eFRM Media (Expanded FluoroResin Membrane) is the next generation HEPA filtration technology, designed specifically for applications where oil-based test aerosols (i.e. PAO) are utilized or fine particulate (i.e. Hydrocarbons) are present. This patented HEPA filtration media provides superior mechanical performance at significantly lower energy cost while maintaining the most stringent filtration requirements in these demanding environments.
Filter failure can occur throughout many different aspects, including manufacturing, transport, and installation. Additionally, unintended contact during leak scanning of the filters during testing & certification and/or as a result of facility cleaning can also lead to filter failure. These failure modes can be mitigated with the use of a high mechanical strength durable media, such as eFRM. Use of eFRM impacts sustainability in manufacturing, shipping & handling, testing, and cleaning.
eFRM media has a lower pressure drop, reducing energy consumption. eFRM filters operate at about half the pressure drop of a similar microglass filter, and every Pascal saved equates to approximately $1 in energy savings ($100 per every 0.4" of static). This reduction, ~ 50%, in resistance results in approximately the same reduction in energy consumption.
MEGAcel® II eFRM HEPA filters employ the industry’s first PAO-compatible membrane media. It outperforms to comparable traditional microglass alternatives, providing superior strength and durability at approximately ½ the resistance. This durable media is proven to deliver superior performance, outclassing its competition in the most stringent of applications.
