PRESS RELEASE: Sy-Klone Introduces Award-Winning RESPA-CF Vortex HyperFLOW Cab Air Quality System
Jacksonville, FL, 2011 –Building on its reputation as a technological innovator and the leading manufacturer of powered precleaning devices, Sy-Klone International, is pleased to announce the introduction of the RESPA-CF Vortex HyperFLOW Cab Air Quality System. The system is unique because it offers a compact precleaner and filtration system capable of pressurizing a wide range of operator cabs while filtering fresh and recirculated air at or near HEPA levels. An electronic pressure sensor is included in the system which continuously monitors cab pressure and provides an output signal for remote monitoring system integration.
“This is a comprehensive, cost-effective air quality system developed to consistently provide extremely clean air to enclosures typically found in heavy equipment, agriculture, mining, waste, material handling, forestry, firefighting and military applications.” according to Jeff Moredock, VP Sales.
With a focus on providing a system to help with regulatory compliance while providing the highest, sustainable air quality at the absolute lowest cost of maintenance, Sy-Klone has exceeded customer expectations. “We are going places with our RESPA-CF Vortex HyperFLOW Cab Air Quality System that are impossible without powered precleaning and Sy-Klone’s unique Vortex HyperFLOW. Extended filter life and maintenance intervals are huge benefits for HVAC components and cab electronics affected by heavy debris concentrations.”

The cost-effective RESPA Cab Air Quality System comprehensively filters all cab environment air flows while continuously monitoring cab pressure. The RESPA Cab Air Quality System combines recently invented (patents pending 2011) compact format with a high-efficiency mechanical separation powered precleaning technology creating high-efficiency filtration. It also offers powered low restriction inline compact recirculation filtration and real-time pressure monitoring. The Vortex HyperFLOW® Precleaner/Filter/Pressurizer takes out over 90% of the particulate down to 5 microns by creating a vortex around the filter media while passing debris along the filter housing wall and out of the rear of the filter housing. The clean air which exists in the vortex is pushed through the proprietary MERV 16 filter and into the HVAC Fresh air inlet. By removing most particulate from the air flows prior to the filter, filter life is exponentially increased. Unique high-efficiency filter media allows for regulatory compliance, extended maintenance intervals on dirt sensitive cab electronics, HVAC evaporator core, operator health and increased operator and machine productivity.
