When Pure Air Systems was established in 1985, there were a number of companies selling HEPA like and HEPA type air filtration systems. Many of these were used in the Asbestos Abatement projects that were prevalent at that time. In fact, Pure Air Systems was a spin-off from HEPA unit designed for abatement but never got into production.
The model 600H unit was a unit with a prefilter, carbon media filter and true commercial grade HEPA filter with a 1/3HP GE motor and Lau Blower. It was in one large section which was subsequently broken into two sections. This was the beginning of the PAS Line of HEPA systems.
As the popularity of the 600H unit grew, PAS introduced the new ECM motors from GE to make the HEPA system available as a stand alone unit as well as using variable speed motors that were then being introduced by all the HVAC companies.
By 1999 PAS had grown the line from one unit to seven different systems including the new portable unit. It has also moved into a new 9,000 square foot building. As of this date, 90% of the units are still built with parts made in the USA and it is now one of only 3 companies in the world that make this type of HEPA with the size and flexibility in size range and air flow control.
