RADēCO tests EACH and EVERY batch of TEDA treated Carbon and Silver Zeolite that it manufactures with. We have always tested each batch the same way, each time. On TEDA carbon we test 1 to 7 CFM for CP-100/RL-100 and 1 to 5 CFM for CP-200/BG-300, 1 to 4 CFM for Silver Zeolite GY-130 Cartridges. Each batch of media tested is tested to the ASTM D-3803-1998 Sect 12 as a minimum! We tests each cartridge for an 18 hour prepurge and 168 hour prepurge as well as pressure drop for each flow rate.
Our competitors do either no testing, accept the carbon manufacturer’s testing (1 flow rate) or do a “historical” compilation of data. All of these are unacceptable to RADēCO’s standards. When you are called on to validate your collection efficiencies we’ll have the test results to give you the confidence you’ll need.
