Increased focus on the indoor air quality (IAQ) and its effect on human health and well-being has led to stricter regulatory requirements concerning air filtration. Beyond health concerns, air filters and filtration media also figure significantly into the amount of energy consumed in operating an HVAC system. Filter media with a lower resistance to airflow reduces the burden on the system’s motor, enabling it to operate effectively, while reducing energy consumption.
A critical challenge in developing effective media for air filtration is the microscopic size of the types of particulate that must be contained. Synthetic nonwoven materials possess advantageous characteristics that enable them to provide a higher degree of filtration. Nonwoven filter technology offers both a performance and cost advantage over traditional materials for air filters. Synthetic nonwoven materials are better able to trap particulate matter while also providing the benefit of lower airflow resistance.
