SAAF Tech Tools: Decision science solutions for gas phase applications

J. Rajala*, R. Bharadwaj, AAF Flanders, USA

Selecting an appropriate gas phase filtration solution to remedy a customer issue can be challenging, particularly when ascertaining relevant information. What chemicals are present in the air? What is the right media to adsorb these chemicals? What is the right type of equipment needed? How long will the media last before it needs to be changed? This paper will show how SAAF™ Tech Tools can help the user to intuitively select an appropriate solution for a specific application and ensure that the customer’s concerns regarding harmful gases in occupied spaces will be safely handled.

Designed by experts in gas phase filtration, SAAF™ Tech Tools guides the end user through the process of entering critical application parameters, such as the contaminant gasses present, system air flow and steady/peak operating conditions, that will generate a unique solution for each case. Predefined project templates are loaded into this software with contaminant gas concentrations in ppb (parts per billion) for commonly encountered environments, such as hospitals, petroleum refineries, pulp and paper mills, landfills and major metropolitan areas. This allows the user to have knowledge of the representative gas phase contaminants when no other information is available. If specific information is known, a custom solution can be created from a blank template, and users will be guided to their solution with an easy-to-use interface. A wide variety of commonly encountered gasses, searchable by common name, alternative names, and Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) number, are programmed into the SAAF™ Tech Tools decision science-based algorithms. The output of the program displays....
