Pocket filters achieve highest Eurovent label

AAF, air fliter, air filtration

AAF’s DriPak range of pocket filters surpass the minimum efficiency requirements of the new EN 779:2012 standard and has been independently tested and certified by Eurovent. These filters use only a limited amount of energy, as evidenced by the dark-green A-labels, resulting in a significantly lower total cost of ownership. They are available as DriPak SX, DriPak GX and DriPak NX, each offering distinct variations in terms of filter media, pressure drop and mode of operation.

Specially designed, double-tapered pockets have an optimised geometry to ensure the even distribution of air and dust across the entire filter surface, increasing dust-holding capacity and lengthening filter life. Pressure drop across these filters is also very low.

Top of the range is DriPak NX (pictured) for use as pre- or final filtration in general AHUs or as pre-filtration for critical cleanroom applications such as those in the pharmaceutical industry. Its high dust-holding capacity enables it to be used as a single-stage filter. NX is available in filter classes F7 and F9 with pressure drops of 65 and 120 Pa, respectively. It has a 35% better performance than Eurovent’s A-label.

GX is available in filter classes M5, M6, F7 and F9, of which the last three have a Eurovent A-label.

SX comes in filter classes M5, M6 and F7.
