The lateral internal heavy duty wire support when pleated shall keep the pleat in shape after washing and prevent pleat vibration and collapse, a tendency of self supported panel filters after washing and under high airflow conditions.

The effective filter media area shall be not less than 4,6m2 of media per m2 of filter face area and shall contain not less than 55 pleats per linear m.

Initial pressure drop at 2,5 m/s approach velocity shall not exceed 100 – 120Pa.

The filter media shall have an average ASHRAE efficiency of 50% and an arrestance of 96%.

The media shall be color coded for correct directional placement in filter bank, blue for first stage and white for second stage.


The enclosing frame shall be the PAK FRAME modular type, the components manufactured from corrosion resistant steel with a minimum thickness of 0,5mm.
