Airports are a melting pot for a wide variety of substances that lead to poor air quality. On the one hand, thousands of people meet here every day, and on the other hand, there are many different emission sources. In addition to air pollution that is caused directly by humans, especially when many individuals are in the same place, many vehicles are moving directly at or around the airport that emit exhaust gases. In addition, there is odor pollution from restaurants or from maintenance and repair work on the building. The greatest pollution of the air, however, is represented by aircraft exhaust fumes. These are not only odorous, but are also dangerous for passengers and airport staff.
Air filtration systems in airports must handle very large volumes of air. Approximately 50% of a building’s energy consumption goes to the heating, cooling, and moving of air. In considering the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), it is important to keep in mind that in order to have a cost-effective building, planning maintenance is an important step in maintaining energy efficiency, minimizing costly downtime, and extending the lifespan of your equipment.
At the same time highest possible control of airborne particles and molecular pollutants is required to protect passengers and airport staff to provide a comfortable, healthy and odor-free environment.
AAF can offer the full set of air filtration equipment needed to operate airport air handling units. Besides highly efficiency particle filters, meeting highest requirements, AAF can provide activated carbon gas phase filters and equipment to reliable remove unpleasant odors as well as harmful gases like aircraft exhaust fumes and diesel fumes.
