Indoor Air Quality – A new way of comparing air filters – put your supplier to the test

There is a good chance that, at this very moment, you are breathing clean air that has passed through a filter manufactured by us.  Our products can be found everywhere from offices to clean rooms for sensitive electronics production, schools, mines, factories, hospitals and nuclear power stations.

The new Eurovent energy classification facilitates filter comparisons.  Filters are now graded from A to G, with “A” standing for the lowest energy consumption and “G” for the highest.  The new classification, based on EN779:2012**, gives customers a clearer understanding of a filter’s annual energy consumption, initial efficiency and minimum efficiency. To reflect this new classification system,  Camfil Farr is now changing the labels and product names of filters to include the new A to G energy rating. This information clearly points out the difference between our filters and competitor products, making it easier to select the right filter for the right application for the best energy efficiency and filtration.

Camfil argues that better indoor air quality (IAQ) can help businesses reduce energy costs and carbon emissions, while also improving the health and productivity of employees.

The best air filtration systems can help businesses protect employees from 90 per cent of air pollutants for up to 90 per cent of the time. Ask yourself the question: does our ventilation system include regularly maintained air filters that comply with European guideline EN 13779 and if not, why not?

Keep the city out with City-Flo XL


Poor air is a growing problem in cities. Exhaust fumes, diesel particulates and ozone generated by increased vehicle traffic contribute to air pollution. Sulphur dioxide, nitrogenoxide and other air contaminants are creating serious health problems. At the same time, European requirements for better indoor air quality are becoming stricter.

Camfil Farr’s City-Flo XL has been designed specifically to deal with growing urban pollution since it manages both particle and molecular filtration in a single filter. City-Flo XL cleans air to remove particles, odours and gases – including ozone, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide – as well as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Because City-Flo XL also contains activated carbon, it removes odours that ordinary filters miss.
