Air Filtration

If you want an allergy friendly environment, then air filtration is essential and with 3M™ High Air Flow (HAF) Filters you get a solution with easily replaceable filters. The filters consist of a frameless, self-supporting material that can easily be cut into the measures you want. 3M HAF filters are manufactured in a special material to avoid the frequent growth of, for instance mould.

Air Filtration

The unique electrostatic micro-structure in 3M HAF air filters offers low initial airflow resistance, thus requires less energy than conventional air filters.

The filters are available in a thickness of 5mm to 30mm (in 5mm increments) and are made from 100% synthetic filter media. They resist moisture and common chemicals. Compared with conventional filters, they can be installed easily.

3M HAF filters are especially suited for HVAC applications and pre-filtration, including air conditioning and ventilation systems, sensitive electronic equipment and industrial applications in areas such as automotive, buses and trains.

For hospitality building owners and managers; maintenance time and productivity play an important role in efficient building operations. 3M HAF filters have been shown to help capture airborne dust that can deposit on in-room heating and air conditioning units, while maintaining good airflow through the unit.

For manufacturers of industrial equipment and electronics, airborne dust and dirt can damage various components, resulting in increased maintenance. In addition, maintaining good airflow in these units is of utmost importance. Because of their frameless, self-supporting construction, 3M HAF filters can be easily adapted to many existing equipment configurations, providing a simple way to add value to the equipment design.

For operators of transit systems in congested urban centres, soot and dust can clog HVAC filters and coils, resulting in the need for frequent service intervals and filter replacement. Due to the unique combination of low pressure drop and good dust loading, 3M HAF filters may be an excellent filter for these applications, particularly compared to conventional foams, plastic netting or metal screens.

In these and other applications, filtered air can be an important competitive advantage that does not require major capital investment.
