Camfil’s database of credible people and projects will work with your facility to find the solution that meets your regulations and standards, wherever you are.
In 2019 the BRCGS released a revision to their Global Food Safety Guideline. In this revision the requirements for Indoor air Quality and Air filtration have been expanded to give a clearer understanding of what is needed to pass BRCGS audits
Filtration is a physical, biological or chemical operation that separates solid matter – and sometimes fluids – from a mixture with a filter medium that has a complex structure through which only certain elements of the air (or fluid) can pass.
The international test standard ISO 16890 for air filters for general ventilation
Some processes are more sensitive than others. If you work in the food and beverage or life science industries, you know how tough the demands on clean air are. To be sure you have the right filter, look for the ProSafe symbol.
Two important international initiatives are set to impact on filtration in the home and at work to protect occupants from poor indoor air quality (IAQ). Whether small or large, the end product of our air filters is clean air.
Ambient air quality has improved considerably in the last few decades by a range of measures. However, there is convincing evidence that current levels of air pollution still pose a considerable risk to human health.
This standard provides the first opportunity for global harmonisation as it proceeds to replace the two existing localised standards; ASHRAE 52.2 which is dominant in USA and EN779:2012 which is dominant in Europe.
Humans eat 1kg of food each day, drink 2,5 kg of fluids and breathe more than 15kg of air per day. We take care about the food we eat and the water that we drink, but rarely do we consider the air we breath. Find out more with our Take A Breath infographics.
