Kimberly-Clark Professional* Filtration exhibited for the first time at the 2018 AHR Expo, January 22-24, in Chicago. We featured our broad range of nonwoven filter media for HVAC applications, including pleat, pocket and mini-pleat filters.
“As a valued partner to our filter manufacturer customers, we enjoyed connecting with the larger HVAC community and discussing the important role that air filter media plays in achieving indoor environmental goals,” said Juliana Khouri, category marketing manager, Kimberly-Clark Professional Partnership Products. “We participated in the ASHRAE 52.2 committee meeting to keep our fingers on the pulse of this important and evolving industry standard.”
Kimberly-Clark sponsored the ASHRAE Winter Conference Welcome Reception at the Chicago Cultural Center.

Customers choose INTREPID* Filter Media from Kimberly-Clark Professional* Filtration for a number of reasons. Our nonwoven, electret-treated filter media provides both high initial and high sustained filtration efficiencies — from MERV 7-15 — and does so with a low pressure drop, for reduced airflow resistance, which results in lower HVAC system energy consumption.
High filtration efficiencies are important for superior indoor air quality (IAQ), which in turn, can impact the health and productivity of building occupants. According to ASHRAE’s Position Document on Filtration and Air Cleaning, the use of air filters that capture particles 2.5 microns or smaller can lead to substantial health benefits.
“Submicron particles — those under 2.5 microns — can travel to the deepest part of the lungs, where they can lead to health problems,” said Khouri. “The superior particle capture efficiency afforded by our media’s electret treatment removes submicron particles like dust, mold, pollution, bacteria and allergens from the breathing air.”
Coupled with its electret treatment, the underlying mechanical structure of Kimberly-Clark’s air filter media removes submicron particles while keeping airflow resistance low for a long period of time. Low airflow resistance allows the HVAC system motor to function more energy-efficiently, for reduced energy costs. Plus, because filters made with Kimberly-Clark filter media last longer, maintenance time and disposal costs associated with changing out filters is reduced.

FILTECH 2018 is right around the corner, will you be attending? FILTECH (March 13-15 in Cologne, Germany) is the largest and most important filtration event worldwide. We’re looking forward to participating in the robust exchange of information and ideas among filtration industry leaders and technical experts.
We welcome the opportunity to meet with you at the Conference. Please email Business Development Manager, Kevin Morrow, if you’d like to arrange a meeting.
