MVX MERV 11-16

MVX Filter 300

AVAILABLE NOW!! The MVX is a fully potted micro glass fiber filter, with an ABS frame. It is used for gas turbine and other applications. It comes in sizes up to 24″ height, a 17″ depth and widths of 12″, 20″ and 24″ (23.2 x 23.3 x 17.32 actual). In the largest size, the media area is 344 sq. ft with a 2500 cfm air flow and a pressure drop of 0.54 inches w.g. It’s operating temperature is 176º F.

Poly-Rings, Sleeves and Links


The Phoenix Series Poly-Rings, Sleeves and Links utilize layers of 100% non-woven polyester media and offer a variety of styles, multiple filtration media layers and performance levels.

For optimum performance, the air-leaving side is treated with a non-toxic, non-migratory adhesive. Media overlap ensures a positive seal between the filter and the holding frame, eliminating the possibility of air bypass and the need for supplemental gasketing.

PR-10 and PR-20 Poly-Rings are rated MERV 8 and are perfect for paint booths to upgrading a lower efficient filter. Offered in 1/2″: PR-5; 1″: PR-10 and 2″: PR-20 nominal thickness for a broad range of dust loading applications.

Bag Filters / Pocket Filters

EXCEL Bag Filter

Our Quad and Cube polyester medium efficiency bag filters perform well in both variable and constant volume systems. The rigid, self-seal design of these filters helps prevent air bypass and allows the filters to operate under adverse conditions, especially where high humidity is present.

The Quad 440 features a two-stage 100% non-woven polyester media for maximum efficiency and service life. The open fibers on the intake layer catch the larger particles allowing the finer particles to be caught by the dense outflow layer. The Quad 440 achieves MERV 7.

Our Cube Filters feature the same two-stage polyester media found in the Quad 440 and are available in regular, internal supported and unitized construction. All filters incorporate media that is Class 2 under U.L. std. 900.

Purapak Extended Surface Bag Filter and Excel Synthetic Pocket Bags

Purapak Bag Filter

The Purapak extended surface bag filter and EXCEL synthetic pocket bags are constructed with ultra-fine fiberglass media fibers for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications. The stitching is coated with a thin line of hot melt adhesive to secure the thread to the media and seal any perforations in the media caused by sewing.

The pockets are individually adhered to an internal aluminum tube header. Each individual pocket is fastened to the next by means of pocket support ribs, which are mechanically attached to the internal header. The entire assembly is encased in a galvanized steel header frame to prevent racking and possible bypass of unfiltered air.

Both the Excel and Purapak filters are rated to withstand temperatures up to 160º F. Available in MERV 9, 11, 13 & 15.

Z-Line Pleated and Air Cleaner Replacement Filters


The Z-Line Pleated and Air Cleaner Replacement Filters feature fibers which do not absorb moisture and will not support microbial growth. Achieving a MERV 10 rating or above, they include:

  • ZL – Offers excellent performance and value for a wide range of applications
  • HV – Ideal in high-velocity systems where maximum square footage of media is necessary
  • MR-13 – Provides high performance with low pressure drop for energy efficiency

Constructed with an extended-surface pleated-media type and 100% synthetic fibers. Pleats are in a tapered radial configuration. A heavy duty, recycled expanded metal reinforcement is laminated to the air-exit side of the media by a thermo-setting adhesive to maintain continuity of the radial pleats. The galvanized frames resist rust and corrosion. Rated to withstand temperatures up to 180º F.
