In today’s environment, transportation agencies are increasingly focused on reducing the risk posed by pollutants and airborne contaminants to deliver the safest environments for their customers. Thermo King’s return air filters provide the maximum protection for both riders and the HVAC equipment. Our filters prevent particulate accumulation on evaporator coils resulting in reduced road calls from HVAC system failures.
Thermo King offers three air filters in several filtering
efficiencies with different contaminant holding capacities.
What MERV rating means in air filtration
A clear strategy to mitigate in-cabin contaminant exposure to passengers and reduce HVAC maintenance costs is to use a quality filter with a high Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) and efficiency rating.
A filter with a higher rating is more effective at filtering out contaminants and small particles.
Merv Rating Levels
All three air filters meet the standard set forth by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 302 (49 CFR 571.302) and American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Standard 52.2-2007. They are also disposable.
Non-OEM filters can create many downstream impacts to the reliability of your Thermo King system. Over time, this could make your system work harder than it needs to and lead to early system component failure.
Let us be your first line of defense against contaminated air
We understand that you are working tirelessly to provide a safer environment for your customer. Air filters are an essential part of that process. Let us help you provide cleaner, higher-quality air, and keep your HVAC system clean and operating efficiently.
