Q:
Please share with us any “non-standard” applications that industrial air filters have been used for.
8 answers
Answers:
Most filters available cover a very wide scope of applications. There are all types of filters available for all industries. The design concept should be more than just achieving Clean Air. It should also eliminate the number of filters used--decrease replacement --decrease the size of Blowers used -- thus lowering the electrical cost of operation and for new construction or retrofit-decrease the cost of initial construction.
