How It Works

Stage 1 Standard:

A common 4 inch thick pleated filter is used to economically capture the larger particles in the air while keeping the cost of the filter to a minimum. This filter should be changed most often and extends the life of the main bag filters. .

Stage 2 Standard:

The air is filtered through 30 inch long, 8 pocket, 95% ASHRAE micro-glass bag filter (80 ft2) particulate filtration process. These filters are able to separate sub-micron particles from the air passing through the unit. The clean air is then exhausted back into the building.

Optional Stage 3:

HE Model — For fine dust application that need very fine filtration, a 99.9% HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arresting) filter option is available for the VMC. When this option is requested, an 18” x 24” x 12” deep, HEPA filter is combined in the cabinet following an 18” long, 8 pocket, 95% bag filter which prolongs the life of the HEPA filter.

CC Model — For chemical fumes application, a pellet-filled filter bank module is available. There are two 18 lb modules installed for a total of 36 lbs of activated charcoal granules in addition to an 18 inch long, 8 pocket, 95% bag filter. This activated granular charcoal filter which starts the process of adsorption of gaseous air contaminants by bonding to the molecular structure of the carbon surface. Adsorption is the adhesion of airborn particles solid to a surface and is the best method for reducing VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and odors in the air.
