Air Filter Media | Types and Applications

air filter media - different types of air filter media

Filter media is the material used in air filters which captures many different types of particulate matter. Permatron manufactures air filters with a diverse range of synthetic electrostatic media, both woven and nonwoven, in standard and custom air filter designs.

Electrostatic air filtration includes a combination of impingement and charged particle attraction. 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 media 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 Media For Any Application

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 densities, layers and types of 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.

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.
