Standard 680 (I-P) Scope
This standard applies to factory-made Air Filter Equipment and Air Filter Media, as used in such equipment, for removing particulate matter, when used in environmental conditioning of inhabited spaces in residential facilities. 


Air filtration devices of the types generally used in residential and commercial environments, as outlined in the  following subsection scopes:


Section Scopes


Mechanical Air Filter Subsection Scope:
A device that utilizes a filter media, which may or may not have a passive electrostatic charge, to mechanically remove airborne particulate, including particulate from biological sources, in residential and commercial heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) systems.

Electronic Air Filter Subsection Scope:

An electrically powered device that utilizes an active electrical or ionization field to impose a charge on the airborne particulate, including particulate from biological sources, that assists in removing the particulate from the air stream in residential and commercial heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) systems.

Ultraviolet Light Treatment Subsection:

Factory made devices that create light in the Ultraviolet wavelength for use either as a germicidal light to affect microorganisms on illuminated surfaced or in the air stream or to cause a catalytic reaction to break down contaminants in the air circulating in the ductwork of residential and commercial environments.
