Permatron's PreVent® air intake filters provide the first line of defense in preventing debris from entering the system. Airborne particles and debris are constantly drawn into the air intakes and louvers of 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.

Dry Coolers

Frequent cleaning is especially hard on this type of unit because it sits on the ground, elevated on 2-1/2' legs, with the high velocity air intake located beneath the unit. Reduced air flow causes equipment to run for longer cycle times, at reduced capacity, decreased life expectancy, increased filter changes and escalating power costs.

Air Filtration Solutions

Failure to provide cost effective air intake protection to building or equipment fans, motors, heat exchangers and other process cooling systems adds up to a costly loss of productivity in safe and effective system operations. This is especially true of refrigeration and cooling application systems where heat transfer surfaces are dramatically impacted by buildup of dirt on the surface.

Cooling Towers

As debris is continuously drawn into the air intake of cooling towers, fouling the cooling water and increasing the need for chemicals to clean up sludge build-up, bacteria proliferation and bio-film on internal surfaces which lead to corrosion of the basin walls.
