Description

This Standard specifies requirements for the classification, construction and performance testing of fully disposable high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters. It includes those filters known as ultra low penetration air (ULPA) filters but excludes medium efficiency particulate air filters (MEPA). An appendix provides requirements for structural strength testing.

Scope

Notes:

  1. Requirements for air filters for use in general ventilation and airconditioning are given in AS 1324.1 and AS 1324.2. Although MEPA filters are not within the scope of this Standard it is recognized that there are similarities of construction, and relevant parts of this Standard may be applied to MEPA filters by buyer/seller agreement.
  2. The filters covered by this Standard achieve very low sub-micrometre particulate levels for the protection of people, products, and processes from potential contamination. Common applications are cleanrooms for control and protection of pharmaceutical and electronic processes, operating theatres, clean workstations, nuclear containment facilities, and biological containment facilities including safety cabinets.
  3. Purchasing guidelines are provided in Appendix A. Handling and shipment guidelines are provided in Appendix B.
