Air Intake Screen extends the life of pleated filters



The problem - shortened filter life


At a casino in Oklahoma, HVAC units house disposable MERV 8 pleated air filters. 

These HVAC units are designed to bring in up to 100% outside air to dilute cigarette smoke odours inside a busy casino. 

However, due to seed, highway road dust, and other dust generated from nearby farming operations, the pleated filters had a very short service life. 

Tom Ketter, from Red Bud Filter Sales& Service, recommended installing PreVent® air intake filter screens over the fresh air intake on the HVAC units.

The solution - Air Intake Filter Screens


PreVent® air intake filters are designed to prevent the damage and extensive maintenance that large volumes of airborne debris can cause.

Custom designed and manufactured to fit any sized air intake, PreVent® Model R air intake filters are constructed of three-dimensional electrostatic media and encased in a rigid steel frame with magnetic stripping.

The media is designed for strength and durability and its inherent electrostatic charge helps capture and hold small particles.

Using the magnetic stripping allows filters to be attached easily and securely to the underside of the inlet cowl with the patented framework.

Installation of the air intake filters has extended the service life of the disposable MERV 8 pleated air filters from 2-4 weeks to 8-12 weeks!

To ensure proper filtration, the air intake filters are either brushed or hosed off on a 1-2 week basis.

The future
