The AAF Flanders PREpleat LPD (low pressure drop) High Capacity Air filters are designed for dust holding, low pressure drop and have a MERV 8 rating. AAF Flanders’ PREpleat LPD HC filter is the lowest initial resistance MERV 8 pleated filter in the industry. Combined with its high DHC, the PREpleat LPD HC filter provides an extended life cycle and energy efficient performance.
Superior Design and Construction
Media: 100% synthetic non-woven, proprietary media that can be recycled. Engineered with a gradient density composition that achieves a MERV 8 rating using the mechanical method of particle capture. Media does not rely on an electrostatic charge to capture particulate, since electrostatic charge dissipates over time.
Media Support: Expanded metal is continuously laminated on the air leaving side to provide pleat stability during operation. Pleat shape is maintained allowing full media utilization which maximizes DHC.
Pleat Design: V-Pleat design aids in pressure drop while reducing energy cost. Design allows for maximum airflow and DHC during the life of the filter.
Frame: Heavy-duty, two piece, moisture-resistant frame with diagonal support members. Frame is bonded to the media at all points of contact for unsurpassed frame strength. Interlocking corners and positive media-to- frame seal reduce the possibility of air bypass.
Operating Temperature Limits: Maximum operating temperature is 180°F (82°C).
The PREpleat LPD HC high capacity pleated panel filters are excellent prefilters and are best suited for heavy duty, commercial, industrial, pharmaceutical applications, as well as other industrial applications where high dust holding is required. PREpleat LPD HC filters can be installed in both front access holding frames and side access housings.

Tips for Measuring Filters
To make sure your custom filters fit right the first time, here are some tips from the RememberTheFilter.com filter measuring experts:
- Never just assume what is printed on your old filter is the exact size. Measure your existing filter down to 1/8" for both the length and width and use those measurements for your new ones.
- Check out our "How to measure your air filter" page for more information on getting the perfect fit.
Still a bit nervous? Start by ordering just one case of filters if you need multiple sizes before ordering for your entire system. That way you can see how quickly your custom filters are delivered (for FREE, BTW) and how perfect they fit, so you can order more with confidence!
If you have any questions about measuring your filters before placing your order, call our Customer Care Team. We’re here to help you get the perfect fit, every time!
* The only time you may incur a remake charge is if there is a difference in price between the original product and the remake.
