Jasun launches new production line in Bridgwater

Wednesday 29th March, 2023

A LEADING Somerset-based UK air filters manufacturer has launched a new production line to make its latest cutting-edge filter range which has self-righting properties and is suitable for damp/wet conditions (March 2023).

Jasun Envirocare is making its new product – designed to help increase filter efficiency, reduce energy consumption and offer greater performance levels – at its factory in Bridgwater.

Colin Hitch, Managing Director at Jasun Envirocare, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year and has sites in the UK and Europe, says: “Our inhouse clean air solution experts have created our new Superpleat Hi-Cap Panel Filters. This new filter has self-righting properties, is suitable for damp and wet conditions, and can be used in any application where a regular disposable panel filter is currently being used.

“They are designed to consistently boost efficiency throughout the filter’s service life, saving businesses that use them in their air filtration systems, both energy and money. What’s also brilliant about these new filters is that they are resilient, which makes them much easier to transport, and virtually eliminates any shipping damage, so we can send them out both nationally and worldwide.

“Companies, particularly in commercial, retail and office environments, and catering and hospitality sectors, all need air filters and filtration systems in place to maintain good air hygiene. Airborne particles can get into your lungs, potentially leading to health conditions. If air from outside is being drawn into a building with a fan, you’ll want to filter it before pumping it into a room, this stops unwanted polluting particles.

“Our Superpleat Hi-Cap Panel Filters are perfect, not just for commercial and industrial use, but also for residential settings – anywhere where clean air is essential for health and wellbeing. They can help prevent all sorts of pollutants from entering a building, and deliver improved indoor air quality.

“Our new panel filters are constructed using a thermally bonded synthetic non-woven media, which is formed into pleats to create an extended filter area for air to flow over.

“The self-supported pleats are sealed into a robust spunbond frame using hotmelt, which ensures a 100% seal at the filter edge. In addition, a hotmelt pleat fix is placed to ensure filter stability and further add to the filter’s strength. This is all done on our production line here in Bridgwater.”

The new automated production line runs continuously during the daytime resulting in a welcome boost in overall panel filter capacity.

Colin adds: “Our new filters are strong, durable and safe – they are Fire Rated F1 DIN53438. They have a low pressure drop, are high dust holding, moisture proof and are better for the environment. This filter is classified as suitable for Waste to Energy (WtE) and providing it is disposed of in this way, zero goes to landfill. Having a lower pressure drop means a reduction in energy consumption and operating costs, which is also better for the planet.

“These filters are ideally suited to site situations where rough handling can take place, where pleated filters are currently in use and higher performance is required. They can run at high airflows and are not prone to collapse or burst.”

As one of the UK’s largest air filter manufacturers, Jasun Envirocare provides a complete range of quality, standard and bespoke, air filters and systems, and all its products are made in Britain.

These include air purifiers, air filters, panel filters, washables, kitchen canopy grease filters, and HEPA filters.

Colin continues: “As well as being specialists in the field of air hygiene, we’re also experts in water hygiene – providing a range of treatment solutions and services for commercial systems, and we’re committed to continuous environmental improvement. Our in-house expertise as air filter manufacturers puts us at the forefront of innovation in the commercial air hygiene and water treatment industry.”

Jasun Envirocare’s new Superpleat Hi-Cap Panel Filters and all its products can be purchased direct from its online one-stop-shop: www.jfilters.com. It was the first air filters company worldwide to offer its full range of products online when the website was launched in 1999.

The company, whose strapline is ‘a breath of fresh air,’ has a proud history and reputation as a provider of quality bespoke and standard filtration products and services.

Jasun Envirocare is the only air filter manufacturer that has a UK based ISO16890 test facility and is committed to continuous environmental improvement.

The company employs more than 200 people at its operational sites in Bridgwater and Waterlooville in the UK and has factories and offices also in Europe.
