Add a Filter to a Filterless Blower

There are many times when blowers, attached to various types of equipment or individually mounted, originally did not need a filter. But the situation has changed and now it would be desirable to have filtered air!

Electra-Kool™ Filter Kits solve the problem - simply and economically! The kit includes the filter of choice complete with a mounting bracket and fasteners for the bracket. All Electra-Kool™ filters are mounted with one wingnut which makes removal and changing easy!

Blower Types: Blowers are usually cast aluminum, fiberglass or sheet metal. They may have a simple inlet opening or one with "lips" (see sketch). FilterKits™ may also be adapted to a "remote mount" away from the blower with the use of duct and a separate flange mounting for the filter which could be mounted on a vertical or horizontal surface (wall, floor, etc.).

Filter Construction: All Electra-Kool™ filter elements are designed to make removal/installation easy and quick! One wingnut in the center of the filter top does the job! All filters have metal endcaps and an expanded metal media protective cover. All have a gasketed seal to the blower face, allowing no bypass of dirt particales.

Filter Types: Metal Mesh filters are most used where fine filtration is not required but protection from larger particales is needed. Typical use is on ventilation blowers on large DC power motors. Pleated Paper filters offer filtration equivalent to automotive intake filters and will remove dust particles that cannot be seen by the human eye! These are standard on the filter/ventilator systems for enclosures. Lastly, HEPA types, which offer extremely fine filtration, are used for special needs.

Prefilters: Prefilters are a non-woven mat about 1/2 inch thick. They wrap around the outside of the main filter fastened by velcro strips, and extend the life of the main filter. They are furnished with the filter/ventilator systems with pleated paper main filters but not with metal mesh filterkits. They can be used as a coalescer to help prevent oil mist from entering metal mesh filters. A "doublewrap" size is more effective than a standard single wrap.

Filter Cleaning: Prefilters, pleated paper and metal mesh main filters may be cleaned for re-use by washing gently in a detergent solution, rinsing with water and air drying. Compressed air is not recommended.

Optional Items: If remote mounting is desired, we can furnish duct hose with clamps, flange base for mounting the filter away from the blower, wall, floor or adjustable height brackets. Weatherhoods can be custom made for the application.

Selecting and Sizing: Use the chart below to determine the FilterKit™ for your application. Check overall dimensions if there may be a tight fit. Check the air flow in "CFM" of your existing blower and match. Be sure the ID of the filter will fit on the inlet of your blower.
