Industrial Air Filtration: Intake filters and Silencers

The AFE Series intake filter is a closed circuit design that offers efficient filtration for engines, compressors, and blowers. This unit is suitable for indoor or outdoor installation. It can be mounted directly on the inlet to machinery or can be remotely located in another area of choice. This makes it possible to duct intake piping to the cleanest and coolest air source available.

American Filtration offers small, medium and large capacity intake filters and filter/silencers for the protection of air compressors, blowers, engines and turbines. Standard air intake filters have capacities up to 40,000 CFM with outlet sizes up to 42" diameter. All models are furnished with rugged weather hoods. Standard materials are carbon steel and are furnished with rust preventive primer coating beneath all weather paint.

The AF, AFE and AFS Series incorporate a "Radial Fin" design which offers maximum filter area, low pressure drop, and a large dirt holding capacity for long element life. Standard models are furnished with a felted polyester medium rated at 98% efficiency on particle sizes 10 microns and larger. After several cleanings, most elements can be returned to the factory for rebuilding.

The AFP two and three stage filter series incorporate a panel style element with efficiencies up to 99.98% of 0.3 microns.

AE series  American Filtration offers durable, heavy gauge filter housings which may be mounted directly to the exhaust port of a vacuum pump or remotely (indoors or outdoors). This design features a highly efficient coalescing element utilizing graded porosity media to effectively remove heavy concentrations of smoke and oil mist from the exhaust stream of vacuum pumps.


Custom design and materials are available on all models in order to meet higher flow rates and special applications.


This panel type housing is designed for removal of airborne particulate for centrifugal compressors, blowers, turbines and other smooth flow machines. Special AFP models include:
  • "Walk-in" units that utilize inertial spin primary elements
  • activated charcoal primary panels for removal of corrosive vapors and/or odor causing gases
  • Custom design and fabrication are available.
