CleanAlert has developed an award-winning application to its airflow sensing technology, which detects the moment a facility’s HVAC air filter should be replaced. This technology is known as the FilterScan® WiFi Air Filter Monitor and Notification system.
Located in Oberlin, OH, CleanAlert has created a family of airflow monitoring solutions. The company was found in 2005 in order to commercialize air flow sensing technology developed by Jacob Fraden, the inventor of the infrared ear thermometer.
Filterscan helps reduce the money and time spent by facility management teams for servicing HVAC air filters. Oftentimes, these air filters are serviced too often or too late. FilterScan increases efficiencies by informing facility teams at the exact time when maintenance is required.
How does the technology manage to detect clogs in cooling and heating systems? The product monitors deviations in the differential pressure to monitor filter clogging, essentially saving a substantial amount of guesswork. When a filter needs to be serviced, the FilterScan offers audio and visual alerts.
The system is customizable, enabling facility managers to receive a text or e-mail notification to their computer, mobile, or handheld device when the system detects a clog in an air filter outfitted with FilterScan.
Notifications can be sent to maintenance technicians and building managers, ensuring they are kept in the loop for any upkeep. And, all alert messages can be tailored to contain information that is most pertinent for the facility executive, while also providing continued notifications until the filter has been replaced. On-demand reports of the remaining life of all monitored air filters can be provided, regardless of their location.
Installation and recalibration of Filterscan are simple. The device can be battery operated, or hardwired 15-24VAC/DC, 6V wall adapte.
FilterScan is compatible with a wide variety of filters and with single, multi-speed and most VAV HVAC systems. It meets all regulatory guidelines for radiating and conductive emissions in the United States, Canada and elsewhere.
