AEROSTAR PLEATED AIR FILTER - SERIES 400

DESCRIPTION

The Aerostar Pleated Air Filer – Series 400 incorporates a 100% synthetic media with an ASHREA 52.1 average atmospheric efficiency of 25% to 30% and an average arrestance exceeding 90% by weight. The 25mm and 50mm filters handle velocities up to 2.54 m/s – the 100mm filters up to 3.18 m/s.

The media is bonded to a metal grid on the air-leaving side, preventing vibration, and maintaining uniformity of the pleats. The filter pack is enclosed in a heavy-duty, moisture resistant, die-cut frame that will not warp, crack or distort under normal operating conditions.

Front and back media retainers are an integral part of the air filter frame. The media pack is bonded to every part of the frame, preventing any possibility of air by-pass. Integral pleat separators on the 100mm filter provides additional pleat stabilization for the most demanding applications.

BENEFITS

It is possible for a flat air filter to face load, thus restricting airflow and placing unnecessary strain on equipment.

The Series 400 air filters accumulate the heavier, more restrictive particles at the bottom of the pleats, leaving the sides open longer for effective filtration. The Series 400 filter media is engineered to provide maximum efficiency. In general, deeper pleats result in longer filter life and more time between changeovers.

FEATURES

  • Achieves MERV 7 (per ASHRAE standard 52.2)
  • Rigid construction with consistent media extends the service life.
  • Longer service life means lower operating costs
  • Moisture resistant 100% synthetic media
  • Well-built, efficient and easy-to-handle medium efficiency filters
  • Low initial pressure drop
  • Consistent efficiency results
  • A wide range of sizes in 25mm, 50mm and 100mm thickness

APPLICATIONS

These air filters can be used without modification in side-access filter housings or front withdrawal holding frames. They offer better efficiency than conventional washable flat or pleated filters. The Series 400 filters, when used as pre-filters, substantially extend the life of more expensive high-efficiency filters. They are the perfect filter for residential, commercial and industrial use.

SERVICE/MAINTENANCE

Service and maintenance can also be carried out by Peregrine Industries' trained service technicians if required (ask our representative about our competitive service/maintenance contracts to all types of HVAC and airconditioning filters).

MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value)

A numerical system for comparing air filters based on minimum particle size efficiency.  A MERV value of 1 is the least efficient to 16 being the most efficient (see ASHRAE 52.2 or our technical section for an explanation on the different filter testing methods)

Series 400 Pleated Air Filters achieve a MERV 7 rating.  This is equivalent to a G4 rating according to the European Eurovent 4/5 EN779 and ASHRAE 52.1
