Pleated air filters come in many varieties, including heavy commercial and industrial versions. The filters offered in this category are built extra tough for commercial and industrial applications such as commercial Heating, Ventilation and Cooling (HVAC) systems, paint booths, oil mist collectors and industrial ventilation system for fumes and particulates.
The Five Star Filter brand of pleated air filters are inline heavy duty filters commonly found in commercial and industrial settings. They are made with woven stainless steel fabric and metal frames. There are several models in which the filter fabric is combined with different types of frames and sealants. There is a standard duty version and several tougher versions that add more or different materials to adjust for more demanding environments.
The Purolator brand is favored by discerning home owners, commercial and industrial customers, and are available in several versions, including:
- The HiE40 model, which covers a vast majority of applications
- The DMK80, which has more pleats in it and more filter media
Both the HiE40 and DMK80 are rated as Minimum Efficiency Rating Value (MERV) 8 filters. For high temperature applications we offer the Purolator HiE40H, which can be used in any application requiring filters that can withstand 450 degree Fahrenheit. This filter is commonly used in gun storage rooms on military bases and private storage facilities. Additionally, the HiE40CB is a carbon pleated filter used for reducing or eliminating odor issues.
Purolator air filters also have models that can filter to MERV 11 and MERV 13 efficiencies. The PAF11 model is a MERV 11 pleated air filter. The PuroGreen13 is the MERV 13 rated filter. Both are made with the same robust frame and metal supported filter media as the HiE40 model.
Ducted air filters are known as 5-inch thick filters and they usually go in the attic of a residence and are commonly used in commercial and industrial settings where there are air conditioned rooms in a warehouse.
