Mesh Filter: SilentMaster, MD, FloMaster

Product Details

Some central vacuums utilize a secondary filter in case the primary filter fails. The Mesh Filter acts as an excellent secondary filter. It is sturdy enough stay in place and not be suctioned into the motor. It is very durable and will keep the dangerous debris out of the motor should the main paper or cloth filter fail (The motor will survive finer debris going through it). This filter can be used on bottom emptying units as well as top emptying. Remove the primary paper or cloth filtration and set this filter in place up against the motor plate. The motor plate is where the motor sits on the other side but the suction hole is visible. It can also sit up against a screen and act as a better filter than the screen. Only one of these filters is needed. In some models one Mesh Filter replaces three mesh/foam/mesh filters (such as Silent Master, MD, Modern Day, Flo-Master, and Air Flo). The Mesh Filter can be cut to shape as needed for some models such as Vacumaid and Nutone which may have a smaller diameter.

Filter is sold individually, is 14-inches in diameter and about one inch thick.

I've read the reviews, and some may have merit, but in all honesty I don't see any negative to this filter. I waited to see how it performed so I could make an honest comment. The filter is fantastic, and far superior to the original old green hay-bail style filter. I noticed no reduction in suction, and couldn't tell any difference until I checked the filter after some use. What I discovered was that there a marked reduction in dust and contaminates being passed through the filter, and nothing reaching the motors, which occurred with the old style filter. It took more time to clean the new filter (I'm probably over critical in this area), but so what. My time is cheap, and if it prevents damage, and save repair or replacement. No big deal. I really never gave the filter that much thought until I read about it, and ordered one. I wish I had this filters years a go. I had no trimming issues, as one comment stated, and it fit perfectly into my MD system. As for the sewn in handle that was mentioned, why, it's not that difficult to remove once installed, but if one is sewn in, fine. Routine maintenance and cleaning is the key to keeping the vacuum system working perfectly, and this filter is an A+ bonus. Use this filter if you want to protect your motors.

We received the filter quickly. Works perfectly. Having the new filter significantly improved the system's suction.

Big enough to cut the needed size. Would have been nice if it had a strap sewn onto middle for pulling it out when cleaning it.
