AAF’s ePTFE ULPA filtration technology provides initial resistances at a minimum of 30% lower than conventional micro fiberglass media, resulting in unmatched reductions in fan energy consumption. AAF’s pleating method, which uses intermittent polyamide separators, allows more open and effective media area, minimizing pleat pack resistance.
Perfect Filter Media
Compared with micro fiberglass media, ePTFE media provides superior benefits, including inert chemical properties, more uniform fiber distribution, smaller fiber diameters, and smaller pore size. As a result, reduced resistance and higher filtration performance provide substantial energy savings.
Tooling environments often produce harmful and corrosive by-products. The MEGAcel II ePTFE filter is extremely resistant to these harsh conditions, and also offers superior efficiency and pressure drop characteristics. Manufactured with a proprietary, high-quality ePTFE media, the MEGAcel® II ePTFE filter is hydrophobic and meets the requirements of UL900. The media pack is permanently attached to an anodized extruded aluminum frame using a urethane adhesive.
Note: MEGAcel I filters are to be tested in-situ by
Discrete Particle Counter (DPC) method only.
Chemical Advantages of AAF Flanders ePTFE Media
AAF’s ePTFE media is naturally boron-free and the materials of construction have been chosen to meet the most stringent of off-gassing requirements. The off-gassing impurities are significantly reduced compared to micro fiberglass.
High Corrosion Resistance
ePTFE media is chemically inert and resistant to highly corrosive agents, including alkaline, acid, and organic substances- all of which can be found in semiconductor manufacturing processes.
Superior Water Resistance
AAF’s ePTFE media is hydrophobic and provides superior water resistance in comparison with micro fiberglass and low boron micro fiberglass media.
