Sustainable Filter Designs from AAF Promises Energy Efficiency for Green Buildings
AAF (American Air Filter), a Daikin group company, the world’s largest manufacturer of air filtration solutions is focused on optimizing air quality. The company emphasizes products that minimize total life-cycle costs, including energy consumption and the amount of landfill waste by changing filters too frequently. AAF has a range of products that are metal-free & therefore incinerable.
A recent survey reports that 4% of buildings in India are "green" but lack of technical expertise and funding remains the biggest barriers to investments. In most cases, HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) systems are accountable for 40% of energy consumption.
For better management of HVAC systems, Air filtration is a major component for the sustainable design of green buildings.
The four main factors used to determine the environmental impact of a filter are IAQ, Energy Savings, Source material and Disposal. The higher the efficiency of a filter, the better IAQ. Filter with low pressure drop and higher efficiency will lower the operating cost of HVAC system, resulting in energy savings. Lower energy consumption reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Source material considers potential environmental impact of raw materials used to make the filters. Finally, disposal refers to the impact of disposing the filter at the end of the service.
VariCel VXL meets all above 4 factors, has up to 7 times of media area and maximum dust holding capacity, over the conventional washable medium efficiency filter. It offers the lowest pressure drop and longer service life resulting in low energy consumption and minimizes the cost of ownership.
AAF is acutely sensitive to environmental issues & aware that sustainable development is the need not only for the survival of mankind but also for its future generations. The company is totally committed towards respecting the natural environment and all the products are manufactured keeping this aspect in mind. Although no product has zero impact on the environment, the company strives to manufacture high-quality green products for minimal environmental impact.
