Product Information

Purolator offers the AERO-CELL S rigid box filter, a rigid air filter engineered to provide medium and high-efficiency filtration combined with a prolonged life cycle. Its box filter construction eliminates the need for retainers and special external wire media supports. A high surface area-to-depth ratio provides the maximum amount of effective filter media in areas of minimum in-line duct space. The result: A rigid, stable filter with consistent performance in a variety of operating conditions.

Frame Construction - The AERO-CELL S perimeter frame is constructed of high strength, corrosion resistant galvanized steel. To prevent air bypass, the filter pak is sealed to the frame on all sides.

Media and Backing - Purolator utilizes a dual stage media in each AEROCELL S filter. The first stage is a prefilter which consists of coarse synthetic fibers designed to arrest larger particulate in the airstream and enhance dirt loading ability. The second stage is a layer of micro-fine poly-propylene fibers spun-bonded and fastened to a polypropylene backing which captures the remaining smaller particles. This dual stage media configuration increases the filter’s overall efficiency and dust holding capacity. The media is continuously bonded with solvent-free, water-based glue to expanded, corrosion-resistant, 28-gauge electro-galvanized steel which allows a 95% open face area. It is important to note, as well, that synthetic

Pleat Configuration - To achieve a maximum dust holding capacity while minimizing pressure loss and replacement frequencies, the AERO-CELL S incorporates aerodynamically wedge-shaped pleats into its design. The expanded metal backing and stationary pleat spacers allow consistent pleat configuration.

Applications - Each AERO-CELL S filter provides medium to high-efficiency air filtration capability for a number of distinct applications. These filters are specifically designed for situations requiring strict adherence to filter media specifications, including the pharmaceutical, food processing, health care, paint spray, and commercial property industries. The AERO-CELL S filter will operate to a final resistance of 1.5” w.g. Available in a variety of filtering efficiencies and sizes, the AERO-CELL S filter will satisfy and effectively service most applications.

Interchangable - The AERO-CELL S filter is designed to be completely interchangeable with all makes and types of medium to high-efficiency rigid cell filters. When used with Purolator conversion filter clips, existing side access and built up filter banks are easily converted to support the AERO-CELL S filter. In high dust concentration applications, the life of an AERO-CELL S is extended by the use of a prefilter. The Purolator MARK 80-D® and hi-E 40™ pleated filters have proven effective in such situations.
