Understanding ASHRAE standard 199 testing for dust collectorsMarch 15, 2023
The best way to compare dust collectors’ performance.
ASHRAE developed the Standard 199-2016 to test the performance of a dust collection system under real-world conditions. Testing involves six stages that measure a dust collector’s emissions, pressure drop, and compressed air usage. In this short animated video you will learn:
- Why the ASHRAE 199 testing process is a better measure of filter efficiency than MERV ratings
- What's included in the ASHRAE 199 testing process
- How testing results help you select the ideal dust collector for your application
