Auto Cabin air filter

I just think it's funny that the common fix for IAQ in homes is fresh air from outside.. and now you're worried about too much fresh air infiltrating into your car, ruining IAQ.

Particulates and gases are two different problems, although both are IAQ concerns.

Fresh air dilutes CO2, VOCs and other gaseous pollutants generated inside homes.

Highway air has small diesel particles that's been shown to penetrate deep in longs and cause pulmonary & cardiovascular problems.

There's also brake, tar and tire particles, in addition to all the spores and pollen I'm allergic to.

Bringing in filtered fresh air can take care of both problems, whether it's in a home or a car.

 

 

 

 

http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/iaq/SchoolsGuide.shtm#HVAC_s

§297.5. Building Operation and Maintenance Guidelines.

     (a) Written preventive maintenance program. A written preventive maintenance program should be established for each public building to provide a healthy environment. The program should include procedures for the following.

          (1) HVAC Systems

               (A) Filters. A system filter change-out program should be developed and implemented. A filter upgrade program should be implemented if the filters do not meet the latest recommended efficiency of MERV 9 or higher. Some low capacity air handlers may only have sufficient capacity to utilize MERV 6 filters.

City resident Colette Hall said there are still too many questions. “The EPA says chloramines are safe,” she said. “But what will they say in 10 years?”


Water is a basic need for humans, yet the current supply of drinking water is tainted with dangerous contaminants, including prescription and over the counter drugs. In fact, many would argue that the American water supply isn’t safe at all, even according the government’s somewhat loose standards.

To date, the government does not require water treatment plants to test water for drugs, nor does it have safety limits in place for these particular contaminants, so consumers must take matters into their own hands to ensure that they are not drinking medications. With the new GE filter, now they can.

Craig  --Bosch Technical Services Department oil filter --  1-800-848-3783


Key Features
Bosch Activated Charcoal Filters can trap close to 100% of airborne contaminants and foul-smelling gases and odors.
Bosch Premium Cabin Filters absorb up to 100% of all pollen, dust particles and harmful substances. This results in a noticeable improvement in the air quality inside the vehicle. Bosch Activated Charcoal Filters go one step further than Particulate Filters.
Bosch Activated Charcoal Cabin Air Filters have a 5-layer design that includes an additional carbon layer that absorbs toxic and foul-smelling gases such as ozone, nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide and hydrocarbons, and an additional cover layer for extra protection.

Cabin filters are generally found in one of three locations: under the hood, inside the glove box or under the dashboard. Recommended replacement is every 12,000 to 15,000 miles, or once a year.

HOUSTON VEHICLE EMISSIONS INSPECTION  ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTICS II (OBDII)

http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/rsd/vi/publications/rules/emis_manual/chapter3.pdf

Keeping Vehicles On Texas Roadways Safe...

Texas registered vehicles are required to receive an annual inspection.

The Vehicle inspection includes a comprehensive safety inspection to ensure basic road worthiness.

Vehicles registered in counties classified by Federal EPA as being in nonattainment status (17) are required to have an emissions test in addition to the safety inspection.

OBDII emissions testing will be performed in the following counties:
1. Brazoria,
2. Collin,
3. Dallas,
4. Denton,
5. Ellis,
6. El Paso,
7. Ft Bend,
8. Galveston,
9. Harris,

10. Johnson,
11. Kaufman,
12. Parker,
13. Montgomery,
14. Rockwall,
15. Tarrant,
16. Travis, and
17. Williamson
OBDII emissions testing is performed on all motor vehicles that are:

http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/InternetForms/Forms/VI-51.pdf

This manual provides the department's instruction to inspection
stations and inspectors for conducting the vehicle emissions
inspection in counties with vehicle emissions inspection
and maintenance (I/M) programs. This manual supplements
the “Rules and Regulations Manual for Operation of
Official Vehicle Inspection Stations,” which provides
instructions for the annual safety inspection in those counties.

Houston/Galveston area (Brazoria, Ft Bend, Galveston, Harris, & Montgomery counties), vehicle emissions Inspection and Maintenance (I/M) program

01.15.00 I/M PROGRAM DESIGN
The design of the IM program is to concentrate on specific
pollutants found in vehicle exhaust emissions. Those pollutants
are carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC), and
nitrogen oxides (NOx). It is one of many similar programs in
counties across the U.S. having air quality below the
National Ambient Air Quality Standard.

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas
sometimes found in urban areas in concentrations that can
be harmful to people. It is a by-product of combustion and
the automobile is the single largest source of this pollutant.

Hydrocarbons are organic compounds composed of hydrogen
and carbon. The energy in such compounds is released
when combined with oxygen during combustion. Most
engine fuels, such as gasoline, propane, methane, etc.,
contain hydrocarbons and some portion remains after
combustion. Hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides react with
sunlight and warm temperatures to form ground-level ozone.
Ground-level ozone, a main ingredient in smog, can cause
upper respiratory problems and lung damage.

Nitrogen oxides, or NOx, is the generic term for a group of
highly reactive gases, all of which contain nitrogen and oxygen
in varying amounts. Many of the nitrogen oxides are colorless
and odorless. However, one common pollutant, nitrogen
dioxide (NO2), along with particles in the air, is often
seen as a reddish-brown haze (smog) over many urban
areas. During combustion, high heat and pressure will
cause nitrogen to combine with unused oxygen.
The specific vehicle emissions test used in the I/M program
area or county focuses on the pollutant problem of the area.

 

Is Your Office Building Trying to Kill You?

When it comes to our health, as Canadians we have a vast amount of knowledge regarding nutrition, the importance of regular exercise and adequate sleep, and the value of supplementation for targeting specific concerns. But, there is one aspect of optimal health that often slips through the cracks of our pursuit for more energy, well-being, and a longer life. That is the very air we breathe into our lungs at an approximate 20,000 breaths per day. What many of us don’t realize is that without proper filtration methods, our bodies become virtual filters of often 50,000 pollutant particles with each breath we breathe!

Ozone Watch Issued The Texas Commission On Environmental Quality...Has Issued An Ozone Watch For The Houston...Galveston...And Brazoria Areas For Monday August 27, 2012. Atmospheric Conditions Are Expected To Be Favorable For Producing High Levels Of Ozone Pollution In The Houston...Galveston...And Brazoria Areas. Elevated Concentrations Of Ozone Can Act As A Lung Irritant. Individuals With Chronic Lung Disease...Such As Asthma And Emphysema...And The Elderly And Small Children...Are Particularly Sensitive To Ozone And Should Attempt To Avoid Exposure. To Avoid Exposure...Minimize Exertion Outdoors During The Mid-Day To Early Evening Hours Or Stay Indoors In An Air Conditioned Area During This Time. Ozone Reaching Excessive Levels At Any Site In The Area May Move To Or From Other Sites Within The Area...Depending On Wind Direction And Other Factors. Excessive Levels May Linger Until Sunset. Ozone Warnings Will Be Issued If Air Pollution Levels Are Detected At Unhealthy Levels.

1/4 " thick white polyester fabric

Dual Filtration Charcoal Prefilter


The Charcoal Prefilter starts with an uncoated 1/4 " thick white polyester fabric.


Then the polyester dust filtration media is impregnated with activated carbon to achieve a dual filtration effect.

 
The polyester filters large lint particles, while the activated carbon filters the gas and odors.

Coconut Shell Activated Carbon

Highest Rate of Adsorption


The Charcoal Prefilter uses a Coconut Shell Activated Carbon.


This carbon is ground to an extremely fine particle size to increase the surface area available for gas and odor adsorption.

 

Activated Carbon Charcoal Prefilter
