Fan Shrouds & Vent Filters

Processing plants that produce food products are subject to AIB (American Institute of Baking) inspection audits that mandate high standards of sanitation in food processing and handling establishments.  The busy bakery department at the local Costco, utilizes pedestal fans to cool down their hot kitchen after baking fresh breads on a daily basis.  Quality assurance that cross contamination is intercepted or eliminated is so vital to the food industry that steep penalties for violations are the norm.  AIB Safety Audit & Inspection guidelines include Dust Collection & Filtering Devices be put in place to prevent possible contamination to food products from threads, lint and fibers. Mobile and pedestal style air circulatory fans and rooftop vents can be found throughout most facilities. Common dust challenges and poor indoor air quality can be  found in all types of processing plants including agricultural products, paper mills, auto assembly, pharmaceuticals or electronics to name a few. The process of grinding course grains into flour, which is then moved to mixing machines and combined with fine spices and other baking additives can create an atmosphere contaminated with sticky dust, egg shells and lint.  Proper air filtration is critical to protect the indoor air quality for the benefit of employees, products and equipment.

Production companies continually look to conserve maintenance dollars by keeping a close eye on the costs of plant and equipment upkeep without sacrificing product quality and safety.  Equipment air intake filters for vents and fans help ensure clean processing, maximum up-time and  smooth production flow critical to quality assurance and a profitable bottom line. Permatron manufacturers a variety of 3-dimensional air filter styles, for use on circular fan guards, ventilation intakes or exhausts to prevent possible contamination from environmental dust, dirt, thread, lint and fibers.  These filters contain washable electrostatic polypropylene media or disposable nonwoven polyester custom sewn with elastic cloth binding to fit over any sized fan guard grill or forced air ventilation opening.

  • It’s always a great idea to protect HVAC condenser coils with screening, especially if you can do it right after new equipment installation. Once the magnets where inserted into the screen grommets, it took literally less than a minute to place the screening on the equipment, adjust it, done. This screening will protect the condenser coils from grass cutting, bugs, cottonwood seedlings, etc.

  • Our customer, Logoplaste, uses and raves about the Prevent BHA Screens and MagnaMount Kits.We did an install at their manufacturing facility in June on two units, all four sides required screens. Installation time was drastically reduced from the original 6 hour estimate with standard mount clips, to complete screen installation in under 1 hour with MagnaMount clips.The facility is located along the river where cottonwood trees are very abundant. Even when installing PreVent, it was catching the cottonwood that was flying. I brought him out one of your cleaning brooms a week after install, and the Maintenance Manager said that it is the best money he has spent since he has worked at that facility. He is planning on purchasing some more for his 4 Cooling Towers as well.

  • The PreVent bonnet style filter is the best thing I have ever bought to protect our cooling tower circular fan. We have to clean it every two weeks but it is so easy.

  • Permatron's PreVent screening was installed on recently replaced 363A RTU condenser coils, outside air and economizer openings, using MagnaMount magnets to hold them in place VS drilling and screwing them on. The magnets will most definitely be our primary mounting option going forward. All three screens took us literally less than five minutes to install. I noticed how quickly cottonwood was caught by the screening.The screens can be cleaned in place or easy removed for more detailed cleaning.

  • PreVent is a very nice product, and very reasonably priced.  Belk is looking forward to the opportunity to do more work with Permatron in the future.

  • I had some good feedback from the client who uses our MH3 compact thermoelectric counter top cooler: • The filters are very easy to install. • They should help extend the life of the chillers. • They haven't had to replace any chillers that have the filters installed.

  • I reached out to Permatron about putting branded labels with part numbers on every Thermo King air filter. Some of our customers replaced original equipment air filters with look-alike filters, which had a negative impact on the performance of their equipment. While working on the air filter labels we added a packaging project, requiring a few more labels and packaging material. The project was big, but thanks to an awesome communication flow, the changes were completed fast and implemented seamlessly. Now our customers can easily differentiate between original equipment and non-original equipment air filters.  Because the branded air filters come prepackaged from Permatron, our dock-to-stock time improved by over a week.
