VerdexAir® range of filters offer food manufacturers peace of mind. They meet the strictest regulations in the food industry. Plus, they give you high energy efficiency and a lower total cost of ownership.
The Problem with Food and Beverage Facilities
The HVAC systems in these buildings were never designed do deal with the air pressure (high pressure drop) required to push air thru HEPA-level filters needed to stop viruses.
As such, current HVAC systems cannot handle the HEPA filtration needed to capture viruses without burning out the air handling systems, to do so, will require major costly upgrades.
This lack of a cost-effective solution is why the CDC and other organizations are recommending only going from a MERV 8 to MERV 13, which current HVAC systems can handle.
Unfortunately, MERV 13 is simply not an acceptable level of filtration to capture viruses needed to make these buildings safe.
The Technical Solution -
HEPA Upgrade for HVAC Systems
VerdexAir® is the only company that can make a HEPA level filter that captures 99.9% of viruses, compatible with current HVAC handling units within your Food and Beverage Facility.
The new, highly effective VerdexAir® HEPA level filtration solutions has been specifically optimized for use in Food and Beverage Facilities, to ensure Healthy Air in all indoor spaces.
Save Millions in Retrofit Costs
Our VerdexAir® HEPA upgrade solution for HVAC systems are the perfect choice for old hospital buildings where it would millions/billions to upgrade. Our products enable you to upgrade existing systems with HEPA filters using our proprietary nanofiber technology. They massively improve contamination protection, and give peace of mind to your all your employees.
Save Millions in Energy Costs
The life cycle cost of a filter can be broken down as depicted. The initial investment includes the capital cost of the filter, frame and installation, and contributes about 6%.
Further costs to be considered are maintenance cost, which represents the cost of replacement filters and labor, and cost to dispose of the used filters.
By far the largest cost contribution however, is the energy cost of the system necessary to power the fan, making up 76% of the total cost.
Energy consumption of a VerdexAir® Filter made from Verdex 3D nanofibers is approximately 40% lower than with a traditional HEPA filter of the same efficiency rating.
This energy savings directly translates into a 60% cost savings, allowing significant monetary savings potential for building installations requiring a multitude of filters.
Virus Free Buildings
In times of a pandemic, the regular filter set-up will no longer be sufficiently effective. Standard HVAC filters are not designed to safely capture viruses and bacteria.
VerdexAir® provides innovative Nanofiber HEPA level filtration that captures 99.9% of viruses.
Healthy Air can become a reality without major system changes or reconfigurations or downtimes.
