VariCel XL Filter


VariCel XL filters contain up to 67% more media and offer more than twice the service life of standard double header models.

Made of 30-gauge galvanized steel, VariCel XL filter sides interlock with the 13/16” headers along the entire length of each side, providing maximum sealing. Inside, VariCel media is made with pleated microglass paper bonded to corrugated aluminum separators. These separators maintain uniform pleat spacing for optimum airflow. The media is made with dual density construction consisting of coarser fibers on the air entering side and finer fibers on the air leaving side. This design allows dirt particles to be collected throughout depth of the filter, utilizing the media’s full capacity and cleaning potential. A liner of microglass mat packing at the top and bottom of the media pack prevents damage and bypass leakage.

Additional options include expanded aluminized steel faceguards, factory-installed gaskets, and vinyl coated separators for corrosive conditions. Using prefilters, such as AAF’s PerfectPleat pleated filters or “5700” panel filters, will greatly extend the life of VariCel filters.

Available in the following models …

  • Double Header
  • Single Header
  • Single Header 1-1/8”
    For added strength, the standard 13/16” header is modified by bonding a metal adaptor to the backside of the header on all four sides to extend the header thickness to 1 1/8”.
