AAF Case Study - MEGAcel™ I Filters Save Energy - Lower Costs
News Source: WiredPRNews.com

LOUISVILLE, KY --- September 2010 --- AAF® International, manufacturer of American Air Filter® and AAF products, announces the release of a new case study featuring its energy saving MEGAcel™ I filters.

A global engine manufacturer using competitor standard capacity HEPA filters for several years was approached by AAF with an energy savings solution using AAF’s MEGAcel™ I filters. The customer welcomed a call to show the potential cost savings through AAF’s exclusive Life Cycle Valuation (LCV) program. The results of the analysis showed a clear advantage when switching to AAF’s MEGAcel I filters.

AAF recommended replacing the current competitive HEPA filters with the MEGAcel I filters. MEGAcel I filters incorporate AAF’s unique Helior™ media, a proprietary, durable ePTFE media combining ultra-high efficiency with extremely low pressure drop. Lower initial resistance significantly reduces energy consumption, resulting in substantial energy savings and cost benefits.

The engine manufacturer provided system readouts presenting a substantial improvement when switching to AAF’s MEGAcel I filters. The energy being used to power the air handling unit reduced by 50%. In addition, the variable frequency drive reduced from 100% to 74%, meaning the same air volume was going through the unit while the motor was running at a lesser rate—consuming less energy. The 50% decrease in energy consumption will equate to an energy savings of $11,668 per year!

AAF International, based in Louisville, Kentucky, has more than 2,600 employees, 21 manufacturing facilities, and 5 R&D centers worldwide supporting sales offices in 69 countries.
