A properly-ventilated caging system means a reduced cost in labor, money, and resources. Finding long term cost solutions by designing the right air filter is the key for success. APC Filtration works with global OEM’s to design custom air filters for animal caging systems and the caging industry. There are a variety of considerations to make when designing custom air filters and HEPA filters for animal caging systems, and APC takes all of these into account when designing custom air filters for clients.

Animal Caging Projects

APC was contacted by a major American manufacturer of animal caging systems to design and build custom HEPA filters for rodent caging system and workstation. There are a variety of standards that the HEPA filters had to meet, as laid out by the National Research Council. These standards include a minimum 85-95% ASHRAE efficient filtration to remove airborne particles, a special consideration for volatile substances, and unique filtration requirements depending on the animal’s needs. In the case of this client, a HEPA filter was required to remove 99.97% of 0.3 micron particles while still meeting the NRC’s strict standards for animal caging in the United States.

APC was able to exceed design and test requirements and reduces downtime and maintenance on their caging systems. APC Filtration knows the health and comfort of the animals is just as important as the health of researchers and employees, and we work to ensure that the air filters employed are efficient and right for the job.
