The Accumulair Diamond is one of the highest efficiency Accumulair filter on the market. Given a MERV 13 filter rating, this filter is a high efficiency filter that removes particulates measuring from 0.3 microns to 1.0 microns. This means that this filter removes a large variety of indoor air pollutants, including dust mites/particles, mold spores, pet dander, pollen, tobacco smoke, some viruses, and all bacteria. Accumulair Diamond filters use electrostatic filtration, which uses a special synthetic filter media to attract particles. With a dust spot efficiency of 89-90%, the Accumulair Diamond is more than 30 times more efficient than regular fiberglass filters and has a filter efficiency almost equivalent to a true HEPA filter.

- Recyclable, galvanized, corrosion resistant metal backing
- 2-piece heavy duty die cut frame
The Accumulair Diamond is specifically designed to achieve points towards LEED certification. LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an organization that rates projects delivering better environmental and health performance. Accumulair Diamond filters do this by providing higher efficiency, cleaner air, and longer-lasting filtration. When constructing the Accumulair Diamond, even the smallest details are important for designing the best that Accumulair has to offer.
Made of 100% high performance Tribo-Electric synthetic media, the Accumulair Diamond takes electrostatic filtration to the next level. This special material, made of a co-polymer blend, creates higher efficiency with low resistance to air flow. These specially made fibers are also hydrophobic, meaning they will not absorb moisture, and they will not support the growth of harmful microbes like bacteria, mildew, fungi, and mold.
The pleated shape of the filter is specially designed to maximize air flow and particle-holding capacity. To increase durability, the pleated media is laminated to a metal backing that is recyclable, galvanized, and corrosion resistant. The pleated media is then bonded to the inside of a two-piece die cut frame constructed of a heavy duty, moisture resistant, clay coated board that has diagonal and horizontal grid supports.
How It Works
The Accumulair Diamond is composed of a Tribo-Electric synthetic media, which is a special blend of cotton/polymer micro-fibers that have the ability to “self-charge” when the two fibers, which are oppositely charged, are rubbed together. This creates a strong electric field that super-enhances the fibers’ ability to trap air particulates, producing a media with superior filtration capabilities. The micro-fibers are vertically needled into the material, which results in high permeability and low resistance to air flow.
Accumulair Diamond filters are offered in many standard filter sizes, but they can be custom made to fit virtually any filter system. These filters provide superior filtration for commercial and industrial use, such as in hospitals, general surgery, inpatient care, commercial buildings, and schools. They also work well as pre-filters for more expensive, higher efficiency filter systems like a laboratory, cleanroom, or pharmaceutical.
Accumulair Diamond filters generally need replacing every three months, but filter life depends on several factors. For example, air quality, rate of air flow, and types of pollutants can all have an impact on the filter life. After time, pollutants begin to accumulate around the electrostatic fibers, which lowers efficiency and eventually leads to clogging, so it is important to remember to keep the filter replaced at least every three months.
