Institutional Buildings Air Filter Solutions
Airborne particles and debris are constantly drawn into the air intakes and louvers of hospitals, nursing homes and school HVAC units, condensers and air cooled chillers across the country. Cottonwood seeds, leaves, pollen, paper debris, industrial waste, nesting birds, construction debris and insects are continuously drawn into air intakes costing thousands of dollars and man hours on equipment repair downtime and maintenance. Debris insulates the coils, electronics and other sensitive components, causing heat build-up, higher discharge pressure and amp draws. Reduced air flow causes equipment to run for longer cycle times, at reduced capacity, decreased life expectancy, increased filter changes and escalating power costs.
Proper air filtration will prevent debris from impacting equipment performance. Permatron air filtration products offer you cost effective solutions.

Stern. School officials were concerned that the airborne dirt from the mass digging and construction work would be sucked into the building’s louvered air intakes that surround the outside of the building just below the windows.
