Tri-Flow Compact filters are self-supporting and are manufactured using proprietary filter media tailored to the application. There are seven filter media, including options for oleophobic, high-temperature, and anti-static applications. All media is pleated and continuously bonded for maximum dimensional stability and filtration integrity. A rigid base molding protects the elements; a resilient mounting flange provides a dust seal that prevents bypass.
Tri-Flow elements have a multi-year service life for virtually all industrial applications. Compared with conventional bag or cartridge-type filters, service life is three to five times longer, with zero compromise of filter performance. Filter change-out is fast and “tool-free,” and, notably, is done from outside the collector, from the clean air plenum side. As a result, it is never necessary to enter the dirty air plenum side for servicing, a feature which eliminates concerns about employee exposure to hazardous dusts. Existing dust collectors can often be adapted to accommodate Tri-Flow Compact filters.
