Metal Mesh Air Filters

Rugged outdoor and industrial filters

Metal Mesh air filters offer a semi-permanent, cleanable air filtration solution, suited for outdoor environments, with integrated EMI shielding capabilities.  Metal Mesh filters are ideal for use in harsh environments where rugged, washable and reusable filters are most appropriate.  Metal Mesh filters are available in all frame configurations, from roll-formed channels to ultra-thin stamped sheet metal.

Each Metal Mesh air filter model performs with a high degree of dust arrestance when installed in industrial machinerymilitary and power generation equipment where permanent type, cleanable filters are required. ME-2X, ME-3, ME-5, ME-5X filters have been specially designed for equipment where space is limited. Order a free air filter prototype for your application today.

Pad Filters +/-.12″ length & width, +/-.06″ thickness

Metal Mesh media consists of layers of aluminum slit and expanded into various thickness grades including 0.25″ and 0.50″.

Metal Mesh media consists of layers of aluminum slit and expanded into various thickness grades.  Metal Mesh configurations are matched with customer application requirements to provide the optimal combination of dust capturing and dust holding capacity while minimizing resistance to airflow.  Metal Mesh filters are ideal for use in harsh environments where rugged, washable and reusable filters are most appropriate.  Metal Mesh filters are popular in industrial enclosure, outdoor cabinets and applications requiring EMI shielding in a single, low-cost assembly.

Roll formed into a strong sturdy one-piece channel, using .025″ thick, 3000 series aluminum. Frame is tightly fitted to filter media and fastened with an aluminum rivet. The UL listing, model number and air flow direction are roll imprinted into the frame. Part number is metal stamped into frame for quick, accurate identification.

In addition to the standard roll formed frame design, more custom options are also available. The Windowpane style frame allows for highly customizable, non-rectangular frame profiles.
