Ventilation cleaning industry experts from the National Association of Air Duct Specialists UK (NAADUK) were invited to Jasun Envirocare factory to hold not only their regular membership meeting but to learn about the latest in filtration standards.
Air filter manufacturer Jasun Envirocare hosted NAADUK’s regional meeting at its Bridgwater factory and held a seminar on filtration standards and the types of filters to suit building use and application.
Members were given a presentation by Colin Hitch, technical director on the ISO16890 Air Filters for General Ventilation, which is a global international standard. The members learnt about air filters classification and energy performance. Jasun Envirocare is a member of the Eurovent Association which is driving legislation to meet the standards.
There was focus on PI particle size and how damaging particles can be to the human body, causing cancer and heart problems. Indoor air quality is a subject that NAADUK is championing and wants to educate not only the occupiers of a building but the building owners.
Colin Hitch also debated the advantages of using low energy filters, which are reportedly more efficient.
Peter Reid, president of NAADUK said: “Improving the technical knowledge of our members is of paramount importance. The professional presentation given by Jasun Envirocare will enable our members to give the correct advice to their clients.”
In attendance at the meeting were other organisations which have a working partnership with NAADUK including London Fire Brigade, via representative watch manager Michael Richardson.
He commented: “A truly interesting day, providing information on indoor air quality and filtration standards. Who knew there were so many different types of filters, with many being bespoke or handmade right here in the UK.
“As always, great work from NAADUK to provide insight and spread the knowledge of its members throughout the industry.”
Graham Bentley, MD of Jasun Envirocare took the members on tour of the factory. He stated: “I believe that we have imparted some valuable technical information both on indoor air quality as well as on the new ISO16890 Air Filters for General Ventilation Standard. I understand that the members enjoyed the full tour of our state of the art manufacturing and R&D test facilities.”
