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.

  • The distributor you got me in contact with sent me the three PreVent Model R filters I was looking for. They are working great. Thank You.

  • Everything was correct & professionally served, finely crafted with accurate dimensions of quality material. I will purchase further metal mesh filters from your firm in the future as demand calls for.

  • We had to change a combined condensing / free cooling coil because it was so badly damaged from debris and washing. 10k€ (approx. $12,000 USD)  for the coil and works and 6k€ (approx. $7000 USD) for the crane hire. The second chiller on the site is perfect as the screen was fitted back some time ago.

  • The filters we purchased are a great addition to our plant operations.  I am looking at other applications for their use…

  • The order process went very well.  We received the black washable fan bonnets 2 weeks ago and are very happy.  I will order again in the future.   Great product and great service.  Thank You!

  • 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.
