Controlled air quality is crucial in many processes today. Besides many technical applications, building ventilation is a key area. Here, air filters ensure healthy indoor air by removing harmful fine dust including pollen, bacteria, yeast and molds along with other organic and inorganic material. Air filters also serve to keep the air handling equipment itself clean. By doing so, they ensure its hygienic and efficient operation.
Air purity requirements are continuously increasing.
This is due to increasingly sophisticated and sensitive industrial processes, stricter environmental legislation and rising comfort and health conscious attitudes. At the same time, the need to reduce energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions is increasing, along with the pressure on costs. Thus, buildings are more and more restricted from natural ventilation. Energy-efficient mechanical air handling and, in particular, air filtration solutions, are more in demand than ever.
