American Air Filter Co., Inc. d/b/a AAF International, manufacturer of AmericanAirFilter® and AAF® products, is proud to introduce the innovative MEGApleat™ M8 premium pleated filter. When compared to the leading MERV 8 pleated filter in the market today, the MEGApleat M8 filter reduces energy costs by up to 20%, lasts 30% longer, and is 40% stronger. The MEGApleat M8 filter’s patent-pending design is the ideal choice for sustainable building design and operation, standing up to the most challenging environments and applications.
MEGApleat M8 filters promote maximum dust holding capacity (DHC) and can last up to 6 months or longer in most operating environments. This reduces the need to change filters every 3 to 4 months, saving both labor and material costs and reducing waste. More importantly, the MEGApleat M8 filter pays for itself through the energy savings associated with lower operating resistance throughout the life of the filter. The MEGApleat M8 filter is rated MERV 8.
The patent-pending design of the MEGApleat M8 filter includes a heavy-duty, galvanized expanded metal support grid combined with high-strength wet beverage board. The optimized pattern of the grid minimizes blockage to airflow. The metal cross-sectional area is 40% larger than other wire-backed designs. The strength of the grid combined with the proprietary moisture-resistant glue formulation helps prevent blowouts and failures under the toughest environments, including high-moisture applications.
The MEGApleat M8 filter’s uniform media with controlled fiber size and blend minimizes performance variations, providing dependable and consistent operation over time. MEGApleat M8 filter has been tested by an independent, third-party laboratory, ensuring that no commercial bias is present. This is the only way to verify that your air filter is performing to specification.
Peter Kurto, COO AAF International, expressed his excitement regarding the product introduction, “The MEGApleat M8 filter is a direct result of listening to our customers and their desire for a product with improved performance that reduces energy consumption, lasts longer, and is stronger. Our dedication to new product development demonstrates our commitment to enhancing value through innovation as we reinvigorate our roots as the global leader in air filtration.”
