Industrial Filters Take on Diverse Conditions

Industrial air filters from Universal Air Filter® get tough when necessary. For indoor and outdoor applications requiring a more rugged design, the filters can be used in small or large applications calling for a wide array of media options for increased airflow and dust holding.

“The industrial filters help customers who are looking for a filter that can survive being exposed to a harsh environment and handled more frequently for cleaning,” said Mike Miano, UAF engineering and sales manager.

The designer can specify either reusable or disposable media, and the media and support structure can be configured to meet the application requirements for low pressure drop and high dust loading. The media can be a flat panel for lower-profile installations or roll-pleated for increased surface area to reduce pressure drop and increase airflow, dust holding or mist elimination in outdoor applications.

Ranging from medical to industrial processing equipment, the filters can be applied to any market. Applications vary from outdoor cabinets and wireless base stations in the communications market, to larger medical equipment such as radiology devices or inspection and analysis devices such as mass spectrometers used in life science applications. They also work in AC units in off-road equipment cabs and public transportation, enclosures used in roadside signs and video displays, and industrial equipment such as compressors and manufacturing equipment.

A design engineer looking to evaluate these filters or any other UAF product can access UAF’s complimentary, round-the-clock prototype service available worldwide via The prototype service provides design engineers with assistance in meeting critical design, testing and evaluation deadlines for air filter media. To receive a prototype, the engineer can submit a request on the Internet or via telephone, fax or e-mail. Once the prototype is submitted, it is produced and shipped within five working days.
