  19. 19. Sizing the Air Cleaner <ul><li>More Air Changes Means Air is Filtered More Frequently </li></ul><ul><li>General Air Quality- </li></ul><ul><li>Room size in feet (H x W x D) = Xcu.ft. </li></ul><ul><li>720 CFM (Air Volume) = number of room air </li></ul><ul><li>Room Size x cu. Ft. changes per minute </li></ul><ul><li>Example- </li></ul><ul><li>Room size = 8 ft. x 10 ft. x 12 ft. = 960 cu.ft. </li></ul><ul><li>720 CFM = .75 room air </li></ul><ul><li>960 cu.ft. changes per minute </li></ul><ul><li>.75 x 60 minutes = 45 room air changes / hour </li></ul>
  20. 20. Chemical Testing Division <ul><li>Sentry Air offers Chemical Testing to ensure that our units work efficiently with the customer’s particular chemical. </li></ul>Once we receive a chemical sample from the customer, our in-house Chemical Engineer runs a filter efficiency test using one of our units.
