Permatron hospital grade prefilter for the Honeywell F52E1016, single cell model. The F52E uses one pre-filter.
Verify your prefilter dimensions, the F52E models were manufactured with different prefilter sizes. This 198441 prefilter measures 23-3/8 x 11-3/8 x 5/16 inch. For an alternate size see the F52C prefilter 190909.
Permatron, the premiere prefilter manufacturer, designed this prefilter to exact Honeywell specs. The metal mesh consists of 5 layers of slit and expanded aluminum of differing densities. The frame is upgraded to stainless steel.
Aprilaire 412 Super Filter Coat increases efficiency and dust holding capacity of 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 a 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.
When cleaning the prefilter be careful not to flatten down the woven foil. The aluminum weave can be easily flattened with water pressure or when cleaning with a brush. Soaking the prefilters in a tub is recommended. See your owner's manual for washing instructions.
Permatron filters are made in Illinois. The foam, activated carbon, poly-propylene, aluminum mesh and steel frame are all products of the USA.
The genuine Honeywell prefilters are stamped with Product of Mexico.
