Designed to improve indoor air quality by preventing harmful airborne contaminants, including up to 99.5% of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) pollution, from entering a home, NOX-FILT is the name of a new in-line carbon filter range from Domus Ventilation.
Installed on the supply leg of the ducting system of a mechanical ventilation system, NOX-FILT works seamlessly with the system to deliver fresh, filtered air into main living areas.
There are two units in the range, the first being the NOX-FILT which houses a carbon filter cell only, and the second, the NOX-FILT 2.5,which has the added benefit of a PM2.5 pre-filter to maximise the filtration of particulate matter equal or larger in size to 2.5 microns.
With safe levels of NO2 and PM2.5 regularly breached in the UK, these pollutants are a major cause for concern to public health, having known links to allergies, asthma, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cardiovascular disease and even dementia.
The NOX-FILT is described as a cost-effective means of achieving this in new build properties and has been designed to work with the company’s range of high-performance mechanical ventilation systems, including the HRXE, HRX2D and HRX-aQ MVHR ranges, as well as with other manufacturers’ systems.
Easy to use and designed to fit in restricted spaces, the NOX-FILT has no adjustable running functions and the only maintenance required is filter replacement. The life expectancy of the main carbon filter is two years and the PM2.5 filter one year, depending on the installation environment.
