From the Archives – A new way of comparing air filters – put your supplier to the test

We are featuring the best of our most popular content from 2012. Please share and comment! We would appreciate your feedback.

This post explains the Eurovent energy classification which facilitates filter comparisons giving customers a clearer understanding of a filter’s annual energy consumption. It also highlights the health and financial implications of poor indoor air quality. Within the post, we have included an Energy Efficiency Classification Document to help buyers to find the correct air filters to suit their requirements.

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.

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?
