This one hour presentation will provide attendants with a better understanding of molecular filtration, how it works and why it is important. The foundation to understanding molecular filtration requires the knowledge of the source of molecular pollutants and how to reduce them in an effective and efficient manner. An essential component to air quality requires the ability to distinguish how efficient the molecular filters are and what process is used to reduce the outdoor pollutants when being circulated through a building given a certain application. The application of molecular filters range anywhere from corrosive control for museums to industrial exhaust for military applications. Certain applications require protection from corrosive pollutants, molecular filter are an efficient way to help protect certain artifact and or lives from the corrosive atmosphere. Knowing when and where to use molecular filtration is not always easy, this course will provide that knowledge leading to an effective, clean, energy saving system.


  1. Understand how molecular filters works and applications where they best fit.
  2. Understand why to use molecular filters.
  3. Choose when to use molecular filters.
  4. Describe the requirements of ASHRAE 62.1 section 6.1.1.
