INTRODUCTION – 1 INTRODUCTION In 2018, we will compare apples with apples! ISO 16890; clarity about protection from particulate matter The time has come. After a transition period of 18 months, a new ISO16890 standard has been established worldwide. The classification of air filters based on the minimal efficiency of a filter measured on 0.4 µm particles, as was the case under EN779, is finally a thing of the past.
We now assess air filters based on the protection they offer against particulate matter, which is definitely not a luxury in this day and age! Healthy air is of vital importance In 2017 too, the European Commission referred to the air quality in Europe as alarming. Globally air pollution is by far the largest contributor to early death, according to the new research produced by The Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health. This form of pollution is linked to 6.5 million fatalities in 2015 (source CNN). One of the biggest culprits is particulate matter.
Researchers from various universities, including Utrecht University, showed that even a minimal amount of air pollution due to particulate matter increases the odds for lung cancer with about 20 percent. This proves once again how important it is to keep the air healthy in offices, commercial buildings and public buildings. Increasingly more organisations are convinced that maintenance of the air treatment unit and air distribution systems plays an essential role in this process. This includes a deliberate choice for air filters that offer the best protection against PM1 particulate matter.
Know what gets filtered (and what not) Thanks to the introduction of the new ISO16890 standard, we can make it much more accessible for clients to see to what extent certain filters offer protection against particulate matter. Should a filter capture 60% of all particles smaller than 1 micron, then we choose the ePM1 60% filter. Should 80% of those particles be filtered, then the ePM1 80% is the correct choice. The standard applies worldwide, so we can finally properly compare all products and show exactly what protection we can guarantee with our filters.
Onwards to even more transparency Offering protection from PM1 particulate matter is one of the priorities of AFPRO Filters. We have done so for 39 years and we will continue to do so. In addition, it is important that our filters have excellent performance regarding energy efficiency. We strive to manufacture filters that provide optimal air quality at the lowest possible cost and we look forward to the moment when the energy labels based on the new ISO16890 standard will be awarded. This will result in even more transparency in our industry, which we can only welcome.
We will finally start comparing apples with apples! Sincerely, Karel Bosschieter CEO

FILTRATION – 3 3 The air surrounding us comprises 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and 1% various gases and solid particles. This last component listed comprises such elements and compounds as noble gases, carbon dioxide, fine particles, salts and gas emissions from motor traffic and industry. Although one percent sounds like very little, it does determine whether the air quality is considered healthy or unhealthy. Although the operation of a filter may appear very simple in theory, filters are in fact highly complex products. The filter fibres have to allow sufficient air to pass through – without offering too much resistance – while also trapping harmful particles.
This is the strength of good filters.
Filters protect people A human being inhales and exhales some twenty kilograms of air daily. Twenty kilos! This is quite an impressive figure, particularly when one considers that a human being also consumes around one and a half kilos of food and two and a half kilos of water. People are inclined to pay close attention to what they eat and drink, while government bodies also issue dietary recommendations. It therefore appears only logical that we should devote greater attention to the quality of the air we breathe. How might airborne substances affect our performance and health? And what can we do to ensure the optimum quality of the air that we breathe? Fine particles are hazardous to human health During the past few years, increasing attention has been drawn to the hazards of fine particles; air pollution in the form of particles which are smaller than 10 microns.
Busy roads, industry, combustion engines and the bio industry are major sources of fine particles. The human body is poorly equipped to deal with fine particles. The nose and windpipe act as natural filters for relatively large particles – larger than 5 microns. However, smaller particles can penetrate deep into our lungs, where they may cause substantial damage to health. Children, the aged and people with respiratory complaints are particularly susceptible. The concentration of fine particles in the air can vary greatly from region to region and from one country to another. Sick building syndrome – source of problems People in the western world spend around 70% of their time indoors.
Countless health problems can consequently be attributed to ‘indoor conditions’. Air quality in the workplace is sometimes also far from perfect. This can cause sick building syndrome (SBS). Almost three quarters of cases of SBS can be attributed to the dust particles present within the premises. Common symptoms of SBS include listlessness, concentration and respiratory problems, headaches, drowsiness, skin and eye irritation and fatigue. Adequate air filtration is a relatively simple means of combating SBS and protecting people from its harmful effects.
AFPRO Filters’ range of appropriate products enables us to vouch for the air quality. Our sales staff are equipped to provide a suitable solution for a healthy indoor or outdoor climate in any circumstances. These applications are widely used in business premises, hotels and conference centres. Filters protect your operating processes Apart from protecting people, filters can also be used to guarantee the progress of operating processes. The applicable filter requirements naturally vary, depending on the type of operating process in question. AFPRO Filters can nevertheless provide a suitable filter, whatever the process.
Many of our products are ultimately destined for the nuclear industry, in gas turbines, in the field of semiconductor manufacturing and the pharmaceuticals sector.
Nuclear industry The nuclear filter industry plays an essential role in the global supply of energy and the military sector. Air filtration systems perform crucial roles in nuclear plants, such as power stations, fuel processing plants, research facilities and waste management. These nuclear air filters comply with the most stringent environmental standards, in terms of the requirements applicable for the minimisation of radioactive air pollution. Gas turbines The primary function of an air filter inlet system is to protect the gas turbine and other rotating machinery from pollution present in the ambient air.
Dust particles (> 5 μm) can cause erosion. Fine particles (submicron) contaminate the vanes, which has a detrimental effect on the performance of the gas turbine. A wellbalanced filter system is therefore crucial to optimum output. Semiconductor manufacturing Highly stringent standards are applicable in this industry. The products, which are often manufactured in clean rooms, are highly susceptible to disruption. The slightest level of pollution in the air – comprising even the most minute particles – can significantly raise the percentage of rejects from the production process. Prefilters, fine filters and HEPA filters ensure that the air present in the clean room is of the highest quality.
Pharmaceuticals sector Poor air quality during the execution of production processes in the pharmaceuticals sector can have far-reaching consequences. The contamination of drugs can affect their efficacy or render them altogether ineffective, which could naturally prove hazardous to health. The use of superior quality filters is therefore crucial if the production of medicines in a manufacturing plant is to proceed without complications.

4 – FILTRATION 4 THE PRINCIPLES OF AIR FILTRATION There are two basic types of air filter: Filters for solids and filters for gaseous particles. Both types have the same objective, to reduce the concentration of airborne particles. Gaseous particles can be filtered out by means of adsorption. Adsorption is brought about by London dispersion forces, or Van der Waal’s forces, which act between the molecules. These forces have similar properties to the forces of gravity acting between planets in the solar system.The activated carbon in these filters is capable of removing particles from the air by means of adsorption. Different types of carbon may be used, depending on the particular field of application. Further details of the active carbon filter can be found on page 97. There are four ways of capturing particles. The filter class, the particle size and the filter construction jointly determine the magnitude of the effects. Air filters may apply:
- the sieve effect
- the inertial mass effect
- the interception effect
- the diffusion effect. The sieve effect The sieve effect is one most commonly applied in air filters. The principle of the sieve effect is very simple: The particle is larger than the gap between the media fibers and therefore gets trapped. The inertial mass effect This filter principle is applied if the particles have substantial mass. The particle arrives at high velocity. Due to its mass, the particle collides with the media fiber, instead of being deflected with the airflow. The interception effect The fact that particles exert forces of attraction on one another is crucial to this filter principle. The larger media fibers attract the relatively small dust particles. Once the particles have been intercepted they remain stuck between the media fibers.
The diffusion effect Particularly small particles often pursue an irregular path. This phenomenon is referred to as Brownian motion. The path that the particles follow may digress from that of the airflow. Brownian motion increases the chances of the particle colliding with the media fibers. The various filter effects can be plotted on a graph, which clearly indicates the particle size on which each of the filtration principles has the greatest effect.

6 How can one establish, as the end-user, whether a filter will provide the envisaged air quality? Air filters are classified according to these standards: EN779:2012 (EU) and the new ISO 16890 (Global) for course and fine filters. The USA uses the ASHRAE 52.2 standard. The new ISO16890 standard now replaces both the EN779:2012 and ASHRAE 52.2 with one global standard, and there is the EN1822:2009 for HEPA and ULPA filters.
Filters that are tested for compliance with these standards naturally meet stringent requirements. During such tests, the filters are exposed to circumstances which indicate precisely how they will perform in practice. As the customer, it is a comforting thought to know that all the products AFPRO Filters supplies are compliant with these classifications. The filters are tested in both our own and independent laboratories. Furthermore, AFPRO Filters complies with the stringent requirements of the Eurovent certification program. This guarantees that the actual filter performance is in line with the specifications presented.
Further details of the Eurovent certification program can be found on page 9. EN779:2012, ISO 16890 and EN1822:2009 The EN779:2012 and ISO16890 standard are used for the classification of course and fine filters. EN779:2012 allocates course filters to the classes G1 to G4, and fine filters to the classes M5 to F9. This is based on the average efficiency of the filters.
The EN1822:2009 standard classifies HEPA and ULPA filters. In this case, MPPS efficiency is leading. The table contains detailed information on the European filter classifications. AFPRO Filters supplies test certificates with all HEPA and ULPA filters. You can therefore rest assured that the filter supplied is of suitable quality. However, we do recommend subsequent validation of the filters following installation, to ensure that they were not damaged during transport or fitting. The new ISO 16890 standard has been introduced at the end 2016.

7 MPPS MPPS stands for most penetrating particle size. This refers to the dimensions of those particles that are the most difficult to trap. It generally lies in the region of 0.1 to 0.2 microns (μm). The MPPS has to be established before subjecting a filter to tests. The overall efficiency and the local efficiency are then determined, depending on the filter class.

- EUROVENT CERTIFICATION – 9 9 AFPRO Filters complies with the stringent requirements applicable for Eurovent certification. Eurovent is the European association of air conditioning suppliers, which has developed a certification programme in cooperation with various air filter manufacturers. Eurovent’s aim in introducing certification is to promote fair competition in the filter sector. We are pleased to inform you of the benefits that this significant quality mark offers you. The Eurovent certificate is your guarantee
- that your air filters have been tested by independent laboratories
- that the filters correspond to the design specifications
- that the filters you purchase comply with the energy consumption levels stated.
Furthermore, Eurovent accreditation serves as a guarantee that all documents supplied together with your filter comply with the European standard. These documents include the product information contained in this catalogue, on our website and in user manuals. In short: The Eurovent quality mark vouches for safe air filters, which also provide excellent performance. The Eurovent certificate is applicable to all our bag filters, compact filters and panel filters (M5 to F9) tested in accordance with the EN 779:2012 standard. The global quality of our air filters are measured according the ISO 16890 standard for coarse and fine filters.
Object of the certificate The object of the Eurovent certification programme is to enable the comparison of air filters using an equivocal set of assessment criteria. By publishing the technical specifications of certified filters, Eurovent makes it easier for customers to choose. After all, they need no longer subject the products they intend buying to their own extensive comparison and performance assessments. As a customer, one can therefore select products manufactured by AFPRO Filters in the assurance that they are fully compliant with both the applicable specifications and the Eurovent requirements.
Independent test laboratories Eurovent-certified filters have been tested in two independent laboratories: SP in the Swedish city of Boras and VTT in Espoo, Finland. These are the sole ISO 17025 accredited laboratories in Europe, and therefore the only ones compliant with the standard. Furthermore, the tests in question are carried out ‘blind’: None of scientists involved knows which filter manufacturer supplied the products being tested. Eurovent applies a reference number only to the filters for its own records.
The Eurovent logo This logo offers you the assurance that your products have been subjected to an independent test process and that they have been meticulously assessed.
The customers of filter manufacturers authorised to display this logo need not have any worries whatsoever as to the quality of the products, as they have been meticulously assessed. With a view to guaranteeing continuously high quality, furthermore, Eurovent selects several filters at random each year, which it subjects to further inspection.
Further information The range of fine filters, compliant with the EN779 standard, is certified under number 09.10.433 and is presented in the folder containing certified air filters on the Eurovent certification website: www.eurovent-certification.com This website also contains information on the entire certification programme and the certification process completed by AFPRO.

It is therefore great news that a new global 'air filtrations’ standard ISO 16890 is introduced. ISO 16890 The new ISO 16890 standard has been introduced end 2016. More information about the ISO 16890 standard can be found at page 13 and on www.afprofilters.com Minimum Test Efficiency With the EN779:2012 standard a minimum test efficiency (MTE) was introduced for fine filters. During the EN779 performance test, the filters have to reach a minimal test efficiency. This MTE, tested on particles of 0.4 micron, is set for fine filters to: F7 > 35% F8 > 55% F9 > 70% Direct effect of the MTE is that electrostatic synthetic filters will receive a lower classification as they have a lower efficiency after losing their electrostatic load EN779:2012 & ISO 16890
ENERGY LABELS – 11 11 Energy labels The Eurovent energy labels are used as from the 1st of January 2012 by all Eurovent members with their M5 till F9 filters. Convenient for you, cause this enables you to select the desired energy classification and its corresponding usage. The energy labels only relate to those filters that are in accordance with the EN779:2012 and that are in the range G4 till F9 with a nominal debit of 3400m3/h. The energy label can be found on the quotation, the boxes, the filter frame, our website and catalogue.
Classification Filters in the range G4 till M5-F9 all have their own energy consumption determined by the applied dust concentration.
The G4 filters are charged with 350g ASHREA dust, M5 and M6 with 250g ASHREA dust and the F7-F9 filters with 100g ASHREA dust. These quantities of ASHREA dust are determined based on a predicted dust amount dealt with by an average air handling unit. After the filters are charged with the standard dust amount, the energy labels are determined bases upon there theoretical energy consumption. The labels are classified A to E. An A label being the most energy friendly.
The calculation The energy consumption is determined using the following equation: E(kWh) = q × Δp × t η × 1000 In which: q = airflow (m3/s) Δp = pressure drop (Pa) t = operating time (hours) η = fan efficiency The equation learns us that filters with a large filter surface are more energy economical than filters with a smaller filter surface. This usually also count for products with a high dust holding capacity. A bag filter will therefore always perform better than a panel filter. Advantages Direct savings The energy label will provide information on the energy usage of the filter. The total cost of filtration are for 80% determined by energy cost.
The better the energy label on the product (low energy consumption) the lower the energy cost during the total lifetime of the filter. Recognize an energy efficient filter directly.
Thanks to the introduction of the energy labels everybody can determine an energy efficient filter at sight. Sustainable entrepreneurship and energy saving have been simplified. Guaranteed performance The energy labels are independent certified by the Eurovent commission. This means that the filter performance is guaranteed. Manufacturers that are not part of the Eurovent committee are not entitled to use these energy labels. These producers use other labels which are not tested by Eurovent and therefore not have an independently tested certified performance. Please note this when you make your purchase.

12 12 – NEW ISO NORM
13 NEW ISO16890 STANDARD – 13 NEW ISO16890 STANDARD Introduction The ISO 16890 standard is the new global standard for testing and classification of air filters, and replaces the existing EN779:2012 norm.
This new ISO 16890 standard is a big change in the way air filters are evaluated. This new ISO 16890 test standard for air filters has been published in December 2016. Why a new filtration norm? The new ISO16890 test method shifts the focus on filtration performance to the classes of particulate matter size (PM) and is therefore a much more realistic test criteria than the theoretical EN779:2012.
What is different? This means that with the new ISO16890 norm filter efficiencies will be determined based on particulate matter size classes PM1, PM2.5, PM10 and ISO Coarse, which are also used as evaluation parameters by the WHO (World Health Organization) and other authorities. ACCORDING EN779 0,4 µm ACCORDING ISO 16890 Based on these parameters it will be easier for users to select the right air filter based on their requirements.

A prerequisite for each group is that a filter captures at least 50% of the appropriate particle size range. If a filter, for example, captures more than 50% of PM1 particles, it will be grouped as an ISO ePM1 filter. The respective efficiency is then reported, rounded in 5 % increments. Alongside fine dust filters, the new ISO standard also evaluates coarse dust filters as ISO coarse: that is, filters that capture less than 50 % PM10.
What does PM1 mean? PM1 means all Particulate Matter with size smaller than 1 micron (a thousandth of a millimetre), just to be clear: 1µ= 0.001mm 2.5µ= 0.0025mm 10µ= 0.01mm With the introduction of the new ISO16890 standard, actual operating conditions will be more effectively taken into account. Instead of considering only the particle size 0.4 microns (EN779:2012), as previously, a broad range between 0.3 microns and 10 microns will be used to determine separation efficiencies for particulate matter fractions PM10, PM2,5 and PM1 (ISO16890). In order for an air filter to be rated to PM1 or any of the other PM sizes it will need to demonstrate a minimum efficiency of 50% and this will be recorded incrementally to the closest 5% – so a filter performing at 66% to PM1 particles will be rated at ePM1 65%.
For coarse filters the new standard will include filters that capture less than 50% of particles in the PM10 range – these will be known as “ISO Coarse” and will detail their PM10 performance i.e. “PM Coarse 45%”.
- One global international standard
- The ISO16890 records their performance at a particle spectrum of 0.3 up to 10 microns (versus the EN779 test which qualified fine filter performance at 0.4 microns)
- Fractional efficiencies of the filter prior to and after IPA discharge of any electrostatic properties can be seen.

16 – ENERGY CONSUMPTION 16 Energy consumption is one of the main cost items related to air filtration. There is evidence that an average of seventy percent of the total cost of filtration can be attributed to energy consumption.
It is therefore important that one purchase air filters which offer energy savings. This enables one to save money while also reducing the burden on the environment. The purchase of inferior quality filters can ultimately entail both higher energy costs and increased replacement frequency.
Together with customers, AFPRO has succeeded in reducing the energy consumption involved in air filtration, often with notable results. Simple modifications of the filter configuration have proven to yield considerable energy savings, while continuing to provide the required air quality. AFPRO Filters views the manufacture of air filters with a low resistance as a spearhead. The lower the resistance, after all, the lower the energy costs. Research has shown that if the resistance of a filter is reduced by an average of 1 Pa, the costs of air filtration also decline by around 1 euro per annum.
This becomes clear from the model calculation below. The air treatment cabinet in the following example requires ten bag filters to achieve the envisaged air quality.
The energy costs can be calculated using the following equation. E (kWh) In which: q = airflow (m3/s) p= pressure drop (Pa) t = operating time (hours) = fan efficiency (0.6 – 0.7) Energy consumption may vary. Approx € 60 per year. It has been assumed that the fans are to run non-stop during the operating time of one year. The remaining data can be derived from the table above. These show that, in the event of fluctuating energy prices, the lower resistance yields savings on energy costs of over 600 euros. Even when the slightly higher purchase price of the filters is deducted from this sum, considerable savings are still made.
The message is therefore clear: When purchasing an air filter, one should consider not only the purchase price, but also the energy costs. AFPRO Filters would be pleased to advise you on such matters. Our sales staff and technicians collaborate in analysing the possibilities of cutting costs while maintaining air quality standards, by modifying the filter configuration.

We strictly distinguish between standard and special products, however. This enables us to supply standard products at particularly keen prices, while also supplying special products within in very short space of time. Sustainability AFPRO Filters considers sustainable manufacturing a matter of course. This implies that we make responsible use of raw materials, while also considering the environmental impact of such materials further along the production chain.
The majority of our products are manufactured using materials that can be safely and fully incinerated, while no harmful substances are emitted in the process. Moreover, AFPRO Filters devotes considerable attention to reducing the resistance of air filters. After all, this can considerably reduce energy consumption. Innovation AFPRO Filters has its own laboratories, where both incoming goods are inspected and finished products checked, before being dispatched to the customer. Our existing products are subjected to a continuous process of innovation. In addition, however, we regularly introduce new products, such as energy efficient filters.
Another of our innovative services is the analysis of your existing air filters: AFPRO Filters is capable of analysing the areas where you might implement improvements.

18 – AFPRO RESEARCH 18 AFPRO FILTERS LABORATORIES AFPRO Filters stands for quality, durability and innovation. In order to continue to guarantee our customers these important core values, AFPRO Filters has set up its own highly advanced laboratories. Here, research is carried out on a daily basis with a view to rendering our air filters more efficient and durable. AFPRO Filters monitors all products in accordance with the ISO 9001 quality assurance system. The raw materials, semi-manufactured and finished products are checked on the basis of the criteria that the quality system prescribes.
This helps vouch for the continuously high quality of our products.Research and development laboratory The staff in our R&D lab endeavour to develop new filter media and filtration techniques. For instance, the lab performs research into high quality, unbreakable synthetic fibres, which are progressively constructed by means of a multi-layering technique. This technique contributes to greater durability: The air resistance and therefore also the energy consumption of such filter media is lower. AFPRO Filters is Eurovent accredited in accordance with the Certify All programme. The Eurovent quality mark vouches for consistent quality. The added value that the accreditation offers is guaranteed by independent testing laboratories in Sweden and Finland. These labs perform regular ‘blind’ tests on all manufacturers’ filters for compliance with the stringent Eurovent standards. Further details of Eurovent certification can be found on page 9 of this catalogue. Activated carbon laboratory In addition to its R&D lab, AFPRO Filters has an activated carbon laboratory. Activated carbon is used to trap gaseous particles. In this laboratory, AFPRO carries out research into the adsorption capacity of various types of active carbon and filter media, in accordance with the applicable active carbon standards. The lab can also take samples for customers, which it subsequently uses to analyse the remaining service life or adsorption capacity of a filter. This analysis serves as the basis for recommendations concerning the filters to be used and the consequences in terms of air quality, energy consumption and costs. AFPRO FILTER SERVICES Our laboratory also serves as a customer service and expertise centre. It therefore also accommodates AFPRO Filter Services, where one can acquire a great deal of knowledge of air filtration, filter media, test standards and monitoring techniques. Furthermore, AFPRO Filters has its own EN779:2012 and ISO 16890 test ducts, which are used to test and verify the high quality of all product groups. As a customer, you may also opt to have filters tested in accordance with the latest ISO 16890 testing standards. A list of our services follows. Performing air measurements The knowledge we have acquired in our laboratories enables us to perform on-site air measurements. In the process, we can assess your entire filtration system’s compliance with the applicable standards. The test methods applied in the course of air measurements are listed below:
- Eurovent 4/10 - 1996 In situ determination of fractional efficiency of general ventilation filters.
ISO/CD 29462 Field testing of general ventilation filtration devices and systems for in-situ removal efficiency by particle size and resistance to airflow. Filter performance surveys Your used filters can be examined in our laboratory, to establish filter performance according to the EN779 2012 criteria (resistance – efficiency) and the new ISO 16890 standard, particle analysis and particle interception capacity. The findings of the survey are used as the basis to issue you, the customer, sound advice on the performance of your filter.
Calculating the actual costs Our laboratory also advises customers in making a conscious sustainable choice using the Filter Durability Model (FDM).
This model, which AFPRO Filters developed itself, provides insight into the actual costs per filter, per month. The FDM is based on the latest filter testing standards and the Eurovent energy label guidelines. Once the calculations have been performed, AFPRO Filters can inform you exactly which type of filter is best for your purposes, as well as the most energy efficient solution for your entire filtration system.
