecting energy usage associated with the proper use of air filtration in new and existing buildings. MTG.EEC is concerned with the nature of particulate and gaseous contaminants, the means of removing unwanted contaminants from the air, the effectiveness, energy efficiency, life cycle cost and sustainable operation of such air cleaning equipment but does not include UVC devices for use in air handling units or air ducts to inactivate airborne microorganisms, which are the province of TC2.9 and SPC 185.

Current Projects, Goals, or Objectives

  • Use Existing ASHRAE 52.2 Test Data to Calculate Energy Usage over the Expected Life of the Filter
  • Review EuroVent Energy Efficiency Classification Method of Air Filters
  • Review methods Used by Manufacturers
  • Review 90.1’s methods on energy saving and cost models
 

Accomplishments to Date

  • Use Existing ASHRAE 52.2 Test Data to Calculate Energy Usage over the Expected Life of the Filter
  • Method (Watts/gram ) has been developed and presented at 9/12 committee meeting
  • Next step is to see how much this Watts/gram value changes with different filter styles, different efficiencies, and a combined prefilter with final filter.
  • Review EuroVent Energy Efficiency Classification Method of Air Filters
  • The method has been approved by EuroVent. It was reviewed on 9/12 committee meeting
  • How does the EuroVent 4/11 Classification system differentiate between various filters?
    • Methods Used by Manufacturers
  • 3M’s position: they do not use an energy rating system.  Their focus is on total cost of ownership
  • Camfil Farr Method (no presentation on 9/12 committee meeting, probably will be on the next web meeting)
    • Review 90.1’s methods on energy saving and cost models
  • 90.1’s references were distributed
  • The methods will be reviewed on the next web meeting.
 

Meetings

MTG.EEC typically meets on Tuesday mornings from 8-10 during Society meetings. Web/Conf. call meetings are also scheduled every two-three months typically.
