Optimizing Air Filter Use Through Science -- Not Guesswork Using real-world data, innovative software from Camfil lets cleanroom designers maximize air filter performance, and minimize costs
NEW YORK, May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Across industries -- and the world -- there is a clear mandate to reduce energy use, costs, and emissions. What hasn't always been so clear, however, is how to achieve this goal. That has been particularly true when it comes to air filtration strategies -- selecting the most efficient combination of HVAC air filters and knowing the optimal time to replace them.
In cleanrooms, for example, high-performance air filtration is essential. But the traditional approach to devising an air filtration strategy -- relying on calculated data and averages to predict how filters will perform -- leads to sub-optimal results. That's because in the 'real world,' air filters don't tend to behave according to any set average.
Scientific data -- real-world data from hundreds of air filters used in many different environments -- offers a better approach. And it is an approach taken by Camfil, the world's leading provider of clean air solutions. Camfil's innovative cleanroom design and energy optimization software, called CREO, uses real-world values, derived from long-term, 'in-the-field' usage, to eliminate the guesswork. The result: air filtration strategies that truly are optimal.
CREO enables users not only to select the ideal combination of air filters for their specific environment, but to establish the optimal change-out point for the filters. Traditionally, change-outs have been based on time-based strategies. With CREO, they are based on pressure drop -- a far more reliable indicator of an air filter's performance. So the filters are changed only when they should be, which lowers replacement and disposal costs, and extends filter lifetime.
By giving users the information they need to make an informed air filter selection, CREO continues Camfil's mission to help customers embrace sustainability while boosting performance and savings. Camfil's focus on sustainability has led not just to innovations like CREO, but also to a long line of cutting-edge air filter designs -- filters that maintain their peak efficiency throughout their service life. While traditional air filters tend to degrade quickly, requiring more and more energy to push air through, Camfil's designs have enabled customers to achieve HVAC energy savings of up to 25 to 50 percent.
Businesses know that innovation drives competitive advantage. Now it can help them drive sustainability, performance, efficiency -- and a future of cleaner, healthier air.
The world leader in air filtration systems, Camfil provides clean air solutions for hospitals, hotels, office buildings, educational institutions, and pharmaceutical and biotech companies. We provide the tools to achieve sustainability, maintain high air quality, and reduce airborne infections -- all while lowering total cost of ownership.
