Specially designed for use in AHU setups, Honeywell’s commercial air purifiers consistently deliver best-in-class air purification. Natural-like , safe air with negligible AHU efficiency loss!
An Electronic Air Cleaner (EAC), also known as Electrostatic Precipitator or Electrostatic Air Cleaner uses an electric charge to remove impurities – either solid particles or liquid droplets – from the air. It functions by applying energy only to the particulate matter to be collected without significantly impeding airflow.
Originally designed for the recovery of valuable industrial process materials, EACs are used for air pollution control, particularly for removing particles from waste gases at industrial facilities and power-generating stations. Today, they’re also used for indoor air pollution control.
A Honeywell two-stage EAC consists of two sections – a charging section and a collection section. A high voltage is applied to the ionising wires to form a strong electric field between them. Electrons present in contaminated air (containing pollutants like fine dust, smoke particles, pollens, mould spores, bacteria, etc.) are pushed at high velocity from the negatively charged electric field to the positively charged electric field. Along the way, they collide with the contaminants, releasing more electrons. The ionised particles are moved by the moving air into the strong electric field at the collectors and trapped at the charged collector plates.
Honeywell EACs offer opportunities to reduce energy consumption and ecological footprint by:
Honeywell EACs meet the MERV 14 rating, the highest among all EACs available in the market today.
ISHRAE recommends that facility owners upgrade the filtration on their AHUs to MERV 13 or above, plus add UV lights to disinfect coils. The combination can help counter harmful biological contaminants and particulate matter. With Honeywell EACs, the efficiency on 0.3-micron particles is approx 87%, and on 0.1-micron particles is 70-80%. With microbial contaminants, the efficiency of Honeywell EACs is above 90%. Honeywell UV with equal distribution across the coil and accurate dosage can help counter most biological contaminants.
