High-efficiency ePTFE filter

September 25, 2009

AAF International, manufacturer of American Air Filter and AAF products, is proud to announce the MEGAcel™ I filter with Helior™ media.

Helior media used in the MEGAcel I Filter is a proprietary, high-efficiency ePTFE media offering a lower initial pressure drop than conventional micro-fiberglass media. With a significantly lower operating resistance, energy consumption is less as a result of the decrease in required fan motor horsepower. This substantial energy reduction creates subsequent cost savings for the customer. The MEGAcel I filter is engineered for energy-efficient operation in a variety of applications, including healthcare, pharmaceutical, electronic, food processing and laboratory environments.

MEGAcel I filters are constructed using tapered aluminum separators to optimize pleat pack resistance. MEGAcel I with Helior media is highly resistant to corrosive environments, therefore reducing the risk of change-outs due to filter media degradation. Helior media is extremely durable with a tensile strength 8 times that of standard micro-fiberglass media. This provides a lower susceptibility to damage thereby reducing repairs in production and installation - resulting in higher yields. Helior HEPA/ULPA media was developed by AAF and is manufactured and tested in an ISO Class 7 environment, eliminating any potential for contamination.
