Filter Preventative Maintenance Program

Universal Air Filter (UAF), a Filtration Group Company, is the leading OEM source of NEBS filters for rack-mounted telecommunications equipment in Central Office, outdoor cabinet (Edge) and cell sites.  As a part of Filtration Group, we offer complete solutions that are custom tailored to the needs of your company!

Why is filter preventative maintenance (PM) important? Critical network equipment utilizes air filtration to prevent overheating, costly outages, circuit card damage, fan failures and power supply issues. Proper filter maintenance also maintains NEBS standards for fire protection as well as protecting equipment manufacturer warranties. As energy consumption becomes an increasing operating expense, maintaining proper equipment and facility operating temperatures through filtration drives energy efficiency for the end customer.

What solutions does UAF offer?

Everything starts at the Site Survey level. Our experienced technicians complete full equipment audits, creating a detailed cross reference tool for every filter down to the RR and chassis. This allows us to custom package and strategically ship filter orders by site, complete with equipment labels on the filters themselves.
