Pacific Ventilation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Systemair AB Group Sweden, a global ventilation company, and Deltrian, a leading Belgian filter manufacturer, have joined forces to launch a new generation of virucidal filters for air handling units (AHUs).
The DELTRI+ filters are Eurovent Certified and contain advanced plasma technology capable of neutralising or destroying 99 per cent of all viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, as tested by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology.
The filters are already available in most of Europe and many other markets worldwide and will now be available in Australia and New Zealand exclusively from Pacific Ventilation.
With the DELTRI+, building owners can quickly improve existing units before considering more extensive upgrades to their ventilation systems.
Compared with other methods utilised for virus prevention, the DELTRI+ filters offer a more straightforward solution that is easy to apply and manage. Furthermore, for facility managers, the filters enable additional safety when exchanged.
Jurgen Alexius, owner and CCO, Deltrian, said the company is proud to cooperate with one of the world’s leading ventilation companies in launching DELTRI+.
“Systemair AB Group’s technical expertise and long-term market knowledge have proven invaluable in the development of this solution,” he said.
“We are delighted to say that DELTRI+ can capture and inactivate viruses. Its effectivity is proven in dry and wet environments, open and closed circuits alike. In addition, the filters reduce the risk of transmission and proliferation of viruses and bacteria in the air.
“While it does not replace other preventive measures, we consider it a hands-on contribution to support a return to a more normal life.”
Peter Gibson, managing director, Pacific Ventilation, said operators do not need to worry about significantly increasing energy costs with this solution.
“Despite its virucidal functions and being classified ISO16890 ePM1 90 per cent, the filter holds a Eurovent Certified Performance A+ energy class rating, ensuring a low-pressure drop and market-leading dust holding capacity with the best possible energy efficiency,” Gibson said.
Pacific Ventilation is the only HVAC manufacturer in Australia or New Zealand to offer air filters with DELTRI+ as replacement filters in standard and special sizes for existing AHUs, independent from their brand.
In addition, all newly built Pacific Ventilation AHUs can be shipped with DELTRI+ as an optional order item. Customers can order the product directly through any Pacific Ventilation branch, account manager, or by contacting their headquarters in Melbourne.
