Box style HEPA filters, as they are commonly referred to, are used in a number of diverse industries and applications to provide the highest level of air contamination control and prevention of airborne bacteria and viral organisms.
Primary industry applications that require the use of Box style HEPA filters included asbestos abatement, electronics, food processing, hospitals, laboratories, and pharmaceutical processing to name just a few.
HEPA filters are designed to capture submicron particles to meet minimum filtration efficiency (FE) rating of 99.97% down to 0.3 microns size. To understand how small a 0.3 micron size particle is, this chart will provide you some perspective.
- 0.1 to 0.3 micron = Atmospheric dusts, fumes and various allergens
- 0.3 to 1 micron = Tobacco smoke, metallic fumes and bacteria such as staphylococcus
- 1 to 5 micron = Fly ash, coal dust, paint pigments, insecticide dusts
- 5 to 10 micron = Cement dust, mold, pollen, medium dust particles
- > 10 micron = Plant spores, pollens, milled flour
In North America, the Institute of Environmental Sciences & Technology provides standards for HEPA filter testing and filter certification. Each filter is tested and if it passes, a certification label is applied identifying filter part number, airflow rating, pressure drop, FE and other trackable information as illustrated here.
Box filters are manufactured using a variety of wood, metal, plastic frame materials for different application requirements. APC’s engineering group created an efficient RFQ process to determine the correct materials for optimum filter design to meet cost and delivery timeline requirements. We provide our clients with innovative filter solutions.
