• Available for OE and aftermarket applications
JACKSONVILLE, FL (Jan. 21, 2009) - Sy-Klone International introduces the RESPA-SD with Gideon® Technology, a powered filtration system designed to protect operators from harmful particulates and extend HVAC service intervals on machines with enclosed cabs. Applications include mining, construction, crash/fire/rescue, and other severe-service operations.
The RESPA-SD's powered precleaner is unique in the industry. Rather than air being pulled through a precleaner and filter from the HVAC fan motor's draw (thereby increasing airflow resistance), the RESPA-SD powered precleaner actively pushes air into a precleaner (adding no resistance to the airflow), where the largest particles are ejected back into the environment using the patented Gideon® particle separation technology. Precleaned air then flows through the RESPA-SD filter where smaller particles are removed, passing high-quality clean air to the evaporator coils.
Older filtration technologies draw large quantities of dirty air over the filter. The Sy-Klone International RESPA-SD is different because it removes particles from the air before the air reaches the filter. By providing only clean air to the evaporator coils, the HVAC system runs more efficiently and do not need to be serviced as often, which increases uptime and decreases maintenance costs.
Because the HVAC filter is receiving clean air without added resistance, filter life extension of 10-20 times is common with this system. Sy-Klone International recommends replacing the primary HVAC filter at 1000 hours even if the resistance sensor has not indicated that a filter change is needed.
Dust and other particulates are leading causes of premature HVAC component failure, especially the evaporator, which is responsible for absorbing heat in the cab and moving it outside. "By protecting the evaporator coils, the Sy-Klone International RESPA-SD promotes better HVAC performance and uptime," said Jeff Moredock, VP of sales for Sy-Klone International.
The RESPA-SD's long-lasting filter options make it adaptable to a variety of industries and applications. The high-capacity (HC) filter meets MERV 8 standards, providing a general level of protection. Increasing in filtration levels is the DPM filter which meets MERV 16 standards and is capable of dramatic reductions in harmful diesel particulate matter. The highest filtration level is provided by the high-efficiency (HE) filter, which delivers high efficiency particulate arresting or HEPA-level filtration.
Weighing only 11 pounds including the filter, the unit does not cause annoying vibration, as is common with heavier units. Its rugged monolithic construction of engineered polymer gives the unit the strength of steel without the weight. Motor options for 12 or 24 volt are available.
Moredock notes that "the Sy-Klone International RESPA-SD combines the top three things customers want from a powered precleaner and filtration system: multiple filtration options including HEPA-level filtration; a rugged, lightweight design; and extended filter life. It sets a new standard for performance, protection, and uptime in demanding environments."
The Sy-Klone International Precleaner/Filter/PressurizerRESPA-SD with Gideon® Technology was developed by Sy-Klone International, a leader in precleaning air and filtration systems for commercial applications. It is available from Sy-Klone International for original equipment applications and from Sy-Klone International's distributor network for aftermarket applications.
The RESPA-SD is also manufactured for use and distribution by Red DOT Corp., based in Seattle Washington
