- ULPA (Ultra Low Particulate Air) filters are required in sensitive areas that require the highest level of air filtration. An ULPA filter meeting North American and European test standards can remove from the air a minimum of 99.999% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria particles at 0.12 microns or larger. ULPA filters can also be used in conjunction with carbon filters to remove odours and VOC’s depending on the needs of the OEM and their application.
The air filter standards that ULPA filters are tested to make them ideal for sensitive applications where ultra-pure air filtration is a necessity. They are not required in commercial spaces, homes, or schools – usually, HEPA filters meet these application requirements. ULPA filters are often used in applications where airborne particles are dangerous to human health or essential in manufacturing or assembly operations of sensitive equipment.
