Camfil Farr recently released LCC 2010, the latest version of its life cycle costing software for air filters, to allow users to achieve the lowest life cycle cost for an air-handling unit, while fulfilling the highest indoor air quality. Instead of using theoretical averages, according to the company, the software calculates filter pressure loss and actual lifespan using real-life data (collected from thousands of installations and tests) to guide users to the best-performing filter with the lowest possible energy consumption and environmental impact. The company says that the LCC 2010 additionally boasts:
- The reduction of energy usage and operating costs by using Camfil Farr air filters with the highest efficiency and the lowest pressure drop for a given application, as the average energy expense related to filters is 30 percent of the total air-handling unit operations cost.
- Continuously updated data.
- The generation of multi-solution calculations and graphical reports.
- A suite of analysis tools for calculations involving numerous application areas.
- The simplification of report preparation.
- Easy transfer of data and information between users and PCs.
- The display of a broad range of valuable reference information.
- Recommendations for energy-saving fan speeds.
