We've been finding solutions to your industrial and now residential filter needs for nearly 20 years.
At Sanders, Inc., we have specialized in designing and developing unique filter applications for nearly 20 years. I was previously a clinical psychologist until 1982. in 1985 I began my career in the filtration industry. In 1988, I began Sanders International Corporation after developing a new unique Manufacturing Process for Air Filters using Ultrasonic Welding. In 2001, I founded Sanders Inc. This company has specialized in not only vertical transportation filters, pre-filter wraps, and blow out bags, but we also created the Sanders Containment Filter. This company was designed to be a company that would solve the issues with air filtration at the time. At the beginning, much of this had to do with filtering carbon out of the air which was created from generators used to power elevators, however as our knowledge about filtration evolved, as did our filters. We developed a material (filter media) that revolutionized the way elevator companies looked at filtration.
While in the industry, I began to realize the amount of particles, many of which can be harmful, we breathe in every day just in our homes and everyday businesses we visit. This lead me to the realization that commercial and residential air filters for heating and cooling systems were barely scratching the surface of filtering out harmful particles, many of which were submicron. Knowing this, I set out to find a way to fix that, for me and my family to breathe the cleanest air possible in our home and the businesses we frequent, and for others to have to opportunity to do the same.
This became personal for me when my daughter, who was diagnosed with a chronic gastrointestinal disease, had many instances when she went into a hospital to receive treatment, she came home with pneumonia or the chicken pox, conditions completely unrelated to her illness. When going to the hospital or doctors office, or many times just going shopping becomes more dangerous than the treatment the hospital provides, that is a complex situation. However, it is the situation that many immune compromised, oncology patients, and patients dealing with chronic illnesses face daily. We are a small, family run, made in the USA company. I have spent the past 20 years dedicated to changing the way people think about filtration and how that could possibly relate to making our indoor air safer for everyone. This became my passion project, and at 73 years old, I continue to work all day, every day, to make sure people know that there is now a filter that is able to remove submicron particles - at a 99.95% minimum efficiency.
In the past 10 years, we have developed and introduced a new line of high-efficiency containment filters to contain and remove permanently suspended submicron particulates in facilities and residences. Importantly, the filter works in your standard HVAC system and requires NO modification to your current HVAC system. These sub-micron particles can include pathogens that are among the causes of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI’s) and also contribute to pandemics such as Influenza and COVID-19. The containment system is ideal for diverse applications including hospitals, nursing homes, schools, food processing, bottling companies, shopping markets, and hotels; anywhere clean air is critical. Part of our motivation to pioneer this system is to assist in the reduction of ever present hospital acquired infections.
We appreciate all customers who come to us for their filtration needs. We believe tenacity is our greatest quality and we are passionate about developing and designing filters to solve any unique filtration application you might have. It is, after all, what we do – and do well – for going on 20 years.
