The company is showcasing its media expertise in the filtration of air, cabin air, oil, fuel for vehicles with internal combustion engines and for vehicles with alternative drives. One of the highlights is media for cabin air filters for pure and clean air in vehicles. The use of a nanofiber layer in filter media increases mechanical separation, keeping the performance of the filters consistently high over their lifetime. PM1 and ultrafine particles, which can cause serious health hazards due to their size, are effectively removed from the air by nanofiber filter media. This creates synergies in other applications, for example Mann+Hummel uses this technology for indoor air filtration in buildings.
Mann+Hummel Life Science & Environment and Mann+Hummel Molecular GmbH are presenting solutions for cleanrooms and buildings against particulate (eg fine dust) and molecular (eg toxic or corrosive gases, solvents, unpleasant odours) contaminants in the air.
Air filter solutions for HVAC applications with A+ energy ratings allow building operators to reduce energy costs. A change from a D rated Airpocket Select ePM1 65% pocket filter according to Eurovent 4/21 to an A+ rated Airpocket Eco ePM1 65% allows an energy saving of 1241 kWh/a and a reduction of the CO2 footprint by 262 kg per year.
For the adsorption of molecular pollutant gases and volatile organic compounds, Mann+Hummel is showing a variety of highly efficient adsorptive filter media and filters based on activated carbon, molecular sieves and ion exchange resins.
The company’s OurAir series of air purifiers will also be on display. With their H14 air filters equipped with ePTFE media, they are an important building block in the fight against viral infections. New features include optionally available activated carbon and FreciousComfort filters for the flexibly deployable units. The air purifiers equipped with these not only catch 99.995% of viruses, bacteria, microorganisms and allergens from the air, but also reduce bad odours as well as harmful and irritant gases. In times of high infection rates and spiralling energy costs, air purifiers can be an effective measure to reduce the risk of infection in private and public buildings, because they consume much less energy than is needed to heat up rooms after ventilation. The air purifiers work quickly and quietly and are available in three sizes, suitable for rooms from 40–200 m².
Mann+Hummel Water & Fluid Solutions is also presenting the membrane bioreactor (MBR) BIO-CEL M+. It is the company’s most versatile solution for wastewater treatment plants to date. BIO-CEL M+ is optimized for use in mobile and medium-sized wastewater treatment plants, and perfectly fits into a High Cube container, which allows the construction of extremely compact decentralized wastewater treatment plants. One unit can treat the wastewater of up to 480 population equivalent (PE) per day, corresponding to the wastewater of about 115 households.
BIO-CEL M+ features the high-performance BIO-CEL UV400T ultrafiltration membrane – specifically developed and optimized for use in membrane bioreactors, offering greater longevity, support and performance – which prevents antibiotic-resistant bacteria from entering the aquatic environment.
Mann+Hummel’s Seccua company is also presenting the UrSpring water filter for single- and multi-family homes. The UrSpring water filter not only reliably removes particles such as microplastics, rust and turbidity, but also up to 99.99999% of bacteria and parasites and up to 99.99% of viruses from drinking water.
Mann+Hummel solutions include qlair, for monitoring air quality in buildings, Senzit, for indicating the status of air filters in construction and agricultural machinery, and Streametric, for monitoring the membrane in wastewater treatment plants.
