Ambient Air Cleaners
1. What is it?

Ambient Air Cleaners involve the use of large “Washable, Cleanable or Replaceable Media” filters. These units both filter and re-circulate the air back into the work place. 

Installation Configurations: 

  • Free Hanging “Negative Pressure”
  • “Race Track”
  • "Cross Dilution" 

Depending upon the designed air pattern, these systems "scrub" the ambient air of contaminants, and the result is a dramatic reduction of airborne pollution. These systems are best used in combination with source-collection equipment.

3. Will it Make my Workplace Safer?

Yes, but only when systems are configured, installed, and maintained for the correct use application. The filter selection is paramount to ensuring the reliability, effectiveness, and safety of the unit you use.

6. What Criteria to Consider

Some important points to consider when purchasing:

  • What is the volume of the room you want to clean? 
    • e.g. cubic dimension: L'xW'xH'
  • How many times would you like to change the air in your room? 
    • e.g. Welding=8 AC/H
  • How much contaminant do I generate? 
    • e.g. dust, smoke, fume
  • Where am I going to mount these units?
  • Can I use these units to create a negative pressure in my work area?
  • Do I want "throw away", "washable", "cleanable" or "self cleaning" filters?
7. Preventing the Spread of Airborne Fumes and Chemicals

Industrial workers are exposed to a variety of health hazards every day. As a result, these workers risk the possibility of becoming sick, ill, and in some cases, permanently disabled. According to a WHO estimate (WHO, 2000), unintentional poisonings led to 300,000 deaths in the year 2000. 

It's our mission to diminish that figure, but it only works if the correct equipment is used, and configured correctly. Our team works to make the logistics of those questions as straightforward and coherent as possible, and as such, will work with you to provide you with the best extraction system that fits your worker's needs. This includes everything from accessibility and usability to longevity and reliability.
