offers a lower amount media thus lower amount of dust load capacity and
higher restriction for airflow giving you the lowest
- The High
offers a higher amount of media and will deliver the higher
amount of dust load and less airflow restriction giving you the highest
Deep Series Pleat = 1.6 Sq. Ft. = 0.37”WG (92 PA)
2” Deep Series Pleat = 3.2 Sq. Ft. = 0.23”WG (57 PA)
4” Deep Series Pleat = 5.9 Sq. Ft. = 0.22”WG (55 PA)
Deep Series Pleat = 2.3 Sq. Ft. = 0.31”WG (77 PA)

Foot Media Review
Lets say you have 15 each 24x24x2 pleated filters, what advantages
would you have to use High Capacity over the Standard Capacity?
Square Feet Savings
15 x 3.2 sqft = 48 sqft of filter media
High: 15 x 4.8 sqft = 72 sqft of filter media
surface area! Or 7.5 more Standard Filters!
15 x $3.39 = $50.85 per change
High: 15 x $3.72 = $55.80 per change
$4.95 more for 7.5 Standard Filters or $0.66 each
Or 22.5=Standard filters for only $55.80 per change!
would have cost you $76.28 to run 22.5 Standard Capacity and you have
no filter track modifications!

filters are offered with an expanded metal backing. The Expanded Metal
support backing is designated with an “E” in the
model number and
offers exceptional media support. The expanded metal backing is
impervious to rust, unlike other metal backings. Rust on the downstream

The metal backing is securely bonded to the media for filter integrity.
