HemiPleat® eXtreme Dust Collector Filters

HemiPleat eXtreme Media

In addition to the standard PolyTech™ filter media, HemiPleat® is also avaliable with eXtreme nano fiber media. Nano technology allows base material to have larger pore sizes, thus reducing the pressure drop and allowing the nano fibers to provide a superior efficiency layer.

HemiPleat eXtreme media improves filtration efficiencies, is more durable, and can withstand rigorous pulse-cleaning. These advantages extend filter life and lower operation costs, saving you money.

Key Benefits of HemiPleat eXtreme

  • MERV 15 efficiency rating – higher than base paper rating of MERV 10 and competitors’ MERV 13 Nano Web product.
  • Delivers long-term low-pressure drop on difficult applications like laser and plasma cutting, welding, thermal spray, etc.
  • HemiPleat eXtreme coating is thick, durable and can be seen. Competitive Nano coatings are so thin they can’t even be seen - is it even there?

What is the efficiency rating?

The photos below show eXtreme fine fiber layer (image A) applied to the surface of base cellulose fibers (B) to increase efficiency from a MERV 10 up to a MERV 15, which is higher than most other nano fiber filters on the market at MERV 13.

MERV is an ASHRAE standard efficiency scale going from 1 to 16, 16 being the highest. Camfil APC also offers our High Efficiency (HE) media which has a MERV 16 rating for maximum initial efficiency. Tested efficiencies of 99.999% on 0.5 micron and larger particles by weight have been proven. Mass emissions are below 0.001 gr/dscf on most applications.

Why is HemiPleat eXtreme better?

  • Lower pressure drop through open pleat spacing improves cleaning efficiency, which will reduce energy costs through less compressed air consumption during cleaning in many applications.
  • More media is available for filtration, resulting in improved performance and longer life.
  • The separation beads, not the media pleats, contact the inner cage, protecting the media from frictional damage.
  • Camfil APC guarantees performance in writing—ask about the HemiPleat Guarantee.

In addition to Gold Cone® cartridges for the Farr Gold Series®, HemiPleat eXtreme media is available as retrofit upgrade filters for all cartridge dust collectors. Request and download data sheets to see details of eXtreme media types available.
