Megalam EnerGuard

Megalam EnerGuard is the latest terminal HEPA/ULPA filter developed by Camfil specifically for the life science industries through years of research and application testing.

THE MAGIC IS IN THE MEDIA

The best features of all HEPA filter media types.

UNIQUE MEDIA DEVELOPED AFTER YEARS OF CONTINUOUS RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Camfil’s EnerGuard media is resistant to damage during handling and operation while still providing the efficiencies required to maintain ISO cleanroom class levels.

FITS ALL EXISTING CONFIGURATIONS

Immediately substitutable into existing filter configurations, requiring no changes of other filter components or materials, installation or testing and validation processes, or HVAC and filter equipment.

What Makes EnerGuard the Only Choice ...

 
 
 

ENERGUARD ROBUSTNESS

Handling Forgiveness for More Operation Efficiency

Protect your process, product, profits, and people from inadvertent filter damage. Megalam EnerGuard filters offer outstanding robustness to reduce the risk of airborne particulate leakage from tears, punctures, and rips in the filter media which is common from mishandling during installation and validation.

Typically 5-30% of glass fiber media filters are replaced at installation due to inappropriate handling. Megalam EnerGuard will not only eliminate the expense of replacement filters and reduce the need for spares, but most importantly will reduce cleanroom downtime while waiting for re-installation and re-validation.

 
 
 

MEGALAM ENERGUARD VERSUS ALTERNATIVES

 
 
 

ENERGY SAVINGS Up to 50%

The costs of circulating and cleaning air are often the highest operating expense in a modern cleanroom. Megalam EnerGuard features significantly lower energy consumption compared to traditional glass fiber filters and lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than ePTFE filters.
 
 
 

PROSAFE MEANS PROCESS SAFETY — YOUR PROCESS

The life sciences industry faces tough demands in achieving clean air. Be careful choosing an air filter. The filter must protect your products from particulate contamination, and must prevent undesirable materials from entering into your process.

When you see the ProSafe symbol, you know the filter has been made with qualified materials that offer the maximum process safety. There is full material and process traceability and control.

  • Designed for process safety.
  • Every filter is scanned and leak tested at the factory.
  • Thorough qualification and testing of all raw materials.
  • ISO 846 approved (for microbial inertness).
  • VDI6022 approved for moisture and corrosion resistance in hygienic HVAC applications.
  • Chemical inertness to all common cleaning agents.
  • Formaldehyde, phthalate, and bisphenol A (BPA)-free materials.
 
 
 

EFFICIENCIES AND OFFERINGS

Available in efficiencies of 99.95% (H13), 99.995% (H14), and 99.9995% (U15) @ 0.1-0.2 μm.
 
 
 

Megalam EnerGuard Development

Continuous Innovation, Technology & Research

Camfil invests heavily in research and development because it is a very important part of our future and the future of air filtration. With numerous labs and testing capabilities around the world, Camfil is able to analyze performance requirements and use the information to develop the best filtration system for your needs.

HEPA FILTER LIFETIME TEST GRID

 Camfil has created a new HEPA filter lifetime test grid, to assist the Megalam EnerGuard development effort and provide the most scientifically advanced HEPA filter analysis in the world. Camfil can control the airflow, particulate< contamination concentration, temperature, humidity, scan test and filter challenge simulations, as well as most other variables affecting a filter’s service life.

Camfil’s HEPA Filter Lifetime Test Grid, Riverdale, New Jersey.

The Grid monitors all key performance characteristics of the test filters, nine of which can be simultaneously tested not for hours or days but weeks and months, to develop a scientifically derived predictive model.

Testing Acquisitions and Upgrades

For decades, Camfil’s market position has been that of leadership through science and application analysis. In addition to the Grid, see above, Camfil has augmented its technical leadership with recent acquisitions and upgrades.

  • Solid particle and oil aerosol loading apparatus:  accelerates loading of flat sheet media sample.s
  • Flat sheet discharge chamber:  analyzes performance of flat sheet media samples.
  • Laser aerosol spectrometer:  characterizes aerosol and particulate pollution.
  • Automated filter tester:  determines filter efficiencies and most penetrating particle sizes.
  • Scanning electron microscope (SEM):  examines materials down to nanometer sizes.
  • Gas chromatograph:  mass spectrometer with thermal desorption and headspace capability.  Analyzes materials for outgassing characteristics.
