The differences between the east and west coast are significant. The only similarity is the comparison between LA/SF and New York City. All three of these cities are considered the ultimate destinations and take pride in being the more avant garde of all the cities in the US. New technologies and innovation seem to come more from the West coast than the east coast, however, the Midwest continues to be the major supplier of manufactured goods and  machinery.

This differences are not only based on the company styles and culture but the differences in the demographics as well. The younger, under 45 crowd tends to be the major population base in many parts of California, Oregon and Washington. Although places like Austin, Texas also revel in commanding the young professionals and entrepreneurs. New York has a broad mixture but still a large percentage of those in the greater New York City area are the new “whatever letter they call them” generation. In either coast, the manufacturing of new products seems to be usurped by the development of digital software, apps and enterprise systems. While many of these products have proven to be valuable to our marketing and social media infrastructure, they don’t come close in monetary or job creation like hard technologies.

Pure Air Systems has been manufacturing certified, commercial grade HEPA air filtration systems since 1985. Their roots are in the Midwest where manufacturing had and still has its base. The ability to develop these high end units using state-of-the-art ECM motors and electrical components was made easier by being closer to the geographical center of  manufacturing in the US. It is interesting to note, however, that a large majority of the PAS units are shipped to commercial and residential customers alike in the two coastal areas.

In addition, PAS ships a substantial number of units overseas to all continents where they are mostly used in the commercial, institutional and medical markets. Since the blower/motor systems are rated 120/240 volt 50/60 Hz, the units can be utilized anywhere in the world.

The HEPA units are capable of producing up to 2000 CFM of air through certified, scanned HEPA filters that have an initial efficiency of 99.99% at 0.3 microns. All of the PAS units also incorporate granular activated carbon filters for the reduction and/or removal of gaseous pollutants. In this way the systems are capable of being used in applications where airborne particulates are present along with odors or gases. Since these units use powerful motors ( up to 1 HP ) they can be used to move air through duct work and are often used to either make a room positive or negative depending upon the requirements.

Today PAS is looking at building a new system specifically designed for the medical market and this system will be fabricated in the east coast area. This is a departure from its Midwest roots but a necessary part of its growth going forward. More information on this new product will be in future blogs on this site.
