Parker’s New MICROGUARD® LR Sub-HEPA 12" High Efficiency Filters Meet Air Cleanliness Demands of Commercial and Industrial Environments

Proprietary N-Fuse™ technology delivers 98.5% efficiency on 0.30 micron particulate


Jeffersonville, Indiana, February 2020 – Parker HVAC Filtration, a division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, today announced the launch of its MICROGUARD LR® low-resistance,12" final-stage filter that provides Sub-HEPA filtration performance thanks to next-generation N-Fuse™ technology. N-Fuse by Parker incorporates three layers of a hybrid synthetic gradient-density treated media that delivers 98.5% efficiency on 0.30 micron particulate in ASHRAE and HEPA frame systems.


Like several of Parker HVAC’s other recent filter products that have entered the market, MICROGUARD LR features the company’s patented embossed E-Pleat® technology to effectively maintain filter geometry and spacing.


“The Parker HVAC Filtration Division is continually investing in new technologies that will make improvements to indoor air quality while maximizing energy efficiency.” “These innovations align with our mission to advance HVAC filtration, increase productivity, and create healthier air,” said Pam Henley, Marketing Manager at Parker HVAC Filtration. “


Parker MICROGUARD LR filters are ideal for air handler unit (AHU) applications. Unlike traditional “separator-style” HEPA box filters, MICROGUARD LR filters require no significant capital expenditures to upgrade existing HVAC mechanical systems required to achieve high levels of indoor air quality. They are often used in mist collection systems for turning, milling, and grinding machinery processes using soluble water and/or water-based cutting fluids.


Additional markets that would benefit from MICROGUARD LR filters include: automotive, cleanroom facilities, pharmaceutical/biotechnology, hospitals and healthcare facilities, food and beverage processing, schools and universities, semiconductor fabrication, data centers, and industrial manufacturing.


Product features and benefits of MICROGUARD LR filters include:
• Media pack that is fully sealed around the perimeter into the frame, preventing leakage and air bypass
• Longer filter life and fewer changeouts with high dust-holding capacity
• Standard 1/4" x 3/4" dove tail interlocking gasket installed on air-leaving side of box and vertical side of header in single header frames
• Rated air flow capacity to 2,000 CFM
• Classified per UL 900 for flammability
