Considering the changing climatic conditions as a result of global warming, technologists have now placed enough focus on driving efficient air filtration innovations, to meet energy efficiency targets, while also delivering finer levels of separation. Growing demand for purer indoor air quality (IAQ), is anticipated to fuel the widespread adoption of HVAC filters in the coming years. As per the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), poor IAQ is one of the top five public health risks.
As per several studies, over heating if servers in data centers result in the emission of toxic gases—a key factor for data center pollution. Data center pollution has been a source of critical concern for environmentalists. Apart from the massive heat generated in such facilities, the toxic emissions from sulfur-laden machines, makes these centers a worrying source of indoor and outdoor pollution. As more and more companies are set up, owing to the growing demand for new technologies, products, services, and the insatiable need for 24/7 connectivity, the energy expended in data centers would also increase, and so will the level of pollution. To battle such undying pollutions levels in data centers, a robust filtration strategy using HVAC filters is crucial to maintain the indoor air quality. With the help of robust HVAC filters, companies can ensure companies can ensure appropriate temperature and humidity levels in data centers.
In addition to data centers, demand for HVAC filters in healthcare setting is anticipated to increase significantly, considering the patients’ health. Effective disinfection and environmental sterility—both factors focused at refining indoor air quality, are key to maintaining the overall health of patients. Particulates in indoor air could lead to severe respiratory conditions while transmitting infectious diseases. HCAV filters, specifically high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, are a key weapon to keeping air particulates at bay. Moreover, HEPA filters containing carbon or activated charcoal for filtering out fumes, gases, and odors are anticipated to find increased adoption in healthcare settings. Equipping healthcare settings with HVAC filters and HEPA filtration systems becomes all the more important, considering high risks of staph infections in hospitals.
HVAC filters are among the most energy-intensive mechanism for businesses, thereby pushing greater sustainability in the business landscape and reduce operating costs. In all filtration processes, a significant amount of energy is lost during pressure drop or delta pressure, translating into higher energy requirement for filtration and separation systems, specifically applicable in HVAC filter- equipped large dust collection industrial applications. However, filters that separate air particulate matter use significantly higher energy, completely opposing the demand for energy-efficient filtration processes using HVAC filters.
Research and development, aimed at providing energy saving HVAC filter have traditionally stemmed from legislative changes to assuage the effects of global warming, to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The UK government, for instance, has pledged to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions by 26 percent by 2020 and 80 percent by 2050. A result of such legislation is car makers implementing new power train technologies and redesigning car interiors to further improve the aerodynamics, reduce the weight, and increase the overall energy-efficiency.
Forward Market Strategies Concentrated Towards Technological Innovations
Considering intensifying demand for energy efficient HVAC filter systems, companies are focusing on developing higher performance HVAC filter designs, high-tech air filtration media, and overall system design. With the new generation filter media processing and filter media technology, HVAC filter designers are now able to reduce operation costs, maintain energy-cost ratio, provide significance performance improvement, and comply with the highest quality standards.
Hollingsworth & Vose Company, for instance, through its new automotive air induction products, Capaceon™ media and NANOWEB® media, aim to address the growing demand for superior unit filtration capability and higher efficiency—demonstrated at low delta pressure. Donaldson, another leading provider of filtration systems, introduced Synteq XP® compressed air filter media that boasts of unique fiber blend and a superior manufacturing technique that does not require a binder. Additionally, Synteq is designed with a key to reduce energy consumption (saving up to 40 percent energy) due to low media delta pressure. Manufacturers have also developed an antibacterial filter that is not only cost-efficient, but also inactivates more bacteria, using less power to function. 3M, another leading provider of HVAC filters, launched a Bluetooth-enabled HVAC filter for residential settings, furnishing information pertaining to filter maintenance. The new HVAC filter has a Bluetooth-enabled sensor that, when paired with an application, notifies users when the filter needs to be changed, factoring in usage and air flow.
