  • The results were established by extensive durability test on an automatic welding system.
  • The lower the filter surface, the higher is the airspeed across the filter media. The particles form a solid filter cake and the flow through the filter media is restricted. The dust load capacity is very poor.
  • The higher the filter surface, the lower is the airspeed across the filter media. Particles form an open porous filter cake which acts as an additional filter. The air can flow through the filter cake and the filter media easily for a long time. The dust storage capacity is very high. This is the reason for the much longer filter life of the MaxiFil.
