In addition, dust in the housing is the main reason for overheating and thus for possible, unstable operation. It is true that cleaning from time to time cannot be prevented, but the effort required for this can be reduced considerably. A simple and inexpensive solution are dust filters, which are placed in front of the sucking fan. Once these have been installed, it is no longer necessary to dust the entire interior with all its inaccessible corners and sensitive components, only the filters.
DEMCiflex offers a particularly easy to retrofit solution, which in this case fits over the upper air inlet of the Fractal Design R5 housing. The filter is simply placed on the opening from the outside of the housing and is held there magnetically. No screws or the like are therefore necessary, which means that there are no compatibility restrictions whatsoever. Since not all fan positions are magnetically attractive, the scope of delivery includes an additional frame that is glued to the back and on which the filter is held.
The filter itself consists of a very tightly woven and durable polyester fabric. This special material is also used in clinics, for example to keep operating theaters dust-free. At the same time, the mesh is well permeable to air and therefore only slightly hampers the airflow.
This effect naturally diminishes with increasing dust, which is why the filter should be removed and cleaned from time to time. Thanks to the special fastening method, removing the fan is quick and easy. The dust can then either be brushed off by hand, shaken off, washed off and, in the case of stubborn dirt, scraped off.
