UAF Offers Lower-Cost Reusable Air Filter Frames
June 26, 2008
SAUGET, Ill. - At a time when prices for essential goods only seem to increase, Universal Air Filter has developed a reusable clamshell or thin envelope air filter frame that allows customers to replace only the air filter media, resulting in lower maintenance costs.
The two air filter frame designs are manufactured to fit in tight spaces less than 6.35 mm or 0.25 inches thick and can be removed for service while continuing to reduce the risk of disturbing dust loaded on the filter. The frames also open for easy access to the media for simple cleaning and substitution, and the media is designed to meet NEBS standards, which require a UL Classified framed filter assembly within telecom and/or datacom chassis.
"Reusable air filter frames offer clients the option of lowering their long-term operating and maintenance costs associated with replacing entire filter assemblies," said Mike Miano, engineering and sales manager at UAF. "These frames also are designed to align with existing chassis or enclosure structures, thus enhancing thermal management and increasing the effective air flow area for maximum cooling."
A design engineer looking to evaluate reusable frame air filter systems can access UAF's complimentary, round-the-clock prototype service available worldwide via www.uaf.com. The prototype service provides design engineers with assistance in meeting critical design, testing and evaluation deadlines for air filter media used in power generation, military, medical, computer networking and telecom applications. To receive a prototype, the engineer can submit a request on the Internet or via telephone, fax or e-mail. Once the prototype is submitted, it is produced and shipped within five working days.
Universal Air Filter's reusable frames with replaceable media meet the following standards and classifications: UL 94 HF-1; ATCA; UL 900 Class 2; CE; Telcordia; NEBS GR-78-CORE and GR-63-CORE; micro TCA; ETSI; and are RoHS Compliant.
