BioCel VXL — Advancing High Efficiency Filtration

BioCel VXL filters provide near-HEPA level filtration efficiency with a much lower initial pressure drop than traditional HEPA filters. In addition, the media pack is enclosed in sturdy, light-weight cell sides constructed from HIPS. The V-bank BioCel filter weighs significantly less, and is much easier to handle and install when compared to traditional 12″-deep, box-style ASHRAE and HEPA grade filters with metal cell sides. Easier handling translates into time and cost savings during installation and removal.

BioCel VXL filters offer 99.99% average efficiency on 1.0μ to 5.0μ particles, which encompasses the sizes of most bacteria harmful to human health. It is 97.9% efficient on 0.3μ particles. With an initial pressure drop of .60 in. w.g., this extremely high efficiency filter has less than one-half the resistance of a HEPA and is comparable to many MERV 14 extended surface, box-style filters. 

BioCel VXL ULTRA with Antimicrobial

BioCel VXL ULTRA filters with antimicrobial are designed specifically to improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). The antimicrobial traps and concentrates particulate air contaminants while preserving the integrity of the filter media. Antimicrobial preservatives are not meant to increase the efficiency of the filter, nor to kill microorganisms “on the fly” as they pass through a filter. Antimicrobial is EPA registered and environmentally safe.


AAF Flanders has invested in manufacturing technology that improves media pack construction and allows for more consistent pleating. Thermoplastic separators maintain uniform spacing between pleats to allow optimal flow of air into and through the filter. This ensures performance and dust holding capacity, which maximizes service life.

The high impact polystyrene (HIPS) cell sides are lightweight and rugged. HIPS cell sides resist damage during shipping, handling, and operation. No metal is used in the BioCel VXL filter, so it is fully incinerable.
