Commercial Industrial Washable Air Filters

 Facility managers and HVAC contractors are challenged by increased “green” building trends and energy conservation incentives. A simple way to help achieve good indoor air quality and equipment protection air filtration, as well as green initiatives, is by using permanent washable air filters. When choosing between air filter types, you should be aware that a washable electrostatic filter offers you the least cost over useful life and an environmentally friendly air filtration solution.

Permatron Air Filters Have A Proven History

Since 1957, Permatron has been designing and manufacturing washable electrostatic air filters for industrial and commercial use. From the paper mills on the west coast to textile mills on the east coast, Permatron Model IN with our exclusive Accumulator Chamber® construction is the original industrial workhorse of permanent, washable electrostatic air filtration. Of all air filter types, it is arguably the best and the oldest washable commercial industrial option available today.

Electrostatic Air Filters for Commercial Systems

Permatron commercial air filters come in a wide range of standard sizes – or can be quickly custom built to suit any HVAC requirement. Designed for commercial air filtration applications where low resistance and cleanability is critical, Permatron’s commercial grade Model IN electrostatic air filter outperforms and outlasts metal mesh panel filters in many applications. Our Model HFA electrostatic air filter is available for applications like hospitals, nursing homes, data centers and laboratories that require a high arrestance efficiency and cleanability.

The benefits of cleanability and long-term durability in high air velocity systems or caustic environments means Permatron commercial air filters offer the most cost effective, energy efficient and environmentally friendly solution for your panel air filtration needs.

Permatron commercial and industrial air filters assure you of the highest standards of quality and performance. Our air filters are built to last using filter media that is of the highest quality for superior performance and durability.

High Velocity Air Filters

Permatron manufactures air filters for high velocity airflow, heavy dirt loads and rigorous maintenance programs in paper mills or food processing plants. Our three panel Accumulator Chamber construction sets us apart from the competition because it won’t faceload and block air flow. Paper filters degrade quickly – especially in environments with moisture or temperature changes. Permanent, washable air filters stand up to environmental elements and can be used in place of disposables as a roughing filter in outside air intakes, filter banks and inlets. Polypropylene media is a woven media manufactured as a mono (single strand) filament, and does not have a porous surface. This means it will not absorb or retain moisture, and does not encourage the growth of mold, bacteria, viruses, yeast or fungi. Stainless steel frames are available for use in caustic, corrosive environments or applications with rigid cleaning processes.

Our washable air filters are constructed from your choice of air filter material including electrostatic polypropylene, foam, nonwoven polyester or metal mesh.

  • I have 2 customer problems that I solved with your products. These are both hospitals. One had a problem with air filters being damaged by moisture being pulled into them by powerful air handlers. The filters were failing prematurely. I sold them your Model IN filters 3 months ago for one of their air handlers. They just ordered more filters for a second air handler. They have seven more air handlers that could use the same filters, so hopefully there will be many more orders for these filters.  The other hospital had a problem with leaves, insects and debris getting into their air intake louvers.  I sold them the PreVent air intake screen, custom sized, to protect their louvers.
