ST. LOUIS – Universal Air Filter (www.uaf.com) offers a range of specialty metal
finishes designed to increase its air filters’ performance in harsh,
challenging environments. These chrome-free, RoHS Compliant finishes
are applied to the filter’s metallic components – frames, Uni-grid
support, brackets and honeycomb – and provide benefits for a wide range
military/defense applications require a protective finish against
corrosion for MIL-C-5541 Class 1A and/or Class 3 compliance. Clear and
yellow chemical conversion coatings are important for EMI shielding,
creating and maintaining electrical continuity as a path for grounding.
These coatings can prevent corrosion from becoming an insulator and
potentially negating the effectiveness of the EMI shield.
design is an important aesthetic consideration for commercial equipment
manufacturers in many fields, such as telecom, computer networking and
medical. With anodize available in a range of colors, including black,
red, blue and epoxy powder coating available to match most enclosure
finishes, the filter becomes a decorative bezel so designers can bring
the filter outside the enclosure as a key component of their industrial
designs. This freedom of design has the added benefit of providing easy
access to the air filter for maintenance.
Universal Air Filter offers a free prototype service to design engineers worldwide at www.uaf.com. An Internet-submitted prototype request, quick phone call, fax or
e-mail is all it takes to get the process started. The free prototype
is then produced and shipped within five working days.
