The Econocell filter is a high-performance dry type, designed for use in semi-critical locations such as computer installations and prestige office buildings.
The special ‘Hospital’ version of the Econocell filter, which has been designed to give the higher performance demanded for hospital situations. Both versions are highly effective in removing cigarette smoke from the atmosphere, along with the other benefits that come with high efficiency filtration.
The Econocell filter construction is similar to that of Absolute type filters except that a much lower resistance paper is used. Initial pressure drops are therefore lower. A glass-paper filtering medium is used which is pleated into a narrow Vee formation and held in place by corrugated aluminium separators. The filter assembly is enclosed in a metal frame. Econocell filters are suitable for use with conventional mounting frames or can be supplied with extended flanges for down-flow applications. In the latter case, Blu-gel fluid seal is recommended to overcome the need for gaskets or mounting clamps.
The final pleated filter is extremely durable with high compressive strength in the airflow direction. This durability also ensures that there is no damage to the pleats during transportation and storage.
When tested to AS1324.2 the filter shall achieve a No 1 dust efficiency of 60% (F6), 80% (F7) or 90% (F8). A NATA test certificate will need to be provided which will be less than three years old to conform to this specification.
