Custom Air Filter Manufacturing

Custom OEM Air Filters are specifically designed and engineered to provide superior fit, function, filtration performance and the longest filter life possible compared to standard off the shelf filters. 

APC custom air filters can be designed to meet airflow ranges from 1 to 5000 SCFM with filter efficiencies ranging from 60 to 99.999995% at 0.3 microns including MERV filter ratings from 11 to 15.

APC Filtration Inc. is an ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturer providing over 35 years experience in critical air filter design, engineering, manufacturing, filter testing and appliance/equipment integrity testing for global OEM’s of industrial, commercial and household equipment. APC Filtration Inc. is an ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturer providing over 34 years experience in custom made, designed and tested air filters for global OEM’s of industrial, commercial and domestic appliances and equipment. Virtually any filter shape can be made including heptagon, decagon, hexagon, pentagon, nonagon and triangle. 

Filter frames and end cap materials range from plastic (ABS, PVC, PS and more), polyurethane (Shore A to D scale), metal (extruded aluminum and galvanized metal), plywood and MDF (both standard and flame retardant). 

As a specialty custom shop, we are flexible and capable to provide quick turnaround on product design, prototyping, testing and production. Annual production capacity depends on the size and complexity of the air filter. APC can supply up to 1,000,000 small filters annually per year or fewer than 100,000 filters for our largest size. 

APC complies with ISO 14/12/9 particle count and ISO 9001:2015 quality manufacturing standards. 
Air filter leak testing, fractional efficiency testing, air filter certification, appliance/equipment integrity testing, dust load testing including private label product manufacturing and contract manufacturing are just a few value added services we provide. 

APC qualifies each custom filter design through in-house performance laboratory testing to meet the following test standards:


  • North America – ASTM, ASHRAE and IEST standards
  • Europe & Asia – BS EN1822-05:2009 standards.
