New air filter technology with HEPA-like performance

Tri-Mer Corp. a technology company specializing in air pollution control systems, has introduced Tri-Flow, a new filtration concept that delivers HEPA-like performance with a MERV 16 rating.

Tri-Flow Compact filters are a higher-performing alternative to bag, cartridge and pocket filters, which are typically rated MERV 10-13.
They have a small footprint, and an exceptionally large filter surface area: Tri-Flow Compact filters provide 2-3 times more filtration compared to similarly dimensioned bag (pocket) filters. 
An even greater increase in filtration area vs. volume is achieved in comparisons with sleeve-type high efficiency filters.
Minimizing the size of a filter lowers manufacturing costs, and gives the OEM or end user valuable flexibility on where to locate the filter.
The unique Tri-Flow design provides in-line pulse jet cleaning and maintains an exceptionally low operating pressure drop. Filter efficiencies of 99.999% on 0.5 micron and larger particles (by weight) are typical.
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 3-5 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.
