AAF® Announces SAAFDetect™ Visual Air Quality Indicator

SAAFDetect Determines the Presence of Gases at a Fraction of the Cost, Within 24 Hours

LOUISVILLE, KY--(Marketwire - January 19, 2010) - AAF® International, manufacturer of American Air Filter® and AAF products, is proud to announce the SAAFDetect™ Visual Air Quality Indicator (Beta Version).

AAF's SAAFDetect Visual Air Quality Indicator provides information on the presence of gases that have the potential to cause irritation, degrade stored materials, corrode electronics, and cause odors. Historically gas concentration measurement or gas detection has been an expensive undertaking. SAAFDetect presents a more cost effective solution for building or facility managers to evaluate the simple presence of gas-phase contaminants at their site.

SAAFDetect provides an easy, relatively quick, visual indication of gas presence and an estimate of gas concentrations, to be used to evaluate the need for gas-phase filtration equipment, estimate existing filter efficiency, or point toward the need for more analytical methods. Building owners or facility managers can use this tool to perform initial evaluations and document the results through the use of a web based tool. The SAAFDetect Visual Air Quality Indicator can be used in multiple applications ranging from commercial buildings, museums and archives to petrochemical refineries, pulp and paper mills, and wastewater plants.

AAF International, which is based in Louisville, Kentucky, has more than 2,600 employees, 25 manufacturing facilities, and 5 R&D centers worldwide supporting sales offices in 69 countries. AAF designs, develops, and manufactures air filtration solutions for commercial, residential, industrial, cleanroom, transportation, fossil fuel plants, and nuclear power applications. It also provides inlet air cooling and sound attenuation solutions for high-speed rotating machinery.
