HEPA Filter – The Vital Component of Industrial Filtration

Being the vital components of any industrial process, HEPA filters are available in a number of types and variety, suitable as per the nature of industry and application. HEPA filters are one of the types of commercial filters that are heavily used in a number of industries. Commercial HEPA filters are the devices that eliminate the particles like dirt and dust present in the air. Applications that need high quality of air or which are more sensitive to air quality for functioning, air filters are used for them. However, since application needs differ from industry to industry, there are different kinds of filtration techniques available. Carbon, HEPA, ionic, and UV light commercial air filters are widely applied in the commercial, industrial and medical sectors.

Ionic commercial air filters

These are also called air ionizers and based on voltage for charging the air molecules. Usually, they generate negatively charged ions, called anions, which then grab the particles present in the air, in the way as done by static electricity. As soon as the particles are attached to the anions, they get deionized and eliminated from the air stream. These filters are most widely seen in commercial air filtration.

HEPA (High efficiency particulates absorbing)

These commercial filters are stronger and highly effective for the sensitive applications. These filters are able to remove around 99.90 percent of the particles present in air, which makes them quite effective air sanitizers as well.  The filters are mainly consisted of the fiberglass fiber mats, which grab the particles as the air stream passes through these. The effectiveness of HEPA commercial air filters is based on the diameter of the fiber and the thickness of the filter itself. With the passage of time, more kinds of commercial filters are being developed to cater the growing commercial filtration needs.
