High Efficiency Filters

High efficiency pleated media eliminates airborne particles

HVAC systems and commercial/industrial enclosures are exposed to a variety of airborne particles including dust, mold, and pollen.  Removing these particles with a high efficiency filter can extend equipment operating life and enhance air quality.  Custom high efficiency MERV 11, MERV 13, and MERV 15 pleated filter products from UAF offer high dust loading for maximum service life while reducing airflow resistance.  The 100% synthetic media is highly effective at removing 0.3 – 1.0 micron particles from the air stream and is adhesively bonded to all four sides of the filter frame to eliminate air bypass.  A rigid aluminum frame and robust media are extremely durable and are designed to withstand damage from shipping, handling, and installation.

Custom high efficiency pleated filters are designed to remove dust and other particles for fan cooled indoor and outdoor industrial / electronic enclosures.  This product is also well suited to enhance indoor air quality by removing airborne irritants for HVAC and air handling applications.

Standard filter assemblies are available in an overall thickness of 0.88” and 1.88”.  The frame is roll formed into a strong sturdy one-piece channel, using 0.025″ thick, 3000 series aluminum. The frame is tightly fitted to filter media and fastened with an aluminum rivet.   Model number and air flow direction are roll imprinted into the frame.  Part number is metal stamped into frame for quick, accurate identification.

Frame thicknesses outside 0.88” and 1.88” are also available in a 0.040” thick 3000 series aluminum.

100% synthetic media provides low resistance to airflow and is available in pleated format for MERV 11, MERV 13, and MERV 15 dust efficiency ratings.  The media is resistant to moisture and microbial growth, and is designed to resist damage from shipping, handling, and installation.

Custom high efficiency filter assemblies are available in standard thicknesses of 0.88” and 1.88” as well as custom made to meet specification requirements for other thicknesses.

High efficiency media is available in MERV 11, MERV 13, and MERV 15 efficiency ratings

Framed Filters +/- 0.06″ length & width, +/- 0.03″ thickness.
