Filtering In Savings

02 June 2015 | Updated 01 January 1970

The Hi-Flo II from Camfil is an improved version of its 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 is claimed to save up to £30 per year for every installed filter. 

Camfil argues that FMs and energy managers as well as building owners will be able to meet the tougher requirements for energy savings specified in Eurovent’s 2015 energy efficiency classification for air filters.

The top model, M7 in filter class F7, has received the highest rating from Eurovent (A+) for its 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.

The paybacks within revenue budgets are reportedly less than three months and the air filters are designed to be changed, so do not put any pressure on capital budgets when upgrading to low energy air filters.

Picture:   The Hi-Flo II from Camfil scores highly for energy efficiency and payback.
