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.
A recent report by Campaign for Clean Air in London (CAL) highlighted the lack of understanding among senior managers and others that few buildings comply with indoor air quality standard EN: 13779. Buildings may have mechanical ventilation, air conditioning and/or air filtration or none of these and few buildings comply with indoor air quality standard EN:13779.
In London for example many Local Authorities do not know if their buildings comply and many Local Authorities do not know about compliance in their schools and that significant opportunity exists to improve indoor air quality and reduce energy costs.
So what can I do?
Ask Camfil Farr for an ‘Opportunity Assessment’ this will help you:
- Understand the system condition of your Air Handling Unit (AHU)
- Request a report at no cost that proposes an itemised solution
- Choose the best solution using low energy air filters
- Give your existing AHU plant a new and efficient lease of life
- Reduce running costs and get peace of mind
Follow this simple checklist:
- Use easy access mountings and ensure seals are effective
- Use low energy glass fibre bag filters, with high surface area, rather than synthetic or ultraviolet type filters to extend life and reduce energy cost
- Use carbon filters to reduce gaseous pollutants
- Consider upgrading fans as current ones may be energy inefficient
- Clean cooling coils and heat exchangers
- Clean air handling units and duct systems
- Use pressure gauges to monitor on-going filter efficiency
- Regularly maintain the system and establish operating practices
Finally you should ask Camfil Farr to certify your building as complying with EN 13779.
We are featuring the best of our most popular content from the archives. Please share and comment! We would appreciate your feedback. This Presentation is on the subject of Indoor Air Quality and the effect on Energy Consumption Health and Productivity. The presentation covers exposure to air pollution, the cost of air pollution on productivity in the workplace, how that projects itself indoors and the health impact on our lives.
