Webasto North America now offers HFT 300 and HFT 600 high-efficiency air cleaners which use medical-grade HEPA-14 filtration media and can be installed almost anywhere inside vehicles.

Using high-velocity, twin-axial fan motors, Webasto’s new air cleaners have rapid air exchange rates that can meet or exceed CDC guidelines. The HFT 300 delivers up to 5 cubic meters of purified air per minute or 300 cubic meters per hour, while the HFT 600 can process and clean up to 10 cubic meters of air per minute or 600 cubic meters per hour.

“Webasto’s HFT 300 and HFT 600 high-efficiency air cleaners provide fleet operators with a practical, immediate and reliable solution for vehicles in service and on the road today,” said Matt Wheeler, head of HVAC light and medium duty for Webasto North America.

The HEPA-14 filters remove 99.995% of airborne particles equal to or greater than 0.3 microns. A single intake port is located on one end of the unit and decontaminated air is released in all directions, around its circumference. Each unit’s filter monitoring feature senses when its filter needs to be changed and an LED light alerts users when it’s time for maintenance. Most filters should last six to 12 months.

A filter-handling tool provided with each replacement filter to help isolate and contain contaminants during filter replacement and disposal. Both HFT 300 and HFT 600 systems use commercially available, cylindrical H14 filters. The air cleaners use integrated mounting brackets and are compatible with 12- and 24-volt electrical systems and optional wire harness kits, including mating connectors, fuse, fuse holder and ring terminals, are also available.
