Changing the filters in your FM-22 Solid Ceiling Flush Mount Smoke Eater on a regular basis is required in order to maintain the lifetime blower motor warranty.
Each Filter Kit Includes;
- 12 – 1/2″ Tackified Pre-Filters – Change Monthly
- 6 – 1/2″ Carbon Filter Pads – Change Every 2 Months
- 1 – 12″ H.E.P.A. Filter – Change Annually
Pre-Filters - 12 Polyester pre filters are supplied in each filter kit. The pre filter removes larger particles such as lint, hair, dust, and pollen. The pre filter is important because it helps to prolong the life of the HEPA filter in the system. Essentially, the pre filter is the first line of defense in maintaining your smoke eater system. Easy-t0-change pre-filters are the first of 3 filter stages in your smoke eater because they protect the subsequent filters.
Pre-filters cannot be washed and must be changed at least once per month.
Activated Carbon Pads - 6 carbon pads are included with each kit. The activated carbon filter removes odors by absorbing the odor molecules into the filter. Since the activated carbon can only absorb a certain amount of molecules, it will no longer function properly once it is full. It is recommended that the carbon filters should be replaced on regular intervals.
The Carbon Filters cannot be washed and should be changed at least every 2 months.
HEPA Filter - 1 – 12″ HEPA Filter is supplied with each FM-22 Flush Mount Smoke Eater filter kit. The HEPA filter removes very small particles, such as smoke (from tobacco, burning wood, oil, rosin), dust mites, spores, mold spores, pollen, spray paint, spray paint dust, ashes, cement dust, auto emissions, textile fibers, fiberglass, hairspray, insecticide dust, copier toner and most viruses just to name a few. The HEPA filter is an extremely important filter and when used and maintained properly, it will dramatically improve your indoor air quality. We cannot stress enough the importance of the HEPA filter to our system and the fact the HEPA filter must be maintained in order to achieve the maximum results.
The HEPA filter cannot be washed and should be changed annually.
