Freudenberg Nonwovens Introduces MicronAir®
Germany-based Freudenberg Nonwovens reports its micronAir® office Fine Dust Filter for copiers, fax machines and laser printers dramatically reduces fine dust and toner particles emitted by those machines, thereby improving office air quality.
The filter - certified as effective by TÛV Nord Group, a Germany-based technical service provider - comprises three layers of environmentally neutral, completely recyclable nonwovens, one of which contains electrostatically charged microfibers. The layers permanently bind particles of any size and chemical composition, according to Freudenberg.
"With the micronAir office Fine Dust Filter, we are offering users an economical product that provides efficient protection from fine dust pollution in the office," said Harald von Schischka, the company's Fine Dust Filter project leader.
The new filter is available in three models, suitable for most types of printing machines. According to the company, it is easily installed over the machine's ventilation grid; does not affect the machine's performance; is effective for 12 months or 70,000 pages; and does not require special waste disposal methods.
