Emory is currently using MERV 13 High capacity Bag filters on several of the larger lab buildings, including Atwood Chemistry Building. There are 3 advantages to these new filters.
- Saves fan energy through a lower pressure drop; it’s small at 59234 KW/yr.
- Saves labor, as they last 1.5 yrs. Reducing about 4 trips by the PM crew.
- Landfill avoidance of 5 cubic yards and lowers carbon footprint by 368,634 lbs per year!
And that’s just for one unit! Emory has placed over 10 of these new filters on buildings across campus so far.
