What is the difference between panel filters and pleated panel filters?


Pleated panel filters are named as such because the material within the filter has been folded into an accordion-like pattern to form pleats.

The bending pattern enables them to fit inside the frame without increasing the size of the filter.

These pleats increase the surface area and dirt holding capacity of the filters, which makes them more efficient than flat panel filters.

The higher surface area ensures maximum filtration potential and minimum airflow resistance.

Also, the depths of the pleats correspond to that of the holding frame.

The pleats can be spaced at any length dictated by the filtration requirements and can assume narrow U shape or wide V shape.

We hope this article has helped you to better understand panel filters.
