  • New Case Study – Bespoke Solutions December 5, 2018

    Check out our new Case Study: Protecting Children and Employees in a South London Nursery School located on a Busy Road, from Pollution.

    Airclean were approached by a South London Nursery School, located on a busy road with both NOx levels and Particulate Matter Levels that exceeded target limit concentrations from the local authority.

    This Case Study reflects on the design scheme Airclean produced to protect the children and employees from the potential ingress of outdoor pollution being brought into the building.

  • Polyfoam Washable Filter Media – Grading Infographic October 16, 2018

    Polyfoam Washable Air Filter Media offers a re usable and resilient solution for the filtration of coarse to medium size particulates in air.  Polyurethane Air Filter Foam is made up of a micro porous structure, allowing it to capture particulates of varying sizes through a range of efficiencies.

    Polyfoam is not tested against the typical filtration standards, but instead is graded against its pore density in “Pores per inch” or “PPI”.  To help our customers distinguish the differences between these densities, we have produced a new info graphic:

    20ppi polyfoam washable filter media will provide adequate protection to computing components from general household dust or is often used to protect air conditioning chillers.  Towards the other end of the grading range, 45ppi polyfoam media has the capacity to catch smaller particulate matter and is often compared to G4 filters in the EN779 grading system, and is used where there is a requirement for a higher quality or air.

    When selecting an air filter grade, resistance to airflow should always be carefully considered to ensure the desired flow rate through the filter media is achieved.  Low grade polyfoam materials such as 20 and 30 PPI offer a low resistance allowing for maximum airflow through the filter, whereas 45 and 60 PPI have a significantly higher pressure drops and need a more powerful fan to maintain good airflow through the filter.

  • New Risk Assessment for Kitchen Odour June 26, 2018

    We are making it simpler to assess your odour control needs with our new risk assessment form for restaurants and commercial kitchens. This form shows all the necessary information our technical team need to make an initial selection of Odour Control Equipment that may be suitable for use in your catering establishment.

    By providing contact details and answering four simple multiple-choice questions about your kitchen:

    • Air dispersion and discharge
    • Proximity of receptors
    • Size of kitchen
    • Cooking type (for odour and grease)

    Airclean will score your establishment in conjunction with DEFRAs guide. With this information and a duty airflow, Airclean will assist you in creating a specification for your Kitchen Exhaust Odour Control System.

    DEFRA’s “Guidance on the Control of Odour and Noise from Commercial Kitchen Exhaust Systems” is oftern used by local authority Environmental Health Officers as a basis of odour mitigation for restaurants seeking change of use, or planning consent.

  • Updated: The Specification for Kitchen Ventilation Systems (DW/172) From BESA January 30, 2018

    The awaited new revision of “The Specification for Kitchen Ventilation Systems (DW/172)”  from BESA (The Building Engineering Services Association) was officially launched earlier this month (January 2018).  The DW/172 is the industries go to guide for kitchen ventilation design and sets the benchmark for safe and effective ventilation in commercial kitchens.

    The new revised DW/172 Specification has promised many updates since the previous 2005 version in the following key areas.

    • An updated coefficient schedule for use when determining the extract duty of a canopy.
    • A greatly needed new section on solid fuel equipment.
    • An updated lighting section.
    • A new section on “demand controlled” kitchen ventilation, which addresses increasing the use of smart technologies to aid energy efficiency in the commercial kitchen.
    • Updates in pollution control for the kitchen, including addressing the indoor air quality of the kitchen.
    • A new section on re circulation ventilation.
    • Changes and updates to cleaning and maintenance requirements of the kitchen ventilation systems.

    Whilst not suggested as a key area, there have been updates in regards to grease smoke and odour control filtration in the new DW/172.

    Airclean Kitchen Extract Filtration products, including Grease Filters (Seperators), Activated Carbon Filters, HEPA Filters (E10), Ozone Systems and Electrostatic Precipitators on their own or in combinations to meet the requirments of DW/172 and aid the removal of Grease, Smoke and Odour in commercial kitchen extracts.
