How Media Air Cleaners Work

Media air cleaners can be used for either wet or dry applications. They work by drawing polluted air through a first stage pre-filter to capture large particulate and droplets. This extends the life of the primary media filter, which uses a combination of technologies including: straining, impaction, interception, and diffusion to strip submicron particles from the air. In many applications, the primary filter is sufficient to capture most of the dust and/or mist in the air stream. When higher efficiency is needed to capture and filter smoke, a final filter such as a 95% DOP or HEPA filter can be added to further clean the air.

Whether your application is generating oily smoke or steam, you may have visible “smoke” emissions above your mist collector. Before you add a HEPA or another filter to the system you have, contact your local authorized Trion Representative. They will work with you to determine your best solution and may be able to offer a better alternative.

Media Air Cleaner Facts

  • Media air cleaners can be configured to handle just about any industrial air filtration application; from dry dust to oily smoke, from sticky weld fume to waxy die casting smoke.
  • Media air cleaners can be installed in multiple configurations and locations: ducted/source capture installations, ambient air filtration, floor mount, machine mount, and overhead mount.
  • Multiple filter combinations on most media air cleaners allows tailoring the filters to suit the application the best.
