American Air Filter Co., Inc. d/b/a AAF International, manufacturer of AmericanAirFilter® and AAF® products, is proud to introduce the VariSorb XL15, a high efficiency particulate and gas-phase filter. Independent, third party tests reveal that the VariSorb XL15 filter has the highest gas removal efficiency compared to leading competitor filters.

VariSorb XL15 filters are designed to improve indoor air quality through the effective removal of indoor and outdoor particulate and gaseous contaminants typically found in urban environments. These include Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Sulphur Oxide (SOx), Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and Ozone.

The VariSorb XL15 filter is suitable for retrofitting into existing HVAC systems, for specification in new construction, or for direct replacement of 12-inch deep, single-header filters. The VariSorb XL15 filter features a pleated media pack comprised of high activity carbon particles bonded into a three dimensional network of bicomponent fibres that maximise the exposure of the sorbent to gas. Unlike traditional granular bed chemical filters, the very small carbon granules in the media ensures a much higher effective area per pound of media, resulting in a high spontaneity of adsorption.

VariSorb XL15 filters replace existing HVAC box style filters with no changes required for frames or latches. The filters are rated MERV 15 per ASHRAE 52.2 standards.
