High Reliability Cooling with Standard Filter Sizes
Gore's Ambient Air Cooling Technology
Unlike closed loop systems such as AC and HEX, GORE Cooling Filters enable the use of direct air cooling by providing critical protection from water, corrosive salts and other airborne contaminants – allowing you to take full advantage of the natural thermal efficiency of ambient air.
Lighter Weight and Reduced Lead Times with Standard Sized GORE Cooling Filters
With a family of standard sized filter frames Gore complements its field-proven product offering of highly reliable and cost efficient ambient air cooling filter solutions.
Available in 4 different sizes these filters incorporate the highperformance Gore filtration media into a lightweight but strong ABS polymer frame, providing the most reliable protection possible for a variety of applications.
Cabinets fitted with GORE Cooling Filters easily pass the most stringent requirements, including IP55, global salt fog standards and 70 mph Wind-Driven Rain. The filters’ lightweight design combined with short lead times and easy integration into existing cabinets make them a cost efficient solution for state-of-the-art thermal management.

The Science Behind the Solution
Gore’s expanded PTFE membrane repels water and contaminants while allowing air to permeate through its microporous structure.
Gore’s Proprietary ePTFE Membrane Technology
Gore’s proprietary expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membrane technology is used in a wide variety of applications such as high performance fabrics, medical implants and high performance filter media. This microporous membrane allows cool, clean air to flow into the cabinet while repelling water and filtering out harmful contaminants such as corrosive salts, dust and dirt. GORE™ ePTFE membranes provide a minimum of 99 % particle filtration efficiency at the 0.3 μm level (1 cm/sec).
Our applications engineers will help you select the right filter for your application.
