For years, buying the manufacturer’s OEM AER filters was the only logical solution as they were the highest quality parts. This was the was case for all the most popular AER brands; Medivators AER Filters, Cantel AER Filters, ASP AER Filters, Johnson & Johnson AER Filters, Olympus AER Filters, Custom Ultrasonics AER Filters, Steris AER Filters.

And while OEM quality has not suffered, today other options exist. Manufacturer compatible AER filters are available from reputable sources you can trust at highly discounted prices. The savings available is instrumental to running medical practices efficiently especially when the quality of the AER replacement and maintenance parts themselves meets or exceeds the manufacturer’s own high quality water filters.

The manufacturing processes of AER filters have evolved considerably over the years. Automation and technology advances in the manufacturing processes play a large role in this. For instance, the quality of the side seam welding has improved dramatically with new equipment that has helped these competing AER filter manufacturers meet or exceed the OEM manufacturer’s own strict guidelines. The glues and additives that used to be used and were a source of common issues have been replaced with ultrasonic thermal welding which completely ensured the integrity of the seams.

All this to say that if you haven’t considered aftermarket OEM compatible AER Filters as the solution for your medical practice’s consumable maintenance items you may want to consider it.
