Air-Care-Construction

Air-Care Washable Electrostatic Filters​

Types of Frames

These washable permanent electrostatic air filters are available in standard and custom sizes for virtually any configuration of air system and application.

In addition to two types of rigid frames, flexible frames are also available for applications where a rigid frame cannot be used.

The ElectraGold filter comes with a 1″ frame. The ElectraSilver filter is available in depths between 1/2″ and 6″. All ElectraFlex filters are 1/4″ thick and fit most 1″ applications.

Arrestance

The arrestance of a filter reflects its ability to remove small airborne particles. All Air-Care filters come in one of two types of arrestance — either 94% or 88%. The 94% arrestance filter provides higher filtering capacity by trapping up to 94% of particles in the air. The 88% arrestance filters provide slightly less filtering capacity,but is less restrictive, allowing greater airflow through the filter. The 88% arrestance filters may be preferred when used in older or weaker air handling systems since air can move more freely through them. The difference in the amount of particles captures between 94% and 88% arrestence is minimal.

Anti-Microbial

All 94% filters contain an EPA registered anti-microbial material to inhibit the mold and bacteria growth on the filter surface and are resistant to damage casued by UV bulbs.

UV Resistant

Air-Care filters with 94% arrestance are manufactured to be resistent to ultraviolet radiation. This is an important feature If you have germicial UV bulbs in your heating and cooling system or your equipment is exposed to sunlight since UV rays can destroy filtration materials.
