Pleated filters allow maximum filtration area for the space used. These filters have a variety of end caps ranging from epoxy and plastic to molded felt. Some of these filter elements are self supporting while others have metal cores comprised of springs or screens. Depending upon the particular application, some of the screens are zinc plated to protect them in corrosive environments.
The most common uses for pleated filters are air intake filters for small gasoline engines (snow blowers, lawnmowers, chain saws, etc.). STD's custom Freon gas filters are widely used in the refrigerator and air conditioning industries.
At our Cleveland manufacturing facility we have the capability to roll and weld metal screens that are used as a support for some of the pleated felt filters. It helps the filter retain its size and shape. Since some of these filters are used in corrosive environments or to filter more hazardous substances, we have the support screens plated to increase the life of the part. Still other filters use steel springs for internal support. Whatever your requirement, we have the capability to work with you.
