* A 2" or more operational pressure drop difference typically exists between commodity cartridges and ProTura™ Nanofiber Cartridges on the same collector.
Cost based on a 90%-rated efficient motor. On average, commodity media pulses every 10 seconds, whereas ProTura™ Nanofiber pulses every 60 seconds.
ProTura™ Nanofiber cartridge filters can last up to twice as long as commodity filters, such as cellulose or cellulose blends.
** Include service rates, costs, overhead or overtime rates associated with the staff responsible for filter changeout.
On average, it takes 1 hour to change 12 cartridge filters.
