Standard test dust
The DMT ASHRAE test dust is described in the ANSI / ASHRAE standard. This is used, for example, for filter testing in accordance with EN 779.
The DMT ASHRAE test dust consists of 72 % test dust A2, 23 % soot and 5 % cut cotton.
Transport and Storage
Partial segregation may occur during transport and storage. It is therefore recommended to homogenize the DMT ASHRAE Test Dust 52.1 & 52.2 before use, which can be achieved by mixing with a laboratory tumbler mixer. Please store in a dry and airtight original container.
In order to achieve reproducible quality, the raw materials and production are strictly controlled. The following quality controls are carried out:
Monitoring the particle size distribution of raw materials
Monitoring the particle size distribution of the end product
