Dry Media filters

consist usually of a permanent frame and a dry replaceable medium of cellulose, asbestos or glass fibers, specially treated paper, cotton batting , wool felt or synthetic material.


The air passages thru the medium are smaller than those of the viscous impingement type filter, and therefore lower air velocities are necessary to avoid excessive resistance . In order to obtain a large surface area relative to cross – sectional area, the medium is usually pleated in accordion form.
