SAUGET, IL — These days, every product seems to claim they are environmentally friendly. For many years, Universal Air Filter® has been supporting green initiatives by helping to conserve energy and extend product life cycles with its flame-retardant, reusable and low-pressure drop filters.
UAF filters can be designed and configured to maximize surface area to reduce pressure drop and promote increased service life. Low-pressure drop filters allow more airflow to help dissipate heat, resulting in the use of smaller cooling fans. Smaller and/or fewer cooling fans equal less money spent on energy to run the fans for equipment cooling.
UAF’s filters also keep dust from accumulating on circuit cards within equipment cooling applications, allowing the product to operate under decreased heat conditions. This enables the system to run at a higher efficiency and therefore extends the life of the product.
Reusable filter frames allow customers to replace only the air filter media rather than the entire air filter assembly. UAF’s clamshell and thin envelope air filter frames can be cleaned and reused to reduce waste as well as lower maintenance costs. These filter frame designs are manufactured to fit in tight spaces less than 6.35 mm or 0.25 inches thick and can be removed for service while continuing to reduce the risk of disturbing dust loaded on the filter. The frames also open for easy access to the media for simple cleaning and substitution. The media is designed to meet NEBS standards, which require a UL Classified framed filter assembly within telecom and/or datacom chassis.
UAF’s Quadrafoam filters lower insurance cost by helping to reduce the chance of requiring extensive product replacement due to smoke and/or fire damage. The flame-resistant Quadrafoam media, which meets UL 94 HF-1, will self-extinguish to minimize fire propagation and help limit and contain flame spread to adjacent equipment.
