- 1. Opportunities in theRental MarketforPortable Air Scrubbers
& Negative Air Machines
3. Why use Scrubber Technology?
- Air Scrubbers capture potentially harmful or irritating dust,
odors, spores and other contaminants from the air during the
- Air scrubbers are essential when working in areas where
occupants cannot leave (hospitals, healthcare, office
4. Occupied structures require the use of air scrubbers:
- Apartments other units are occupied.
- Homes residents stay during renovationwork.
- Office Buildings business must continue.
- Schools surrounding classrooms.
- Hotels guests in surrounding rooms.
5. Typical Applications for PAS units.
- Bio-Hazards (death scene)
- Sewer Back-up (black water)
6. Typical Applications contd
- Tile installation & removal
- Carpet removal & installation
7. How do we achieve this?
- Mechanical Capture of Particulates
- Adsorption of Vapors & Gases
9. 10. # of Airborne Particles
- 99% of all airborne particles are smaller than 1 micron in
- Smaller than 1 micron are considered Lung Damaging as they are
respirable (small enough to penetrate the nose and upper
respiratory system and deep into the lungs).
11. Particulate Pre-filters
- Coarse particulate pre-filters capture particles 50-100 micron
- Pleated particulate 2 filters capture visible particles (>
12. Microscopic Particles Need H.E.P.A.Filtration (High
Efficiency Particulate Air) 13. HEPA Filters
- 99.97% efficient @ 0.3 micron size.
- Abatement Technologies HEPA filters individually tested and
- Most efficient filter available.
14. What is Carbon or Activated Charcoal?
- High quality carbon is manufactured from coconut shells.
- Traps and holds odors inside granular surfaces.
- Safe workplace environment, unlike working in high levels of
15. Using a Portable Air Scrubber 3 ways:
16. Recirculation Mode
- Unit located inside and exhausts inside the work
- Cleans air by pulling particulates and odors through
- Target 5+ Air Changes per Hour (ACH) for optimum cleaning.
17. Negative Pressure(unit inside containment)
- Unit located inside the work environment and ducted to outside
the work area.
- Pulls contaminants into unit and exhausts clean air to another
- Creates negative pressure inside work area.
- Keeps contaminates inside workspace.
18. Negative Pressure Diagram 19. Positive Pressure
- Unit is located outside of work space & air is fed into
- Uses outside air to supply clean air to work space
20. To Determine How ManyAir Changes Per Hour are Needed
- ACH =Air Changes per Hour
- CFM = Cubic Feet per Minute
- Room Air Volume = Length x Width x Height
- ACH=machine cfm x 60 min/hour
- Room Air Volume (length x width x height)
21. Example ACH=800 cubic feet/minx60 min/hr 30 x 40 x 8
ACH=48,000 cubic feet/hr=5 ACH 9,600cubic feet of space 22. Sizing
Your Air Scrubber Cubic Feet of work space x ACH / 60 min Example:
1800 sq. ft. structure with 9 ft tall ceilings.5 ACH needed. 16,200
cubic ft x 5 / 60 = 1350 cfm unit 23. Are PAS & Neg Air
Machines the same? Yes & No
- -Negative pressure & recirculation mode.
- Multiple stage pre-filtering (3-4 stages)
- Low amperage requirements
- Daisy chain feature available on most units
One-person transport! 24. What is a Negative Air Machine?
- Designed for asbestos and lead abatement.
- Can recirculate air or create negative pressure.
H1990HP 25. Typical Asbestos Job
- Unit inside the containment area.
- Ducted to outside to create negative pressure.
- Runs continuously to assure no asbestos particles leave the
26. Portable Air Scrubbers
- Used in multiple industries
