The DustPlus air filter, Model DP2, is uniquely designed to electrostatically remove airborne particulate matter, plus adsorb odors and fumes. The DustPlus air filter is enclosed in a 2″ thick galvanized steel frame that opens and closes for back panel replacement. This air filter contains a permanent washable electrostatic front panel.
Acting as a prefilter, this air filter panel uses a combination of impingement and electrostatic charge to attract and hold airborne particles like dust. The permanently affixed rear wire panel creates a holding chamber for a high density odor and fume removal filter like activated carbon or carbon with alumina for light gases.
Rugged framing provides stability when utilizing either disposable 1″ filters or media pads. Built to withstand rigorous industrial conditions, including heavy dirt loads and vibration from high velocity air flow, DustPlus can be used as a prefilter to extend the service life of any type of costly replacement filter or to stabilize a less durable disposable air filters. The front electrostatic filter captures larger particles, allowing the odor removing media to work without interference by face loading of large airborne particles.
Replaceable fill options include a high density 60% minimum activity granular carbon only pack or carbon and alumina with potassium permanganate for light gases. Both options are encased in flexible nylon mesh scrim.
DustPlus electrostatic filters should be periodically rinsed or vacuumed free of accumulated particles. Water and a mild detergent may be used on the permanently attached front polypropylene panel; the activated carbon media/disposable filter inside the DustPlus should be removed from the frame and replaced.
Depending on the environment, odor removing media like activated carbon can last up to six months. Once the media reaches maximum adsorption, it is simply removed and replaced. The HVAC system’s recirculating fan should be kept running to ensure maximum air contact with air filters and adsorption media.
Permatron air filter frames also available in stainless steel.
