No Filter Hot Spots
When working in any type of lab, dust and other unwanted particles in the air are inescapable problems. Opening a door to walk in, a window for air, or any kind of ventilation is going to bring in unwanted dust and particles and ruin the equipment and experiments. Some activities cause more than others, but more often than not controlling that dust is a key need of any type of lab. It seems like a simple fix to blow in clean air, however having clean air readily available all the time is no easy task.
The Air Cleaning BlowerTM (ACB) was developed specifically to remove dust, pollen and other particles from the air in dusty environments while eliminating the need for constant maintenance due to clogging filters. After removing most kinds of plant and metal processing dusts, without using any filter elements or media, the ACBs blows out clean air to your application, exactly what is needed in this case.
How the ACB Works:
The Air Cleaning BlowerTM works by pulling dirty air into its housing like any other fan would. The blower wheel inside its housing then spins the air around in a novel, multi-patented way, using centrifugal force to separate the dusts and other particles from the air. The ACB then ejects the debris and blows it through a shoot and back into the place where it came from, which ensures there are no filter hot spots. The clean air then blows out the other side where you need it, in your clean room. The Air-Cleaning BlowerTM accomplishes all this without any type of filter elements or media that need replacement or other maintenance.
Other filters and air purifiers that use filter elements often clog quickly and expensively. This clogging decreases the effectiveness of the fan, increases the amount of energy consumption and requires constant maintenance and repair. In contrast, because the ACB has no filter media to clog, replace or maintain, you can be sure you generate constant air flow, air pressure and steady energy consumption for ventilating, pressurizing or feeding air compressors and other equipment.
Another key feature is that the ACBs can remove rain, mist and snow from the air, helping the air stay dryer and reducing the load on any air conditioning, refrigeration or dehumidifying equipment. In addition, because there is no filter media catching that rain or snow there is nothing that will become wet or freeze up and prevent the air from passing through.
Our ACBs were tested independently at a nationally-recognized filter-testing laboratory to prove their effectiveness. The testing found that they remove up to 98%+ of the mass of dust and other particles in the air. The laboratory results show that they remove virtually all particles larger than 10 microns and almost half of the particles down to 0.3 microns in the air. The smallest particles most people can see are about 50 microns. This level of effectiveness assures that in most cases it would take months for enough dust to accumulate to create an insulating blanket that could overheat a motor or an electric box.
Originally developed to work in harsh environments such as steel, mining and fertilizer plants, the Air Cleaning BlowerTM can help no matter what kind of laboratory you operate. Our ACBs are so effective that they are being used today by the US Military in the Middle East to keep air conditioners cooling, even in sandstorms.
Potential applications, with no filter hot spots:
Ventilating Clean Air into the Lab
Removing dusts and germs from the air
Preventing mist and humidity from damaging equipment
