We have delivered six CamCleaner 6000 Units to improve the working environment and deliver healthy Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) to a leading manufacturer in the North West.
The wallpaper manufacturer, based in Lancashire was founded in the 1940’s. They are based in a factory in an industrial area of the town and use large printing machines to create patterned wallpapers which are then supplied around the UK, Europe and North America. The factory is still on the original site and over recent years has transformed production into a 200,000²/ft production & office facility.
Our Engineers visited the site to discuss traditional air filter supply to the building and to look at finding a solution to improve indoor air quality within the manufacturing facility. Visible airborne particles were present at high level, this being a by-product of the printing machines and general manufacturing process. High temperatures and particle counts were confirmed in the building rafters and eaves. Extraction to atmosphere was not an option.
We recommended using six of our CamCleaner 6000 units suspended in the ceiling space above the printing machines, taking the pollution out at source. The British manufacturing organisation was looking for a solution that could effectively prevent the accumulation of pollution in a controlled manner whilst using very little energy. We were able to provide the appropriate solution to meet this requirement – the CamCleaner 6000 air purifier.
The mobile and stationary version of the CamCleaner 6000 is the ideal solution for effective filtration and purification of air in large interior spaces and industrial plants making it ideal in a factory environment. CamCleaners use HEPA filters for more efficient filtration, reducing the number of required air changes and using safe and environmentally friendly technology. CamCleaner units come with a high-quality finish, are recognised for trouble-free operation, and provide high air quality at low energy cost. The air circulation generated by the CamCleaner creates a uniform temperature distribution throughout the premises, even in rooms with high ceilings.
Peter Dyment the Technical Manager and Air Quality and Building Energy Consultant from Camfil hosted a seminar at Ecobuild 2014, the world’s leading event for sustainable design, construction, energy and the built environment.
Ecobuild 2014 took place at the ExCel in London from 4th to 6th March 2014. It presents the entire spectrum of sustainable construction products for new build and refurbishment of residential, commercial and industrial building projects. Peter’s Seminar was titled Ventilation, air cleaning and indoor air quality.
This year the Ecobuild 2014 was an event on a truly immense scale with a comprehensive seminar program over three days. Peter Dyment was invited as part of the Green Energy forum to give a presentation on the growing importance of Indoor Air Quality in buildings and the focus on ventilation systems and air conditioning systems (HVAC) as a means of saving energy. The greenest energy and lowest cost energy is that which is never used. Continue reading
We have published an informative White Paper highlighting the opportunities that arise from choosing effective air filtration systems within non-domestic buildings. To find out how the indoor air quality within your organisation can be improved whilst delivering significant energy savings, download the White Paper here.
Many multi-site organisations and Estates Departments at larger organisations are committed to developing and implementing energy plans, involving strategy and policy on energy and sustainability. One of the main aims of these plans is to strive to balance the key principles, those of sustainability, financial viability, environmental enhancement and social responsibility.
We can demonstrate through a number of high profile installations, how air filters directly influence energy consumption within air handling units that heat, cool and clean the air of approximately 200,000 air conditioned buildings in the UK.
The White Paper, called ‘Quick wins for energy savings in buildings: Choosing low energy air filters for both optimised energy performance and indoor air quality’ addresses the challenge that all industry sectors are facing when it comes to the energy efficiency of their building stock.
The Federation of European Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning Associations have estimated that within the EU alone there is a potential annual saving of 5TWh available by switching to Low Energy Air Filters. This would equate up to £500 million energy saving in the UK.
