These latest-generation WhisperFlow™ Fan Filter Units incorporate electronically commutated (EC) motors, a proprietary baffling system and backward-inclined fans to reduce lifetime cost of ownership and increase operational performance.

The low-energy, electrically-commutated (EC) fan/filter units comply with energy-efficiency standards such as California's Title 24 and the European Union's ErP 2015 Directive. Brushless DC motors have internal micro-processors, and lower decibel levels than mechanical AC motors.

Using a smart control system, these consume only 95 watts @90 FPM—greatly reducing cleanroom operating costs. They can help earn LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points, further reducing operating cost. They generate less heat and noise than AC FFUs, and provide a much wider flow range, from 110 to 980 CFM, making them ideal for applications involving high static pressure.

Their smart motor also allows greater control capabilities. Low-energy DC units can be incorporated into Building Management Systems to allow remote monitoring and control. They can also be adjusted via IR transmitters from inside the room, or via a remote touchscreen PLC console. Off-hour set-back feature puts the entire cleanroom in low-energy mode, saving additional energy costs when the room is not in use.

FFU Challenge Port

Air filters keep your environment clean, but validating their integrity can be cumbersome and knowing when to replace them is a challenge. Room designs, applications and staffing make each cleanroom unique. Therefore, it’s important to get baseline measurements of your equipment when first installed, and then set up a schedule for regular monitoring.

Tubing fits into both the orange challenge port valve and the Magnehelic® gauge to easily record FFU pressure differential.
Upgrade your fan/filter unit (FFU) to include a Terra-installed Challenge Port that both simplifies leak testing and helps establish a filter replacement schedule. The port is 3/8"-diameter, nickel-plated brass adapter fitting with a white polypropylene plug.

Learn more about Terra's FFU Challenge Port.

Price includes installation on specified FFUs.
