LOUISVILLE, KY -- (Marketwired) -- 09/04/14 -- American Air Filter Co., Inc. d/b/a AAF International, manufacturer of AmericanAirFilter® and AAF® products, announced the introduction of the VariCel 2+ filter line. Utilizing AAF's exclusive Impress(1) pleating technology, VariCel 2+ filters combine the lowest resistance with high mechanical strength, while maximizing energy efficiency. This combination provides valuable overall operating cost savings.
Peter Kurto, CEO of AAF International, states, "Utilizing the Impress pleating technology, the VariCel 2+ filter is like no other filter in the industry. The more efficient airflow, combined with the unparalleled strength, yields a filter with superior dust holding capacity, low pressure drop, and extended life. To our customers, that means an ultra-tough, high performance filter with overall operating cost savings."
AAF's Impress Technology is a patented pleat formation process that employs embossed media to form the optimal pleat geometry. This combined with less restriction from separator material and better media usage delivers a higher dust holding capacity (DHC) and a lower pressure drop for greater energy efficiency. VariCel 2+ filters utilize this exclusive pleating technology, to make the most energy efficient 4-inch filters available.
Higher DHC equates to a longer service life, reducing the number of filter changeouts, saving both labor and material costs while reducing waste. In addition, VariCel 2+ filters are only one-third the volume of other high efficiency filters, significantly reducing the contribution to landfills, shipping costs, and storage space.
Impress Technology pleat formation delivers a robust media pack, giving the VariCel 2+ filter a burst strength that exceeds the standard seen in the industry. VariCel 2+ media is moisture resistant, and can withstand intermittent exposure to water without affecting filter performance. The media pack is encased in a high impact plastic frame and completely sealed in a water-based copolymer emulsion, keeping particulate from bypassing the filter media. The pleat formation, plastic frame, and center support bar make the VariCel 2+ filter mechanically stable, providing high performance even in tough operating conditions.
VariCel 2+ filters are available in High Capacity (HC) and Standard Capacity (SC) models and are available in three efficiencies: MERV 15, MERV 14, and MERV 11. VariCel 2+ filters are appropriate for general HVAC and industrial applications, as well as applications operating with variable air volume, turbulent airflow, or high humidity. Engineered for a variety of applications, the VariCel 2+ filter is an easy upgrade from standard 4-inch pleated filters when higher efficiency and longer life are desired.
AAF International, based in Louisville, Kentucky, has more than 3,000 employees, 21 manufacturing facilities, and 5 R&D centers worldwide. AAF designs, develops, and manufactures air filtration solutions for commercial, industrial, cleanroom, transportation, and nuclear power applications. AAF also provides inlet air cooling and sound attenuation solutions for high-speed rotating machinery. For more information visit www.aafintl.com.

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
