Custom air filters offer the flexibility of matching filter materials to the tasks at hand. They’re also necessary when filter models are discontinued, or an unusual size or shape is needed for a particular task.
Here’s an example of when custom filters come in handy. A glass manufacturer came to us once with a very special need. He needed a custom filter built to fit an electrical cabinet in his glass cutting room to protect the electronics inside the cabinet from airborne particles. The cabinet provided power to the cutting tools used to cut the glass, but dirt kept getting into the electronic components inside the cabinet. In this case, a custom filter, made to fit the cabinet but also to screen out common dirt and dust particles found in his factory, protected valuable electronic components from contamination and malfunctions.
Creating a custom filter is more art than science. Prototypes may be needed to ensure the perfect fit and filtration. Custom filters can be created for HVAC systems, electronics and other applications.
