Critical air filtration for
nuclear power plants

Nuclear power facilities must put safety above all — and AAF has supported this strategy since the industry began. Our critical air filtration solutions are designed expressly to help provide protection for the people who work inside nuclear plants and the communities that surround them. AAF offers nuclear-grade filter media, housings and equipment that meet the performance and quality standards of relevant agencies. Our products are installed in nuclear power facilities worldwide, which reflects a half century of confidence from our customers.



Performs a critical role under demanding conditions

The nuclear industry requires HEPA filtration with added safety protection. AAF answered their needs with the AstroCel l filter. That’s why it has been included on the U.S. Army Qualified Products List.

Designed to meet exacting industry needs

AAF supplies the nuclear power industry with High-Efficiency Gas Adsorbers (HEGA) that demonstrate a 99.99% minimum mechanical efficiency.

Includes the equipment needed for successful assembly

Products shipped from AAF also provide supplementary materials. This may include items such as test sections, housings, inlet/outlet transitions, testing requirements, packaging and shipping.

Demonstrates a long legacy as a leading supplier

We’ve been supplying the nuclear power industry since its start. That includes designing, building and testing the HEPA filter housing installed outdoors at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.







Performs a critical role under demanding conditions

Nuclear facilities need filtration solutions with proven reliability. AAF gives them the commitment and assurance they require. We designed the AstroCel l HEPA filter to meet the most stringent specifications in the nuclear industry. To provide even more peace of mind, we subject our complete HEPA filter assemblies to environmental and seismic qualifications. The result is a filter that can remain functional even during a nuclear incident.


Designed to meet exacting industry needs

Meeting the exacting needs of the nuclear power industry requires unrelenting attention to quality and standards. For more than 50 years, AAF has prioritized the toughest of those environmental and safety requirements. The AAF International Quality Assurance program addresses all 18 criteria structures of ASME NQA-1 (formally N45.2), “Quality Assurance Requirements for Nuclear Facility Applications.” By supplying high-efficiency air filtration solutions, our program is governed by standards set by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Nuclear Codes and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Nuclear Safety Standards.
