Fan filter unit price is one of the most important factors to consider when customers are interested in fan filter units and want to install FFUs for their laboratories, clean rooms, etc.
In this article, VCR – Vietnam Cleanroom Equipment will analyze the main factors that decide the fan filter unit price so that customers will have the best option for their projects.
Fan filter unit (or FFU) is an air-cleaning device, which is used to filter the air inside cleanrooms, laboratories in semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics plants and etc.
Fan filter unit is composed mainly of a casing, fan, filter and motor. FFU provides the unidirectional and clean airflow through HEPA/ULPA filter to the room with very little turbulence, thereby minimizing the risk of contamination in cleanroom.
FFU is normally ceiling-mounted. In large cleanrooms, the number of FFUs ranges from hundreds to thousands.
Fan filter unit poses many outstanding features as follows:
- Self-powered device
- Suitable for both softwall and hardwall cleanrooms
- Very low operating noise, small vibration
- Low power consumption, low operating cost
- Compact and firm structure
- Easy installation
Due to its advantages, fan filter units are ideal for a variety of cleanrooms from class 10 000 to class 1. FFUs can also be used for other cleaning devices, such as portable cleanrooms, clean benches, clean booths, and so on.
What are the main factors determining fan filter unit price?
“How much does a fan filter unit cost?” is the most common question we get. Unfortunately, this is a pretty loaded question that does not bode well for a simple and straightforward answer.
There are 5 main points determining the price of fan filter unit: FFU material, FFU size, FFU air volume, quantity and types of filters.
1. FFU material
Fan filter unit material on the market is diverse. Aluminum-zinc, galvanized steel, powder-coated, sus 201 stainless steel, sus 304 stainless steel, to name a few.
Sus 304 stainless steel is corrosion-resistant and has strong performance stability, which meets the requirements of cleanrooms. The value determines the price.
Therefore, the price of stainless steel fan filter unit is higher than that of aluminum-zinc and galvanized steel FFU.
2. FFU size
FFUs can be customized according to customer’s requests.
VCR (Vietnam Cleanroom Equipment) provides two FFU standard sizes (W x L x H): 1175x575x180 and 575x575x180.
The price of FFU 1175 is higher than the price of FFU 575.
3. FFU air volume
The standard airflow is 1080 m³/h for FFU 1175 and 550 m³/h for FFU 575.
If you have air volume requirements, VCR will customize them for you.
The more you buy, the more benefits you get. On buying FFUs in bulk, you will receive a bunch of compelling sales promotions from the supplier. Therefore, the per-unit price will be lower than the retail per-unit price.
5. Filter types
Fan filter units are commonly equipped with HEPA filter, so they are called HEPA fan filter units.
In terms of filtration efficiency, HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are divided into 2 types: H13 and H14. HEPA H13 filter can remove 99.95% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns, while HEPA H14 can remove 99.995%.
Some fan filter units use ULPA filter (Ultra Low Penetration Air Filter) with a filtration efficiency of 99.9995% of particles down to 1.2 microns.
Choosing what types of filters depends on your use purpose.
How much is fan filter unit?
The price of FFU depends on many factors as above. In general, the fan filter unit price range is from 150$ to 400$ each.
