About Accordion Filters

Accordion filters are a cylindrical filter, designed to protect and extend the service intervals of your equipment. Accordion filters are used on large compressors, blowers, and in some special chemical process systems. Accordion filters are comprised of a cylindrical pleat pack made of textile filter media and support mesh.  Accordion filters are commonly available in a wide variety of sizes, and most come with a pre-filter foam wrap.

Accordion filter elements extend the life of industrial equipment by preventing contaminants from progressing downstream. Pleated medias increase the filter area, allowing low-pressure drop and high particle-holding capacity. They are effective in removing up to 98% of dust and contaminates from air and gas applications.

Accordion filters are commonly referred to as a slip-on style because they do not have an inner core, fin seals, or end caps.
