AIR PURIFICATION SOLUTIONS FOR HOSPITALS, LABS AND HEALTHCARE CLINICS

COMPLETE AIR PURIFICATION SOLUTIONS FOR HOSPITALS, LABS AND HEALTHCARE CLINICS

AIR QUALITY – Key factor in creating a safe environment for patients and staff

The hospital and healthcare environments require high quality air management solutions to protect patients and staff against infections and occupational diseases. Our units offer complete air purification solutions against airborne microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, and fungal spores), gaseous contaminants, chemicals and odors.

THE SOLUTION: MULTI-STAGE AIR PURIFICATION SYSTEMS

The ideal combination of HEPA and customized chemical filters

BP PRO Series

Designed to handle high concentrations of chemicals, gases, odors, particles and biological contaminants, the BP Air Purifiers deliver superior air quality for healthcare facilities.

The BP Air Purifiers are available as standalone units (standard configuration) for general air purification. For virtually any application that requires removal of chemicals, vapors and particles directly at the source, a vast selection of flexible or articulated arms, hoods and ducting accessories capture any contaminants before they spread into the environment.

Although very effective against very fine particles, HEPA filters do not filter out gasses and odor molecules.Our refillable chemical filters use carefully formulated filtration media blends to remove odors, chemical vapors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

HOW OFTEN DO I HAVE TO CHANGE MY FILTERS?

HOW OFTEN DO I HAVE TO CHANGE MY FILTERS?

For filter life each application is completely different.It depends on the materials you are working with, and how often you are creating particulate.  For instance in Laser applications the depth you are cutting / engraving, the laser wattage, the type of material you are working with are all factors. Typical applications have the pre-filter being changed approximately every 1-3 months, HEPA filter 6-12 months, chemical filter 6-12 months.  This is just a guide as some end users last much longer and some also consume the filters much quicker.

WHAT IS A HEPA FILTER?

HEPA filters, by definition, remove at least 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 micrometers (µm) in diameter. Some manufacturers use HEPA material in their filters and claim that these are HEPA filters. Quatro Air certifies our filters as HEPA which means that they go through a vigorous testing procedure and meet medical standards for filtration.

HEPA filters are composed of a mat of randomly arranged fibres. The fibres are typically composed of fiberglass and possess diameters between 0.5 and 2.0 micron. Key factors affecting function are fibre diameter, filter thickness, and face velocity. The air space between HEPA filter fibres is much greater than 0.3 μm. The common assumption that a HEPA filter acts like a sieve where particles smaller than the largest opening can pass through is incorrect. Unlike membrane filters, where particles as wide as the largest opening or distance between fibres cannot pass in between them at all, HEPA filters are designed to target much smaller pollutants and particles. These particles are trapped (they stick to a fibre) through a combination of the following three mechanisms:

  1. Interception, where particles following a line of flow in the air stream come within one radius of a fibre and adhere to it.
  2. Impaction, where larger particles are unable to avoid fibres by following the curving contours of the air stream and are forced to embed in one of them directly; this effect increases with diminishing fibre separation and higher air flow velocity.
  3. Diffusion, an enhancing mechanism is a result of the collision with gas molecules by the smallest particles, especially those below 0.1 µm in diameter, which are thereby impeded and delayed in their path through the filter; this behaviour is similar to Brownian motion and raises the probability that a particle will be stopped by either of the two mechanisms above; it becomes dominant at lower air flow velocities

Diffusion predominates below the 0.1 μm diameter particle size. Impaction and interception predominate above 0.4 μm. In between, near the 0.3 μm MPPS, diffusion and interception predominate.

The filter resistance to flow is known as its pressure drop
