35% more media captures more particulate and extends filter life.

PleatLock filters are now standard in all RoboVent dust and fume collectors. The reason is simple – they offer more media and better performance for less money. With more pleats per inch of filter than minipleat technology, PleatLock filters provide 35% more media to capture weld fume and metal cutting particulate, effectively extending filter life. This filter technology provides longer intervals between filter changes, less downtime for maintenance and greater savings on the cost of replacement filters.

Available in A15 and M11

A15 PleatLock premium filter
A15 PleatLock premium filter media is a proprietary cellulose polyester blend with an initial Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value of 15 (MERV 15).

M11 PleatLock filter mediaM11 PleatLock filter media is a proprietary  cellulose polyester blend suitable for standard dust and fume applications.

MiniPleats vs. PleatLock

  • Hot Melt Separators on the inside of the pleat pack hold the pleats wide and open
  • Outter straps hold the outside of the pleat pack in position
  • Extra wide pleat spacing provides excellent release when reverse pulsed with compressed air
  • Best used on 100% polyester filters
  • Used in general industry, chemical, pharmaceutical, grinding, polishing, powder coating or laser cutting
  • Types of dust – metal, ceramics, fiberglass, bulk & powders, food dusts like sugar, whey and starches
  • Dimples are embossed on inside and outside of pleat pack forming channel to allow high air flows
  • 35% more media in the same amount of area compared to competing technologies
  • Fine fiber designs promote surface loading for better release of dust when reverse pulsed with compressed air and high filtration efficiency
  • Used for most metal applications, welding, laser, thermal spray, carbon black, bulk & powders, pharmaceutical and other general industrial applications
  • Types of dust – metal fumes, metal, bulk & powder

The Power in the Pleats

RoboVent’s PleatLock design embosses “locks” or “dimples” on both the inside and outside of the filter to maintain consistent pleat spacing. The embossed dimples prevent the pleats from pinching or collapsing and help keep channels clean as air enters and exits the filter. As a result, the entire filter surface is available to capture particulate. PleatLock technology the ideal choice for both cellulose polyester blended medias and can be coated with nanofiber.
