Food Processing Air Filtration

Food Processing Air Intake Filters

Help your food processing equipment breathe easy with best-in-class air filtration.  Air quality and temperature must be carefully controlled and monitored within food processing plants, to avoid airborne contaminates that can otherwise result in product spoilage, spur mold growth, and even lead to large-scale outbreaks related to illness or infection.  Not only do food processing air intake filters prevent airborne contaminants from entering your equipment, but quality filters can decrease operating costs at a facility, reduce maintenance and costly line downtime. See how Permatron can solve facility management and contamination issues through the simple installation of our PreVent System air filters.

Food Processing Air Filtration Applications

You need to have uncompromising sanitation and refrigeration standards when it comes to air filtration for the food industry. With Permatron’s PreVent prefilter screens, you can improve the efficiency of many ventilation and cooling applications:

Rooftop HVAC units

Make-up air units

Fresh air louvers


Cooling towers

Recirculating cooling fans

Exhaust vents

Cold storage units

Air compressors

Ice machines

Industrial HVAC equipment for food processing may be similar to that in other industries, but it’s particularly critical for the air intakes of ventilation and cooling systems to be free from excess airborne contaminants due to stringent standards monitored by safety compliance organizations like AIB, CDC, USDA, FDA, and FSIS.

PreVent air intake screens stop airborne contaminants before they ever get inside your food processinf equipment. UV protected for outdoor or indoor environments and custom sized, PreVent fits to the intake enclosure with a variety of mount options. Cleans in minutes with a broom or shop vac.

Maintenance Issues with Air Filtration for Food Processing

Airborne contaminants from ingredient processing or outdoor environmental issues can clog cooling equipment air fins and coils, as well as interior high efficiency air filters.  High dirt loads reduce the lifespan of your high efficiency disposable HVAC filters, increasing your operating expenses through frequent filter changeouts or replacement. Frequent and time-consuming chemical cleaning of the equipment becomes costly as well.  Depending on the location of your air intake units, this can also include the expense of a crane, a dumpster, maintenance technician labor, water access and equipment downtime.

Benefits of Permatron Food Processing Air Intake Filters

There are many food processing air filtration companies, but there’s only one Permatron. Our innovative material, design, and installation process offers a number of financial and food safety benefits:

Convenient Installation: Our unique air filter mount options include magnetic stripping or patented MagnaMount® mount clips using strong magnets for quick and secure installation. They don’t require screws or additional hardware to safely secure filters to your existing system.

Additional Filtration: A PreVent prefilter mounts outside of the air intake opening, so you can easily see dirt build-up. Because it doesn’t replace your existing high efficiency pleats or bag filters, it offers a primary layer of protection to capture larger particulates, while allowing interior air filters to capture smaller particulates.

Superior Air Filtration for Food Processing: Thanks to its electrostatic air filtration design, a Permatron air filters can be used in high-dirt-load industrial environments, indoors and outdoors.

Custom Design: Work with the Permatron team to order custom-fit filters for your air intake specifications. PreVent filters can be finished with flexible vinyl frames and grommets, rigid steel panel style frames up to 2” deep or 3-dimensional fan shrouds, vent caps, socks, and bonnets.

  • Several of our large commercial buildings in Atlanta have purchased the PreVent filtering product for their cooling towers. The benefits of being able to get through our spring season without much intrusion into the building owners equipment has been successful. The product was easy to install and has been simple for the customers to maintain. We are excited to have this product in our line of filtration options.

  • The R2 filters I have sold have worked very well. They do as advertised, by keeping the inside of our air compressors clean. No customer complaints after the sale and no problems with the construction of the washable filters. Your delivery times are fast and your customer service agents are a pleasure to work with. I look forward in continuing our business relationship with Permatron in 2013 and thank you for all of the continued support that we receive in making our compressors work better.

  • I attached a couple of photos of the completed PreVent Screens installed on Trane rooftop units. They fit very well to our dimensions and look good also. Your folks did a good job on matching all of our requested dimensions. I will keep you guys in our contact list as I can see several applications for your product that would be beneficial & it is another product we can offer to our customers.
