    Notes: The development of odor emission rates from EU6 classified glass fiber bag filters was studied in four air-handling units (AHU), and emissions from the same kind of filters with EU3 classified polyester prefilters were studied in two units. The filters were loaded in six AHU in downtown Helsinki. The pressure drop was measured, and the odors of the filters were evaluated by a trained panel under laboratory conditions (T = 20°C, face velocity 1.0 m/s) every sixth week. The odor emissions of simultaneous atmospheric dust samples were also studied. The odor emissions of the filters rose during the first three months to a level where every third person would be dissatisfied. The emissions from coarse prefilters were similar to those from the more efficient filters without prefilters, and the emissions of the main filters were significantly lower if used with prefilters. This result indicates that the prefilters effectively protected the fine filters from odor-causing particles. The results of tests made with atmospheric samples agree with this result. Relative odor emissions were the highest in coarse fractions (〉 10.0 μm). The pressure drop increased with the particle mass collected on the ventilation filter, but it did not correlate well with the odor emission of the filter. Thus, pressure drop alone is not an adequate criterion for changing supply air filters when hygienic aspects are a concern.

    Notes: The hygienic properties of two types of processing oils used in the manufacture of galvanised metal air ducts mere investigated. One of the oils was based on mineral oil and the other on vegetable oil. Evaporation of the oil emulsions from the galvanized metal surface was followed for ten months, after which the water-binding capacity of the residues was measured in increasing and decreasing RH at the range of 75-100%. The potential of processing oil residues to act as nutrients for fungi was tested with Penicillium brevi-compactum in the laboratory. The odour emission of oil residues was evaluated with the aid of a trained panel for eight months. After the ten months, the residue of mineral-oil- and vegetable-oil-based products was 60% and 79% of the original amount, respectively. Both oils were able to absorb water but desorption of the water from vegetable-oil-based products was delayed, thus increasing the risk of fungal growth. The residues of both oils provided sufficient nutrients for fungal growth. The odour emissions from the oil residues were high and that of vegetable oil tended also to increase. To attain high indoor air quality, duct manufacturing methods which do not leave residues should be developed.
