Wash Tub Molded Fiberglass and Lid for Two 13x16 Cells
Non Stock. Special order Item.
Industrial grade, US manufactured by MFG Tray Corp. Lid is included. Perfect size for two 13" x 16" cells. This tub is 12" deep, we found that 12 gallons will fill this tub to 10" deep. The fiberglass is very sturdy and will not deflect when full of soap and water. The tub could be picked up while full of cells and water (water sloshes out).
The super fine particulate from the cells will leave a grease-like ring. This particulate would infuse in to soft plastic tubs or the dishwasher. The molded fiberglass surface is hard but smooth and impervious to the super fine particulate.
PLEASE NOTE that the wash tub is manufactured to order and ships directly from the factory. There may be a delay of up to a week before shipping.
Inside bottom dimensions are 17¼ x 14¾".
Inside depth is 12 inches.
Both cells and prefilters fit in this tub for the following models:
- White-Rodgers SST1000 with two cells 10½ x 16 x 5
- White-Rodgers SST1400 with two cells 13 x 16 x 5
- White-Rodgers SC500 with one cell 11 x 16 x 5

- Honeywell; all F300 F50 with two cells 12½ x 16 x 4½
- Freidrich C90A C90B with one cell 12½ x 16 x 4½
- Trion; all with two cells 12½ x 16 x 5
Cleaning Ionizing Wires
Honeywell recommends wiping down the ionizing wires when washing the collector cells. Also check the wires for roughness, a side effect of the corona discharge is the growth of a white quartz layer.
Air near the high-voltage ionizer wires breaks down in to ions and high energy electrons. This mixture of ions and electrons is called the corona plasma. The ions collide with suspended particulate and confer the charge.
The plasma has an unintended reaction with cyclomethicone, a silicone oil present in household products such as deodorant sprays and skin lotions. This reaction leaves deposits of solid silicon dioxide on the ionizing wires. These insulating formations will significantly suppress the corona pattern and intensity.
Research has shown cleaning the wires with 600 grit emery cloth will remove the silicon dioxide. But at the risk of damaging the wire surface or breaking the wire.
Prefilter Efficiency Improvement
Aprilaire #412 RP Super Filter Coat increases efficiency and dust holding capacity of aluminum prefilters used in electronic air cleaners.
The Super Coat adhesive have a unique viscosity oil in a gel-like straucture. This viscosity oil constantly absorbs dirt particles. As particles are trapped, they recede into the interior of the adhesive, and throught the circulation of the low viscosity oil as renewed impurity absorbing surface is established. This action provides a continuous impurity absorbing surface layer.
The aluminum mesh prefilters will maintain their initial efficiency with periodic applications of RP Super Filter Coat after cleaning. After a period of use of the prefilter, dirt, lint and the original water soluble adhesive coating are easily removed by simply flushing the filter in a stream of water. A new, easily-applied coating of RP Super Filter Coat can restores the filter's superior performance qualities.
