It’s not enough to install an air filtration unit and expect it to work perfectly for the next 10 – 20 years without regular maintenance and replacing the elements.

Most companies and individuals have a set changeover period. This may be when a batch of a certain substance has been run or when the pressure drop reaches a certain number or as a standard maintenance schedule.

This maintenance ensures you get the best operating life from your filtration unit and prevents the filters becoming contaminated and potentially passing this down the ducting.

The downside is when the maintenance schedule breaks down – below is an example of an extreme case of filter neglect.

This filter was part of a kitchen extract unit and had not been replaced in over 10 years. EMCEL will always recommend replacing your filters before they get to this stage to promote efficient air filtration and odour control.
