Camfil Farr APCReplacement Filter
The HemiPleat NoOval replacement filter offers high filtration efficiency, excellent energy performance, and long life. Designed with an innovative “oval to round” configuration that allows a perfect fit into down flow-style dust collectors that use oval filters, the patent-pending filter carries a no-risk performance guarantee from the manufacturer. It is ideal for improving overall performance or solving problems such as short filter life with existing dust collectors. The filter features an exclusive Nano fiber media that is strong enough to handle the most difficult dust challenges. Its open-pleat design allows greater media utilization for more effective cleaning and lower pressure drop, resulting in extended filter life and energy savings. The Nano media comes in moisture-resistant (standard) or fire retardant versions, both with 99.99 percent efficiency on 0.5 micron particles or larger (MERV 14/15). Customers may also request regular (non-Nano) HemiPleat cellulose-blend media in high-efficiency, ultra high efficiency, flame retardant, or carbon-impregnated versions.
