AAF International Introduces MEGApleat(TM) M8 Premium Pleated Filter

AAF International Introduces MEGApleat(TM) M8 Premium Pleated Filter 
LOUISVILLE, KY -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 --  American Air Filter
Co., Inc. d/b/a AAF International, manufacturer of
AmericanAirFilter(R) and AAF(R) products, is proud to introduce the
innovative MEGApleat(TM) M8 premium pleated filter. When compared to
the leading MERV 8 pleated filter in the market today, the MEGApleat
M8 filter reduces energy costs by up to 20%, lasts 30% longer, and is
40% stronger. The MEGApleat M8 filter's patent-pending design is the
ideal choice for sustainable building design and operation, standing
up to the most challenging environments and applications. 
MEGApleat M8 filters promote maximum dust holding capacity (DHC) and
can last up to 6 months or longer in most operating environments.
This reduces the need to change filters every 3 to 4 months, saving
both labor and material costs and reducing waste. More importantly,
the MEGApleat M8 filter pays for itself through the energy savings
associated with lower operating resistance throughout the life of the
filter. The MEGApleat M8 filter is rated MERV 8.  
The patent-pending design of the MEGApleat M8 filter includes a
heavy-duty, galvanized expanded metal support grid combined with
high-strength wet beverage board. The optimized pattern of the grid
minimizes blockage to airflow. The metal cross-sectional area is 40%
larger than other wire-backed designs. The strength of the grid
combined with the proprietary moisture-resistant glue formulation
helps prevent blowouts and failures under the toughest environments,
including high-moisture applications. 
The MEGApleat M8 filter's uniform media with controlled fiber size
and blend minimizes performance variations, providing dependable and
consistent operation over time. The MEGApleat M8 filter has been
tested by an independent, third-party laboratory, ensuring that no
commercial bias is present. This is the only way to verify that your
air filter is performing to specification.  
Peter Kurto, COO AAF International, expressed his excitement
regarding the product introduction, "The MEGApleat M8 filter is a
direct result of listening to our customers and their desire for a
product with improved performance that reduces energy consumption,
last longer, and is stronger. Our de
dication to new product
development demonstrates our commitment to enhancing value through
innovation as we reinvigorate our roots as the global leader in air
filtration."
