Filtering Application

First filter position

Second filter position

Final filter (HEPA)

Clean water loss air scrubbing. For a relatively clean environment.

(no filter necessary)

2nd Stage Pre-Filter (F271)

HEPA filter (F321)

Standard air scrubbing. For environments with higher particle loads, such as construction environments.

1st Stage Pre-Filter (F270)

2nd Stage Pre-Filter (F271)

HEPA filter (F321)

First pass efficiency air filtration. For use with a negative air setup during remediation of high risk contaminants and/or when DOP testing is required.

2nd Stage Pre-Filter (F271)

DOP Stage 2 Pre-Filter (F415)

HEPA filter (F321)

Odor control and air filtration. For the removal volatile organic compounds (VOCs), food odors, fumes from paint and paint thinners, sewer odors, and many other noxious odors.

Activated Carbon Filter (F397)

2nd Stage Pre-Filter (F271)

HEPA filter (F321)


Filter descriptions

1st Stage Pre-Filter (F270).
Synthetic fiber filter media rated at 10% efficiency. Captures the largest particles to help extend the life of the higher efficiency filters inside.

2nd Stage Pre-Filter (F271). Synthetic fiber filter media rated at 30% efficiency. Captures larger particles to help extend the life of the HEPA filter. 

HEPA filter (F321). The HEPA filter has an efficiency rating of 99.97% against 0.3 micron oily aerosol particles. The HEPA filtration standard was developed in the 1940s to control radioactive dust particles in U.S. nuclear laboratories.

DOP Stage 2 Pre-Filter (F415). Use of the DOP filter ensures laboratory-rated performance for sensitive jobs requiring first-pass HEPA filtration. 

Activated Carbon Filter (F397). The activated carbon filter allows the removal of a wide variety of compounds, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), food odors, fumes from paint and paint thinners, sewer odors, and many other noxious odors. Combining activated carbon filtration with HEPA filtration is especially effective in removing airborne soot particles and the odors they create.
