SWEDEN: Systemair has joined with Belgian filter manufacturer Deltrian to launch a range of virucidal AHU filters, said to be effective against 99% of all viruses, including SARS-CoV-2.
The Deltri+ filters are Eurovent certified and are described as containing advanced plasma technology capable of neutralising or destroying 99% of all viruses, including SARS-CoV-2. They were tested by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology.
“We are delighted to say that Deltri+ can capture and inactivate viruses. Its effectivity is proven in dry and wet environments, open and closed circuits alike,” said Deltrian owner and COO Jurgen Alexius. “In addition, the filters reduce the risk of transmission and proliferation of viruses and bacteria in the air. While it does not replace other preventive measures, we consider it a hands-on contribution to support a return to a more normal life.”
Systemair insists that the filters can be employed without significantly increasing energy costs. “Despite its virucidal functions and being classified ISO16890 ePM1 90%, the filter holds a Eurovent Certified Performance A+ energy class rating, ensuring a low-pressure drop and market-leading dust holding capacity with the best possible energy efficiency,” said Lena Eklind, Systemair’s group technical director.
Deltri+ filters are being offered by Systemair as replacement filters in standard and special sizes for existing AHUs, independent from their brand.
In addition, all newly build Systemair AHUs can be shipped with Deltri+ as an optional order item.
The filters are already available in most of Europe and many other markets worldwide.
