Specialist paper is used in many filtering applications and will become contaminated during the life of the unit. Examples include fuel filters from the Automotive and Transport sectors, High-Efficiency Processed Air (HEPA) filters from Research and Development and Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) filters from Process Engineering.
