The new way to organize your filter purchase

The FRISCHLUFTMANAGER is an online tool that takes care of all the organisation involved in purchasing filters. There you will find all your ventilation systems, their corresponding filters, be reminded of maintenance dates and be automatically supplied on time. Plus: Each shipping box clearly states which of your systems the filter is intended for. No more confusion when changing!

The fresh air manager helps them to significantly reduce their administrative workload when procuring and replacing filters. In the future, they will only order once for the duration of their maintenance interval. As an independent dealer, we can offer you the best filters for you from a single source.

We provide the filters four weeks before maintenance in our warehouse and guarantee on-time delivery. We pack the filters per system, according to your wishes – whether mouth protection, gloves or disposal bag, we put together your personal package. The individual labelling of the boxes enables them to be used smoothly during maintenance.

By providing the filters four weeks before the delivery date, we are able to react to possible changes at short notice, within 2 days, and to deliver earlier or later. This allows us to react to bottlenecks or postponements and gives them more flexibility in their personnel planning.

With the fresh air manager you get your personal online access to our maintenance tool. There you can see all plants with the corresponding filters as well as maintenance dates. Continuous development based on their feedback enables us to provide them with the best possible support at all times. No matter if you are in charge of one or 300 plants, the fresh air manager supports you from the first plant on. The connection to an existing ERP system is also possible.

Our air filter experts will answer your questions about the right model, present alternatives to previously used filters and, if desired, provide support in optimizing maintenance intervals. By phone, by web, by mail.

Activated carbon filter

Activated carbon cartridges are designed for the adsorption of gaseous and odorous pollutants. They can be used on the supply and exhaust air side. A simple modular principle makes it possible to create large filter systems from the base plates by means of screw assembly. Depending on the application, pollutant gas mixtures with different adsorption behaviour can be separated in several filter stages, using appropriately impregnated special carbons. Activated carbon cartridges with standard carbon can be used up to an operating temperature of +40 °C and a rel. humidity of +30 °C. humidity of 70 % can be used. Activated carbon is sensitive to dust and must be protected by appropriate pre-filters. Depending on the application, the contact time of the air with the activated carbon is between 0.1 and 5 seconds.

Pocket filter coarse dust

Coarse dust filters serve as pre-separators for subsequent filter stages, as main filters for air-conditioning systems or for process protection. They are classified in filter class ISOcoarse 50 to 95 % depending on the degree of separation. The filter medium consists of fine synthetic or glass fibres sewn into wedge-shaped pockets. Spacers, which are inserted into or between the filter pockets, ensure uniform airflow through the filter. The bags are thus loaded with dust throughout their depth. This results in long service lives at low energy costs. The filter complies with the requirements of VDI 6022.

Pocket filter fine dust

Fine dust filters serve both as pre-separators for subsequent filter stages and as main filters for air conditioning systems or process protection. Depending on the degree of separation, the filters are divided into filter classes ISOePM10, ISOePM2.5 and ISOePM1 50 to 95 %. ISOePM10 and ISOePM2.5 filters are used for fine dust separation in the pharmaceutical, electrical and photographic industries, partial and full air conditioning systems with high air purity in laboratories or sickrooms. ISOePM1 filters are chosen for air conditioning systems with very high air purity for high quality assembly rooms and switchgear, in food production, pre-filters for clean room facilities in the pharmaceutical industry, aerosol separation or other process protection. All fine dust filter media are made of fine synthetic fibers sewn into wedge-shaped pockets. Parallel spacer seams along the entire length of the bag ensure even airflow through the filter, so that the entire depth of the filter bags is loaded with dust. The advanced filter medium has a multi-layer structure and is provided with a further high-performance pre-filter layer in the case of high dust loads. The separation efficiency of the filters is constant even with fluctuating and varying air flow rates. All filters comply with the requirements of VDI 6022.

HEPA filter

HEPA filters are mechanically highly resilient and are used for the separation of suspended matter such as viruses, germs, toxic dusts or aerosols. They are indispensable where virtually germ- and dust-free air is required, especially in industrial processes and in pharmaceutical technology. The filters are classified in filter classes E10 to E12 (EPA), H13 to H14 (HEPA) and U15 to U17 (ULPA). The ultra-fine glass fibre or PTFE filter medium is placed in tight parallel pleats to achieve the largest possible filter area with high filtration efficiencies. The filter can be used both on the dust-air side and on the clean-air side. The use of aluminium spacers enables, for example, cleanable filter media for up to 10,000 cleaning cycles, FDA-compliant design or electrical grounding for EX protection. Tighter convolution for considerably higher volume flows as well as lower pressure differences are also possible, as is potting with a silicone compound for temperatures up to 250 °C.

Compact filter

Compact filters are used as prefilters and main filters when high volume flows and high initial separation rates are required. In addition to the separation of coarse and fine dust, they are also excellently suited for the separation of suspended particles and toxic dusts as well as aerosols. Thanks to the aerodynamically favourably shaped inlet profiles, these filters offer significantly lower initial pressures than pocket or panel HEPA filters at the same nominal volume flow rate. The robust plastic frames are corrosion-free and allow for easy disposal; they are completely incinerable. For applications with the highest demands, the filter can be reinforced on the clean air side with burst protection grids. The filters fit into all common mounting frames for pocket filters from various manufacturers and meet the requirements of VDI 6022.

Consulting ISO 16890 Standard

With the introduction of the new test procedure for filters according to ISO 16890, the previous filter classes G1 to F9 (EN 779) are replaced by four new classes. With regard to the desired supply air quality, the new classification has become much more user-friendly. The class designation shows the collection efficiency for the respective particle spectrum PM1, PM2.5, PM10 and Coarse (coarse dust >10µm). This allows the filters to be selected and combined individually for each application.

Facts worth knowing about clean air

“Did you know” is a category of interesting information and wisdom about clean air, written and updated regularly for you by our experts.

If you have specific questions about your ventilation systems or standards, we will be happy to help you.

  • Air is the most important "food" for us humans

    We need about 30 litres of oxygen every hour – which we extract from 150 litres of fresh air. However, due to self-production of carbon dioxide, humans need about 5 [m3/h] air to keep carbon dioxide levels below a dangerous limit.

  • What does a coarse dust filter actually consist of?

    Coarse dust filters are made of glass fibers or synthetic fibers, such as polypropylene, polyester, and others, with a fiber diameter of about 30 to 50 [μm] and a fiber spacing of 200-400 [μm].

  • The sources of dust pollution in cities

    The German Federal Environment Agency estimates that dust pollution in cities can be attributed to three main sources:

    1. approx. 50 % originate from the emission of diesel vehicles (trucks, vans, buses, cars)
    2. approx. 25 % is stirred up by traffic (abrasion from brakes, tyres, road surface)
    3. approx. 25 % are remotely transported particles, i.e. these particles originate from more distant sources.

  • What is an activated carbon filter?

    Activated carbon is produced from organic soaps, such as peat, nutshells or sugar, by heating and further special treatments, with the aim of extremely increasing the “outer” and “inner” surface area. Due to the formation of microscopic pores and capillary systems, the adsorptive surface area is up to 1500 m² per gram of activated carbon. This extremely large adsorption surface results in an excellent separation efficiency and a large storage capacity. The service life and the useful life are correspondingly long.

  • How long do filters last?

    The service life of the filters is not in direct proportion to the final resistance achieved. The resistance increases rapidly towards the end of the operating time of the filter. The air volume of the filter or the air velocity through the filter material has a great influence on its service life. At low air velocity the initial resistance decreases and a larger amount of dust can be taken up by the filter up to a given final resistance. In addition, the saturation of the filter slows down, since the dust load per time unit is smaller at low air flow rates. Conversely, the service life of the filter decreases with heavier loads.

  • The filter effect of coarse dust filters

    For coarse dust filters, no large deviations from the nominal air volume are permissible. The filter effect of coarse dust filters (inertia effect, sieve effect) is based on the fact that the particles fly through the filter material at a certain speed. Air velocities that are too high or too low lead to a significant decrease in separation efficiency and put a strain on the following filters and components.
