DustPlus® Particulate and Odor/Fume Air Filter

Dual action air cleaning ability is available in one electrostatic air filter  Particulate plus odor/fume removal is offered with our DustPlus (Model DP).  The DustPlus air filter contains a woven synthetic front panel, which carries a permanent electrostatic charge to attract and hold airborne particulates. The interchangeable back panel (afterfilter) consists of activated carbon media, which adsorbs noxious odors/fumes. The disposable activated carbon afterfilter (Model CH150) is available in a 4-pack.  Depending on odor and fume levels, this panel should be changed every 3-4 months in the average household.

The DustPlus air filter (permanent prefilter) carries a lifetime warranty.

DustPlus Activated Carbon Air Filter Features A Proven Air Filter Design

Permatron’s washable air filters featuring our exclusive Accumulator Chamber design are the most the most effective washable electrostatic air filters manufactured in the U.S.A. for residential use. This air filter design has been used successfully in residential furnaces for over 30 years, but the air filter design was originally designed for commercial applications over 50 years ago. Whether for standard furnace sizes, or custom built to meet a specific requirement, the DustPlus air filter is extremely effective electrostatic air filter for use in home.

Accumulator Chamber Design

 

How the Accumulator Chamber® Works

Utilizing two electrostatically charged fabric panels separated by our unique Accumulator Chamber produces a very effective three-stage air filtration process for residential applications. The first air filter media panel (the prefilter) attracts and holds airborne particulates. The filter fabric’s inherent electrostatic charge enhances filtration by drawing particulates onto fiber surfaces like a magnet. Static electricity does not discharge over time because the air flow helps it maintain the charge – nor does it require insulation or grounding. When particulates build up on the DustPlus’s prefilter, airflow forces them to break off and collect in the Accumulator Chamber, where turbulence and electrostatic forces cause agglomeration into even larger particulates. These agglomerated particulates are too large to pass through the second panel (the afterfilter).

DustPlus’s activated carbon afterfilter attracts and holds the smaller particulates that may have escaped the prefilter, or particles that do not respond to an electrostatic charge.

  • The filters we purchased are a great addition to our plant operations.  I am looking at other applications for their use…

  • 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.

  • The guys love them!  Clean look, and easy to clean….

  • 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.

    Mike FennellMTL Technologies, Purchasing & Process Improvement
  • 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.
