Filter Maintenance Guide

Pre HEPA carbon filter numberedThe filter set to the left represents the Pre-filter, HEPA, and Activated Carbon filter that come with our E8, E20 Plus, and DE20 plus systems.

1. The Pre-filter is a material wrapped around the outside of the HEPA filter and is engineered to catch a majority of the larger particles. This filter's purpose is to extend the lifespan of the HEPA filter which is a more expensive material. We recommend replacing the pre-filter at least every 6 months. In dust heavy environments the pre-filter may need changing more frequently.

2. The HEPA filter is an ultra efficient material that stops 99.97% of all particles. With proper pre-filter changes, the HEPA filter will remain effective up to 3 and possibly 5 years depending on usage. We recommend 3 year replacement because when an ultra efficient filter becomes overloaded it restricts airflow and puts much higher stress on the motor which could lead to decreased motor life and voided warranty.

3. Activated Carbon is the last stage of the filters and will capture odors and airborne chemicals. Both the 6kg and 2.5kg carbon filters will be effective to 3 years and we recommend changing them around that time. The life of this filter can be shortened if exposed to consistent high amounts of chemicals and odors.

3. On the inside of the HEPA sits an activated carbon infused wrap material which stops from spreading odors and freshens up the smell of the air. This filter has a lifespan up to 1 year but when exposed to consistent amounts of odors or chemicals, this lifespan may be reduced.
