The new RITE (Regulation of Thermal Installations in Buildings) forces the ventilation and climate of the buildings meet the minimum requirements for ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND INDOOR AIR QUALITY. (Art. 11). (Art. 11). TECHNICAL INSTRUCTIONS establish mandatory filtering. (I.T.184.108.40.206.2.) (I.T220.127.116.11.3.)
RITE also classified Outdoor Air Quality (ODA) in five levels. Depending on the quality of the exterior air (ODA) where the building is located, the RITE classifies minimum standards for filtration according to their Indoor Air Quality (IDA).
In the case of buildings such as hospitals and offices (they are IDA1 and IDA2); they are normally located in urban and industrial areas with an outdoor air quality in ODA 5. In this case they are required to have a three-stage filtration, including a gas filtration and filtration of particles smaller than F9.
65% of the buildings in Madrid and Barcelona are in areas of oda5.
Conventional filtration technologies are very inefficient from an energetically point of view, because of their high pressure drop. The RITE.ECO efficient Systems of Aire Limpio; the ACTIVE BIAS and photo catalysis systems purify the air with significant costs and energy savings, and meet the requirements of RITE. Aire Limpio optimizes the energy consumption to ensure an excellent Indoor Air Quality. ECO-EFFICIENT filtration technologies of Aire Limpio:
