Camfil launches new molecular filter

Camfil says its new CamCarb XG HVAC air filter is a game changer in molecular contamination control innovation.

Investment in research and development, focused on fluid dynamics and media adsorption, has led to the optimisation of the shape of the traditional cylinders resulting in minimised pressure drop and maximised media utilisation.

“The CamCarb XG boasts a unique combination of high removal efficiency, low resistance to airflow and long lifetime, resulting in a very low “Total Cost of Ownership” (TCO) for our clients,” says Dr Guillaume Gallet, president of Camfil’s Molecular Contamination Control business division.

“In addition, thanks to its ergonomic design, the time necessary for filter installation and replacement results in up to a 50% reduction versus conventional products, making it a very attractive solution for services and facility management companies. It’s brand-new conical design reduces energy consumption up to 35% and assists end-users to cut down on their CO2 footprint and energy bills.”

The product will be available first in Asia Pacific, followed by Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and North America in the last quarter of 2023, and in China next year.

Molecular contamination control (MCC) products capture molecules, gases and vapors from the air. Those contaminants cannot be trapped by traditional particle filters. Molecular filters are also known as gas-phase filters, chemical air filters or activated carbon filters in different countries and applications.
