Leak-free air filtration from Camfil Farr

Upgrades GlidePack air filter housings

Camfil Farr has introduced improved GlidePack air filter housings

Camfil Farr has introduced improved GlidePack air filter housings. The company says these housings have set the standard since the 1970s and ensure high indoor air quality for medical and laboratory environments and many commercial buildings.

The GlidePack air filter housings provide leak-free (less than ½ of 1%) filter integrity. They are available in two depths of 13in and 25in and include adapters to accommodate various types and depths of filters. Ribbed tracks allow the filters to glide easily into the housing without binding, simplifying filter service. They are available in configurations from four high to six filters wide (8ft x 12ft).

GlidePack MultiTracks are multiple-stage housings with adaptable tracks for prefilters and final filters (including gas adsorbers). When upgrades are needed, they are configurable in the field.

Exclusive GlidePack features include a polypropylene fin seal filter gasket on each track that ensures filter-to-track air leakage of less than ½ of 1% across the filter; high-memory sponge neoprene door edge gaskets that prevent contaminants from migrating into (or out of) the housing, and poly sponge door gaskets that prevent filter bypass between the housings and filters.

Construction is 16-gauge galvanised steel with out-turned standing flanges that mate with existing HVAC equipment, and simplify installation. Moisture weeping paths on the housings make them weatherproof, for exterior installation without modification.

Two filter service doors allow filters to be serviced from either side of the housing; housing doors are engineered to be square to the housing for a tight filter seal. UV-resistant star-style handles assure a tight seal, and a new filter seal is established each time air filters are changed. Leak-free integrity is maintained throughout the housing’s service life.

Construction options include stainless steel and high pressure (to 8.0in water gauge), as well as double wall with insulation.

GlidePack housings accommodate all HVAC grade filters and prefilter/final filter combinations. They are also compatible with all 5-Star air filters, which have been shown to reduce HVAC-related energy use and waste disposal, and meet other environmental criteria.

Camfil Farr manufactures a family of housings for commercial HVAC systems, HEPA filters, gaseous adsorbers, cleanrooms and high level nuclear or biological containment.
