Building air quality is vitally important today to help keep us healthy and safe at home, at work and places where we gather. Quite simply, there’s more pollution in the air and as the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has illustrated, the effects can be devastating. LD Filtration has the specialty filters demanded by hospitals, schools and clean tech manufacturing, including high-MERV rated products and certified HEPA filters. We have a full line of in-stock and custom fitted air filters for commercial and residential buildings. We supply dust collection filters used in facilities that require the cleanest possible air, such as food processing plants and high-technology manufacturing. Filtration in agriculture can also prevent spread of infectious diseases in humans and livestock. Efficient air filtration systems can also save you money through significant energy savings.
MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) filters are rated on how small of a particle they can filter out of the air. MERV filters range from 1 to 16. The higher numbers mean better filtration. High-efficiency filters will range from 13 to 16 MERV. filtering particles as small as 0.3 microns with 75 percent efficiency. HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are the most efficient air filters. They are rated from 17-20 MERV. HEPA filters meet standards that remove at least 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns, filtration typically used in hospitals to stop the spread of disease-causing organisms.
