Grease Baffle Filters: Stainless Steel Baffle Filters

Grease filters are designed to remove grease particles from exhaust air streams.The most common grease filters currently in use are the baffle-type. Permatron’s metal grease baffle filters are available in three models. Our metal grease filters are made of galvanized steel, aluminum or stainless steel.

How Do Metal Grease Filters Work?

Our baffle grease filters are 2″ thick and contain two layers of roll formed baffles which are equally spaced. The spacing built into the filter creates an optimized air flow which helps collect the grease inside the filter. Grease then drains down the baffles and into collecting a trough. Permatron metal grease filters are designed to prevent flames from passing through the filter baffles. They are constructed from different materials to withstand different temperature levels.

Testimonials

  • The order process went very well.  We received the black washable fan bonnets 2 weeks ago and are very happy.  I will order again in the future.   Great product and great service.  Thank You!

  • It’s always a great idea to protect HVAC condenser coils with screening, especially if you can do it right after new equipment installation. Once the magnets where inserted into the screen grommets, it took literally less than a minute to place the screening on the equipment, adjust it, done. This screening will protect the condenser coils from grass cutting, bugs, cottonwood seedlings, etc.

  • Our customer, Logoplaste, uses and raves about the Prevent BHA Screens and MagnaMount Kits.We did an install at their manufacturing facility in June on two units, all four sides required screens. Installation time was drastically reduced from the original 6 hour estimate with standard mount clips, to complete screen installation in under 1 hour with MagnaMount clips.The facility is located along the river where cottonwood trees are very abundant. Even when installing PreVent, it was catching the cottonwood that was flying. I brought him out one of your cleaning brooms a week after install, and the Maintenance Manager said that it is the best money he has spent since he has worked at that facility. He is planning on purchasing some more for his 4 Cooling Towers as well.

  • The PreVent bonnet style filter is the best thing I have ever bought to protect our cooling tower circular fan. We have to clean it every two weeks but it is so easy.

  • Permatron's PreVent screening was installed on recently replaced 363A RTU condenser coils, outside air and economizer openings, using MagnaMount magnets to hold them in place VS drilling and screwing them on. The magnets will most definitely be our primary mounting option going forward. All three screens took us literally less than five minutes to install. I noticed how quickly cottonwood was caught by the screening.The screens can be cleaned in place or easy removed for more detailed cleaning.

  • PreVent is a very nice product, and very reasonably priced.  Belk is looking forward to the opportunity to do more work with Permatron in the future.

  • I had some good feedback from the client who uses our MH3 compact thermoelectric counter top cooler: • The filters are very easy to install. • They should help extend the life of the chillers. • They haven't had to replace any chillers that have the filters installed.

  • I reached out to Permatron about putting branded labels with part numbers on every Thermo King air filter. Some of our customers replaced original equipment air filters with look-alike filters, which had a negative impact on the performance of their equipment. While working on the air filter labels we added a packaging project, requiring a few more labels and packaging material. The project was big, but thanks to an awesome communication flow, the changes were completed fast and implemented seamlessly. Now our customers can easily differentiate between original equipment and non-original equipment air filters.  Because the branded air filters come prepackaged from Permatron, our dock-to-stock time improved by over a week.
