High-Efficiency Filtration Air Systems for Industrial Manufacturing
Any industrial setting can create loads of contaminants in the air that are natural byproducts of the production process. Over time, these contaminants will accumulate indoors, creating a setting that is dangerous to those who are working in the building and possibly even damaging manufacturing equipment.
Luckily, most problems with air pollution can be remedied through the use of a high-efficiency particulate air filtration system, or HEPA filter.
How HEPA Filters Work
A HEPA filter is a relatively simple system for filtering out air pollutants. It takes the form of a large block that is composed of layers of meshed fibers with increasingly thinner openings. As air runs through these fibers, contaminants are physically trapped within the filter, and clean air is blown out.
Benefits of using a HEPA filter include:
- Removing over 99 percent of all contaminants from the air, which is progressively purified further as the filtration system will run during all operation hours
- Easily replaceable filters that last for months
- Passive filtration process that can be integrated into an air conditioning system
All of these benefits make a HEPA filter one of the most appropriate filtration systems for an industrial setting. Using this type of filter will help ensure the health of employees and the overall safety of the workplace. In addition, it will help guarantee the lifetime of sensitive instruments and equipment that can be damaged by dust.
Installing a HEPA Filtration System
The installation processes for an industrial grade HEPA system can be as simple as installing filters in existing air conditioning vents and units. Larger facilities will be able to use a large-scale machine that is specialized for filtration and can take in large amounts of air at once. The appropriate type of system required can be determined by those who are in charge of installing it.
