VariCel® M-Pak

With the same media area as the traditional 12-inch-deep filter in a 6-inch-deep design, AAF’s VariCel M-Pak filter delivers comparable efficiency, pressure drop, and overall performance in a much smaller package.



AAF’s VariCel M-Pak is available in MERV 11, MERV 13, and MERV 14 efficiencies.


Dust Holding Capacity

VariCel M-Pak filter media is made of microglass paper with a water-repellent binder which is formed using dual density media. This allows particles to be collected throughout the full thickness of the media, substantially increasing dust holding capacity.



The VariCel M-Pak is available in a 6” depth.


Initial Resistance

The initial resistance of the VariCel M-Pak is 0.39” In W.G. for MERV 11, 0.56” In W.G. for MERV 13 and 0.58” In W.G. for MERV 14.


Final Resistance

The recommended final resistance of the VariCel II MH is 1.5” In W.G.
