Data Center Air Filters & Filtration

PreVent Air Intake Filter System

Because data centers are often located in large open spaces and surrounded by trees and nature, their rooftop HVAC equipment is highly vulnerable to debris, bugs, leaves and dust. Cottonwood in particular can be a problem. Unfortunately, cleaning HVAC units can be time-consuming and difficult. They may be hard to get to, be far away from a water supply and are easily damaged unless cleaned by a professional. The answer to this problem is simple: PreVent air intake filters. PreVent air intake filters are mounted outside the HVAC unit or cooling tower, keeping dirt away from coils, and keeping interior air filters cleaner and lasting longer.

Permatron’s Data Center Air Filters Keep Outside Contaminants From Getting In

PreVent Installation Cooling Tower

Cooling Towers

When wet cottonwood forms a tough, paste-like material, cleaning it means unit downtime and excess labor. PreVent eliminates cottonwood from getting into fill material and strainers.

Fresh Air Intakes

Provides a first line of defense for plain metal mesh and pleated filters. PreVent air intake filters can extend the life of pleats 2-3x by capturing larger particles before they reach high-efficiency filters.

Dry Coolers

Reduces the need for time-consuming coil cleaning in hard to reach or tight working areas. PreVent air intake filters, in comparison, can simply be brushed clean.

When it Comes to Keeping Data Centers Cool and Business Costs Down— THERE’S ONLY 1 PERMATRON.

Did you know?

The average cost to a data center from a single power outage in downtime alone is nearly $700,000. Keeping equipment performing smoothly, without excess power disruption, can save a data center operator millions of dollars a year.

Permatron protects Data Centers and keeps them profitable

Your IT equipment isn’t the only critical part of your Data Center. Permatron data center air filters make a difference.

  • 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.
