In commercial environments, between 10 and 20% of electrical energy is consumed in Europe for the purpose of powering fans in room air conditioning systems. Indeed, one third of the energy requirement alone is required to overcome the flow resistance of the filters used. While it was previously only possible to assess filters based on how effectively they removed particles from the air and not in terms of how energy-efficient they are in operation, the energy-related assessment is now receiving much more attention.

TROX has developed a Life Cycle Cost (LCC) tool in order to calculate the economic efficiency of fine dust filters on the basis of the strict Eurovent energy efficiency classification. With the aid of their individual usage data, customers have the option of selecting the filter that offers the highest level of economic efficiency compared to other filters in terms of investment, energy and maintenance costs.

Energy costs offer the largest savings potential – up to 60% depending on the filter. Influencing criteria for the power consumption and energy efficiency class of filters are, for example, the individual average annual dust pollution, the plant operating time and thus the loading duration of filters and the effective utilisation of installed filter areas.

The costs calculator for TROX filters lets you find out quickly and easily what energy costs various filters incur over time. And this is how it works: the online tool www.trox.de/en/lcc is used to enter the volume flow rate in m³/h in a room air conditioning system. The result shows you the annual energy costs in euros per energy efficiency class.
