Product Details

12x12x1 Filtrete® Dust & Pollen Reduction Filter from 3M  - #9880

The Filtrete® Micro Allergen Reduction Filter carries a 3M Microparticle Performance Rating (MPR) of 600 - roughly equivalent to a MERV 8 rating

Features:

  • Meets Indoor Air Quality Guidelines from the American Lung Association® Health House® Indoor Air Quality Guidelines
  • No unnecessary antimicrobial chemicals added; Filtrete filtering material will not support the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew or fungi in normal use
  • Contains electrostatically charged media to filter and attract particles in the air
  • Excellent for high-velocity equipment.

Attracts and captures large allergens like:

  • Pollen
  • Mold spores 
  • Large dust particles

* It is recommended to replace your Filtrete filter every 3 months.  However, certain conditions in your home will significantly add particles to the air - this will cause the filter to capture more particles, reducing it's life to potentially less than 3 months.  Dirty duct work, pets, construction work, sanding projects, tobacco smoke, burning candles, fireplaces and wood-burning stoves are just some of the conditions that can shorten the life of your filter.

WHY USE MPR RATHER THAN MERV RATING?

The Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) industry uses the ASHRAE 52.2 Standard, which assigns a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) to a filter. One part of MERV reports a filter's ability to capture medium to large particles between 1 and 10 microns. This value is helpful in comparing the performance of different filters but it is not adequate alone because particles greater than one micron make up only about 1% of the contaminants in your indoor air.

Another part of MERV addresses submicron particles. 3M calls this the MPR or Microparticle Performance Rating. It measures a filter's ability to capture particles between 0.3 and 1.0 micron. Based on independent laboratory tests, 3M's MPR measures a filter's ability to capture submicron particles that make up 99% of the particles in the air, such as bacteria, smoke and smog.
