R&D and production

As an expert in the field of air filtration and dust removal, Camfil attaches great importance to research and development. Read more about our expertise and facilities below.


In addition to our main research centre, the Tech Center in Trosa, Sweden, Camfil has various R&D centres and laboratories worldwide for investigating the air quality and its effects.

Our centres are completely devoted to the sectors where we are active. Thanks to our unique and patented research apparatus, our research evolves continuously.

As a result, we can continue to innovate, to adapt to changing needs of the market and to meet the most stringent standards when it comes to energy conservation, efficiency, safety and health.


Camfil has been using a patented method for analysing air quality for over ten years. This method is unique in the industry. It collects particles from the air, scans them using an electron microscope and analyses them using X-rays.

The analysis shows the composition of the air and the size and type of the particles. That provides useful insights into the efficiency of our ventilation systems.

Using this method, we can carry out air, gas and dust analyses that convincingly demonstrate the advantages of our efficient air filters.
