Camfil, the world leader in air filtration technology, has launched the most energy efficient bag filter, the Hi-Flo F7 50+.
The new Hi-Flo II is a new and enhanced version of Camfil’s award winning Hi-Flo low energy air filter. Featuring aerodynamic pockets for optimised performance, the new low energy air filters have been rated A+ by Eurovent. It saves up to GBP30 per year for every installed filter. FMs and Energy Managers and building owners will be able to meet the much tougher requirements for energy savings specified in Eurovent’s 2015 energy efficiency classification system for air filters.
Bill Wilkinson, Managing Director, Camfil UK said:
“The new Energy Saver Hi-Flo filter from Camfil is a major ‘quick win’ for switched on Energy Managers and FMs. The pay backs within revenue budgets are typically less than 3 months and air filters are designed to be changed, unlike other components within the ventilation system, so consequently do not put any pressure on capital budgets when upgrading to low energy air filters.”
Eurovent – The new classification for air filters
Eurovent’s new, objective energy efficiency classification has now been implemented. Today all air filters can be graded from A+ to E. The grade A+ stands for the lowest energy consumption and E for the highest.
About the new Hi-Flo II
The top model, M7 in filter class F7, has received the highest rating from Eurovent (A+) for its outstandingly low energy consumption. In addition to saving more energy, the filtration efficiency of the new Hi-Flo II M7 is significantly higher than the performance demands for equivalent filters in EN779:2012, the European standard for general ventilation filters.
HVAC systems heat cool and clean the air distribution within some 200,000 buildings in the UK. That’s approximately 7,300 organisations consuming 35% of the UK’s energy consumption. The Federation of European Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning Associations have estimated that within the EU there is a potential annual saving of 5TWh available by switching to Low Energy Air Filters. This would equate to GBP500 MILLION OF ENERGY SAVINGS IN THE UK.
