Parker Introduces LoadTECH® MERV 14 Rated, High-Efficiency, Extended Rigid Cell Filters for Commercial HVAC Applications

Energy-saving filters feature proprietary E-Pleat® media technology that rivals the capacity and performance of similar rigid style filters on the market

 

Jeffersonville, Indiana, February 2020 – Parker HVAC Filtration, a division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, introduces two new energy-saving filter products for commercial HVAC use: Parker LoadTECH® 4" and 12” Filters. Both filters are MERV 14-rated for high efficiency and feature exclusive gold synthetic media with an embossed design to capture dust at a higher capacity than similar models on the market.

 

The advanced filter systems utilize Parker’s proprietary E-pleat® technology, which molds filtration media into a series of pre-formed channels that direct the air smoothly through the filter, allowing for even loading, minimum resistance, and complete media utilization. The advanced media used in the filters also resists tearing, damage, moisture, and microbial growth contributing to long filter life and fewer filter changeouts over time.

 

“Commercial customers today are more focused than ever on energy savings and sustainability.” “By incorporating a high-quality filter such as LoadTECH that’s MERV 14-rated on the ASHRAE scale into their HVAC systems, they will not only realize greater efficiency but also meet the requirements for LEED green building certification,” Richard Keith Chesson, Technical Team Leader, explained. “Additionally, with indoor air pollutants being a top environmental health concern, choosing a highly-rated filter is an effective way to provide occupants with clean, comfortable air.”

 

Parker LoadTECH 4” and 12” filters are ideal for variable air volume systems across a variety of markets including hotels and entertainment complexes, food processing, microelectronics manufacturing, data centers, commercial office buildings, schools and universities, clean manufacturing facilities, hospitals and healthcare facilities, government institutions, and industrial manufacturing.

 

Both the 4" and 12" filters feature a rugged, high-impact polystyrene (HIPS) frame that resists cracking. Additional benefits include:
• Low pressure drop for optimal energy savings
• Lightweight construction for easy handling
• Interchangeable width and height dimensions; filters can be installed with pleats oriented vertically or horizontally
• Rated face velocity of 500 FPM
• Maximum operating temperature of 170°F (77°C)
• Classified per UL 900 for flammability

 

Available Sizes
The larger 12" LoadTECH models match the dust-holding capacity of commercial 4-V filters in the HVAC market. The compact 4" LoadTECH models offers simplified handling plus reduced storage space requirements and shipping costs with the same filter performance as the 12" LoadTECH models.
