Air Filter Media | Materials, Types and Applications

air filter media - different types of air filter media

Air filter material or 'media' is the filtering component used in air filters. The type of air filter material used depends on the application. Different air filter materials can be selected - each designed to capture many different types of particulate matter. Permatron manufactures air filters with a diverse range of air filter media. Some of the more popular choices include synthetic electrostatic media, both woven and nonwoven, in both our standard and custom air filter designs.

Electrostatic air filters include a combination of impingement and charged particle attraction to remove airborne debris. Many synthetic media filters contain an inherent electrostatic charge that won't wash out or diminish over time.

The electrostatic charge is enhanced by the friction of air flow over the air filter material surfaces. Synthetic filter media, like polyester and foam, can be impregnated with finely ground coatings such as activated carbon, activated aluminum, potassium permanganate and antimicrobial.

Air Filter Material

Permatron have been designing and manufacturing air filters for custom applications for more than 50 years. Custom air filters can be made to suit any application by varying the sizes, densities, layers and types of air filter material or 'media' depending on air flow restrictions, arrestance efficiencies required and budget parameters. Other types of air filter media Permatron offer include aluminum, expanded metal mesh and wire cloth.

Because there are so many options available to our clients, Permatron offers a complete list of air filter material here.

Air Filter Frames

Metal pad stabilizing frames are available in a .02 gauge or heavy duty 24 gauge galvanized steel frame with expanded metal support grid on one side. This can be used in air filtration applications involving media pad change outs. The frame is available with or without 2 criss crossed wire supports to hold the media in place.
