HVN Air Conditioning Product of the Year

Award in UK for low-energy Hi-Flo

Camfil Farr’s subsidiary in the United Kingdom has received three awards this year – and is short-listed for another four – in recognition of recent achievements on national level within the British air filtration and HVAC industries.

The most recent award this summer was for “Air Conditioning Product of the Year” for Camfil Farr’s low-energy air bag filter, the Hi-Flo M7 H7, which delivers the required level of clean air in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems while consuming the minimum amount of energy.

The Hi-Flo filter was cited for its ability to provide high-efficiency grade filtration to address indoor air quality problems by removing contaminants and delivering consistent and reliable sub-micron protection in turbulent or varying airflows.

Hi-Flo’s  particle capture performance, which is unaffected by coarse dust concentration and elevated humidity – and the bag filter’s lowest life cycle cost for any application – were other characteristics that helped win the Air Conditioning Product of the Year prize.

The awards covered several categories and were sponsored by H&V News. Judges looked for genuinely new innovation or a novel application of existing technology to new. Aesthetic effect, efficiency and the demonstration of commercial success were other factors that were taken into account.

Earlier in 2011, Camfil Farr UK was also the recipient of the MITIE Supplier Overall Award for Carbon Reduction, and the Energy & Environmental Awards SME Sustainable Business/Highly Commended prize.

Previous awards

The UK subsidiary has previously won a number of other awards in 2010 and 2009 for Camfil Farr’s energy-reducing filters and sustainable manufacturing practices.

In 2010, the company became the first UK manufacturing company to be awarded the British Standards Institution’s (BSI) Energy Management System standard BS EN 16001, and the first to join BSI’s Energy Reduction Verification (ERV) Kitemark scheme, which verifies and certifies organisations achieving a reduction in carbon emissions through lower energy use.

A third prize in 2010 was the Groundwork EN Works Sustainability Award.
