New Camfil Pathogen Barrier Pro combines high efficiency and strength to help reduce risk of swine viruses.
July 28, 2015
AP (Automated Production Systems) has introduced an advanced new filter to help reduce the risk of swine viruses in pork production facilities. The Camfil Pathogen Barrier Pro uses a unique, specially designed glass/synthetic hybrid media, offering the benefits of both.
The efficiency of the glass media provides a particle capture efficiency of more than 95% on the most virulent particles sizes that hold the highest concentration of viruses and travel considerable distances. The new filter also offers the strength and durability of a synthetic filtration media to reduce the potential for installation and handling damage, further reducing the risk of livestock exposure to airborne contaminants such as porcine epidemic diarrhea virus and porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus.
"The combined efficiency from fine fiber glass and the durability from synthetic components is five times stronger than standard glass media and provides the best possible protection against outbreaks,” AP product manager Brian Rieck said. “Like other Camfil filters, the Pathogen Barrier Pro filter is designed to stay in service for three to four years, with no loss in performance.”
