AIR CLEANERS SIZING TABLE
for Ambient Air Cleaning
The term "ambient air cleaning", as used on this website, is the process of cleaning all the
indoor air in the room or facility where there is an air quality issue. This is in contrast to the
term "source capture" which refers to capturing air contaminants at their source of emission
before they disperse throughout the room or facility air.

The objective is to provide enough air cleaning capacity so as to clean the air at least as
fast, if not faster, than the contaminants are being emitted into the air. In other words, the
faster contaminants are emitted into the air, the faster the air needs to be cleaned. This
translates into cleaning the air more frequently or more times, each hour. The rule of
thumb typically used to match the air cleaning capacity to the air contaminant severity
and ensure that the air cleaner(s) do not become overwhelmed by air contaminant
emissions is illustrated in the following table.

Air Cleaner Sizing "Rule of Thumb"


Severity of Typical Frequency of
Air Contamination Environment Air Filtration
filter all the air
Light Residential
4-6 times each hour
filter all the air
Moderate Commercial
8 times each hour
filter all the air
Heavy Industrial
10 times each hour
filter all the air
Critical Medical Isolation
12 times each hour

The frequency of air filtration is commonly known as air changes per hour (ACH). The level
of air cleaning capacity is usually designated in terms of cubic feet of air cleaned per minute
(CFM) or delivered1 CFM. The amount of CFM required from the air cleaning equipment
depends on the volume of air to be cleaned in the facility and the ACH required to deal with
the air contamination severity.

How to determine total delivered airflow needed


The table below provides an indication of the volume of air to allocate to each air
cleaner in order to achieve the desired ACH. For instance, if it is determined that an
ACH of 8 facility air filtrations per hour is necessary, and, the volume of air in the
facility to be cleaned is 3,750 cubic feet, then the desired amount of filtered airflow
from the air cleaning equipment is 500 CFM. Once this CFM number is determined, it
is possible to select appropriate equipment to deal with the air quality issues. This
CFM number represents the total amount of air cleaning CFM required, not
necessarily the amount of CFM for one particular air cleaner. In other words, in the
example just given, 500 CFM is needed, but if the air purifier being considered will
only provide 250 CFM, then two air purifiers are necessary to provide the required
amount of total filtered airflow.
How to determine the area size a single air cleaner will filter
If you have a particular air cleaner in mind and would like to know the size area that
it will clean, first determine the delivered airflow in CFM for the air cleaner from it's
specifications. This is generally available from the product literature. Scroll down
the left column of the following table to the CFM figure closest but less than the
delivered airflow of the selected machine. Next, look at the volume of air
corresponding to the CFM in the table. Divide the volume by the ceiling height of the
room to determine the area in square feet.

Notes:
1
IMPORTANT WARNING: Delivered CFM is the rate of air flow through the air cleaner with
all filters installed. Beware, some manufacturers cite 'free flow' CFM or CFM '@0"wg',
which refer to the performance of the motor and blower combination only, without any air
resistance due to the filters. Although we only use delivered airflow values, with other
vendors, you should always confirm that the figures are delivered and not free flow as
nothing should be left to chance.
