Energy saving even up to € 380 per each filter!

Air filter industry in Europe will be facing great challenges, related to fine dust filtration and energy saving requirements.
Filtech set years ago for filter textile manufacturers an objective to develop a filter material with minimal pressure loss combined to high filtration rate. This target was never reached.

General Manager of Filtech, Mr. Ruud Poppelaars along with his team continued for years developing a product to fully meet this challenge. Quinx-product range was born, an EN779:2012 compatible product with very low pressure loss, great dust binding and filtration rate between F7-H13. The fiber is specially pleated into cassettes, which are glued to a frame.

Electricity consumption of total ventilation cost is almost 70%. To our knowledge, no independent research has been made on energy consumption of different filter materials.

I asked a maintenance manager of a facility with over 20 000 m2 in Turku, Finland, to perform an energy consumption comparison between Quinx-composite (F7) and a filter (F7) made of glass fiber.
The manager chose to use two almost identical equipment units (TK1 and TK2). Operation times were identical, 24h per day. Both set ups had frequency converter Danfoss VLT HVAC and pressure adjustment in channels. Fresh air input trellis were located on the roof beside each other. The ventilated room space for both set ups were the same. kWh gauges were connected to both frequency converters. The parameters given by the gauges were registered in an excel table, for calculation of energy consumption (and saving).

The consumption difference during the comparison period (13 months) is significant. Read more from here.
