Air screen reduces maintenance up to 70%

Air intake screens claims 70 per cent reduction in HVAC equipment maintenance

Engineering specialists ECEX has launched a new range of air intake screens designed for all types of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and cooling tower applications, including condensers, air-cooled chillers and dry coolers.

Protection of air intake equipment can reduce preventative plant maintenance (PPM) by up to 70 percent and prolong the life of HVAC internal air filters by up to 60 percent.

ECEX Managing Director Richard Betts, said: “Protection of air intake systems helps reduce energy and maintenance costs.”

“Particles of airborne debris are drawn into HVAC equipment which can cause filters to clog up and increase airflow resistance.”

“Over time, machinery will become less efficient and, in some cases, the airborne waste can cause failure. Air intake screens offer a simple and cost-effective preventative solution to these problems.”

The air intake prevents bacterial growth, often found in water-cooling towers, by preventing external nutrient sources from entering the equipment.

The screens also increase cooling tower efficiency through improved airflow, inhibition of algae growth and reduced chemical water treatment costs.

Screening the air intake prevents clogging around coils found in condensers, air-cooled chillers and dry air coolers; as a result they require less frequent cleaning. Reduced cleaning helps to prevent damage often caused by power washing and the use of cleaning chemicals.

When fitted to air handling units and louvre applications, the screens improve the efficiency of internal air filters, protect louvre actuators and promote indoor air quality.
