SAUGET, IL – Universal Air Filter recently announced it will begin producing its 80 PPI Quadrafoam media with a UL 94 HF-1 rating, making them the only commercial air filter producer in this high porosity media class to meet the preferred self-extinguishing flame safety standards.
In order to meet the self-extinguishing flame requirement, UAF designed the media with a higher porosity to improve mist elimination, salt fog and water ingress in outdoor and other harsh environment applications. The 80 PPI media is designed for high dust arrestance applications because current high efficiency filters are typically too bulky for shrinking electrical enclosures and do
not meet the self-extinguishing flame safety standards.
The 80 PPI Quadrafoam media is available for use in power generation, military, medical, computer networking and telecommunications industries and applications.
As with every air filter, UAF offers its complimentary, round-the-clock prototype service to design engineers worldwide at its Web site, www.uaf.com. This service provides design engineers with assistance in meeting critical design, testing and evaluation deadlines. To receive a prototype, the client can submit a request on the Internet or via telephone, fax or e-mail. Once the prototype is submitted, it is produced and shipped within five working days.
Universal Air Filter’s 80 PPI Quadrafoam media meets the following standards and classifications: UL 94 HF-1; ATCA; UL 900 Class 2; CE Telcordia NEBS GR-78-CORE and GR-63-CORE; micro TCA; ETSI; and are RoHS Compliant.
