Ventilation: Local mean age of air -homogeneous emission techniques (NT VVS 118)

NT VVS 118

Indoor air quality: Measurement of co2 (NT VVS 114)

NT VVS 114

  • This method determines the overall function of the ventilation system by measuring the carbon dioxide, CO2 generated by the occupants. The primary intention is to measure the room air concentration, CR with one gas analyser. However by using two or more gas analysers the effectiveness or local ventilation index can also be obtained.

Ventilatlon: Vents for direct supply of outdoor air capacity rating (NT VVS 091)

NT VVS 091

  • The scope of this Nordtest method is to determine the air flow rate through vents for direct supply of outdoor air, and also the air leakage rate through these vents in the closed position.

Field test method for the easurement of filter efficiency (NT TR 531)

NT TR 531

  • Ventilation filters are normally classified with the aid of standard laboratory tests. The most well known standards are the European standard EN779 (Anon. 1993) and the corresponding American standard ASHRAE 52.2 (Anon. 1999). Standard tests, however, produce information which may be insufficient for estimating the true filter performance.

Indoor climate problems - Investigation and remedial measures (NT TR 204)

NT TR 204

  • Problems due to heat, cold and draughts, bad air or stuffy air in dwellings and places of work have been, and continue to be, of frequent occurrence.
