Particulate Matter – PM 10 Filters

Particulate Matter PM10 Filters for Improved Indoor Air Quality

Exposure to high concentration urban background and roadside particulate pollutants including PM10 can have a serious impact on human health*

The Air Quality Standards Regulations 2010 requires that concentrations of PM10 must not exceed an annual average of 40µ/m3

Our high efficiency, moisture-resistant PM 10 filters are available in a range of standard sizes and are designed to deliver effective indoor air mitigation solution for PM 10.

Clean Air Strategy 2019

The Clean Air Strategy 2019 (Section 1.3) focuses on UK emission reductions for
5 major air pollutants including PM10 and Nitrogen Oxides, with
national emissions targets being set for 2020 and 2030.

High Performance NOx (NO and NO2) Filtration Systems

The EU Directive 2008/50/EC (the CAFE Directive) European Union Air Quality and Clean Air for Europe 2008 also set stringent levels for Nitric Oxides (NO) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) in designated Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs).

This legislation may have compliance issues for Planners, Developers and Mechanical Consultants when they are working on indoor air filtration projects where the external air quality (NO2) being entrained into the building exceeds an annual mean of 40ug/m³

Typical Applications

  • Residential Schemes
  • Schools, Colleges and Universities
  • Commercial Buildings

NOx (NO and NO2) Mitigation Filter Systems

AAC NITROSORB uses breakthrough technology to assist developers in compliance with EU regulations on indoor air NO2 emissions, playing a key role in delivering effective NOx mitigation for indoor air projects in new build and retro schemes across the UK.

The AAC NITROSORB Filter System is suitable for use in MVHR Units, Horizontal and Vertical Airflows and Centralised Air Handling Plant and gives planners, developers, and mechanical consultants “one stop” access to a full range of effective and sustainable NOx mitigation solutions.

The flexible nature of the AAC NITROSORB Filter System enables PM10 or PM2.5 particulate pre-filter to be easily incorporated enabling compliance with the particulate aspect of the legislation.

The NITROSORB Filter System is available in a full suite of standard sizes, with a Free of Charge design service is available for bespoke projects.
