The stringent regulations for cleanrooms cover a wide range of areas to meet the needs of research and production activities that require a special environment. One of the most essential elements of cleanrooms are the air filtration systems that ensure that the indoor air is free of all contaminants and unwanted particles. However, these air filter systems can also be used in other applications outside of cleanrooms – this will be discussed in this article.
What are air filter systems?
Your cleanroom’s filtration system is primarily what keeps it clean. Multiple filters, working in tandem with laminar air movement, remove the number of particles required to achieve cleanroom requirements. Laminar airflow, also known as unidirectional airflow, ensures that air moves in just one direction, reducing the chances of particles being tossed around and settling in your cleanroom.
Most cleanrooms drive air from the top to the bottom, ensuring that any contaminating particles are forced out and don’t have time to fall in areas they shouldn’t. The air is pushed through the filters by laminar air movement, which removes the particulates. Particles are trapped to the small, randomly distributed fibers within filters when air passes through them, and are therefore eliminated from the air entering your cleanroom.
How Can an Air Filtration System Improve the Overall Health in an Office or School?
Modular cleanrooms can meet the most demanding requirements, including air filtration systems. Although office environments typically do not need such sophisticated air purification, since the COVID pandemic, there has been an increasing demand for more robust air filtration to combat COVID.
The Hospi-Gard IsoClean is a self-contained, portable HEPA air filtration system can not only circulate clean air but also generate negative pressure or be used as a split system to achieve both. The IsoClean is a self-contained, portable high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtering system that can be carried from room to room and readily fits into small spaces.
The IsoClean’s flexibility and adaptability make it ideal for a wide range of applications, including hospitals, clinics, schools, nursing centers, waiting areas, gyms/recreation centers, restaurants, and general workplaces.
The device is extremely quiet and does not interfere with work or school teaching, so you can use it in any room. It works great in waiting rooms and is normally placed in the reception area or school hallway.
The Benefits of Air Filtration Systems
- Quiet operation: Although they are industrial-grade solutions, the air filtration systems are quiet and do not disturb the work going on in the room.
- Easy installation: The device is portable, so it does not need to be installed by a professional, only HEPA filters need to be replaced at regular intervals.
- Small size: The dimensions of the device allow it to perform the air purification task in any room
- Adjustable settings: Depending on the number of people in the room, the desired airflow intensity can be adjusted (3 levels available).
