How to Maximize the Lifespan of Air Filters

March 19, 2021

An air filter may seem like just a small component in your whole dust collection system. However, filters such as pleated air filters go beyond ensuring the quality of indoor air for your workers. They also optimize the lifespan of your equipment.



In today’s blog, we will be sharing some helpful tips for you to make the best out of your air filters such as pleated air filters:



Install a pre-filter

Pre-filters capture larger particles before they are able to travel further and clog the main filter. Since they help minimize strain on the main filter, pre-filters also help lengthen the life of the main filter.


Position filters correctly

Without the help of filter technicians, sometimes operators can install filters incorrectly. Improper installation of air filters impacts airflow and thus defeats the purpose of the air filter. Always follow the indicated arrow symbols in each air filter and install accordingly, or call on filter technicians to help you out.


Minimize air resistance

The use of a low resistance filter improves dust loading capacity, which, in turn, extends the life of the filter.  The low resistance material also increases the speed of air through the filter–reducing energy usage.



Select the right air filter

Choosing the right air filter is the most critical step to ensure quality filter performance. Compared to non-pleated air filters, pleated air filters capture particulates better and aid in maintaining equipment components. When applicable, they have to be replaced regularly to be as efficient as possible. Furthermore, you can opt for custom pleated air filters to ensure cost-efficiency, thus improving your bottom line.
