Why China Is Buying Our Filtration Systems

I remember back in 2004 when my Father and I traveled to China. My Father liked to travel and asked me to tag along and I did. We landed at the then, new airport and took a bus to Beijing. Coming into downtown Beijing at night was like driving into Manhattan except all the signs were in Chinese. Otherwise it was strikingly similar with the exception of one thing, the smell of unburned hydrocarbons created by the massive use of coal for heating, cooking and manufacturing.  Along with the smell you could see a light haze in the air that was more transparent that opaque. The Chinese had a very bad pollution problem.

Fast forward to today and this issue of significant air pollution in China is now affecting other parts of the world as well. The massive clouds of dust, dirt and soot climb into the upper atmosphere and are carried thousands of miles by the prevailing winds. This soot then falls to earth in countries far removed from mainland China. In addition, the pollution creates significant health issues for the Chinese to the point where many people wear masks when they are outside.

A year ago, in March of 2013, an import/export company contacted Pure Air Systems, located in Indianapolis, IN, to discuss the possibility of exporting their portable HPS series units to China for by some of the wealthier individuals to remove the smoke and odor from their homes. The increase in the Chinese economy has created a large number of wealthy people who are willing to pay higher prices for products from the U.S. It seems that the Chinese don’t like things that are made in China either. While there is some significant technology development on-going in parts of China, most general duty products are poorly made with minimal repair options available.

A number of the portable units have been shipped to China for testing. One of the things that the Chinese people want to see on the units is the “Made in the USA” labels on the equipment and know that they are real. They also want to see the specifications on the components and know that 90% of them are fabricated anywhere but in China. One of the major hurdles with this venture is getting the units past customs and approved as an import item. The Chinese are very protective of their businesses and only allow certain items to be imported. Somewhat ironic.

Sometime in the next few months Pure Air Systems will have some definitive feedback from the exporter as to whether or not PAS will be successful in getting some product sold in China. Stay tuned for the results.

Your Health – Your Choice

From the TV to the newspapers, magazines, online media, Facebook, etc. etc., you are constantly besieged with warnings and comments about how to best take care of your body to ensure a long healthy life. We all know the dangers of cigarette smoke, lack of exercise and eating all the wrong  foods, but we never think much about the air we breathe.

In many parts of the US when the weather conditions are right, you might have an “ozone” alert and are warned to stay inside or minimize your outside activities and reduce your driving if at all possible. In the summer months these “nozone” periods may last a few days to weeks at a time. The levels of both ozone and suspended particles can be extremely high on these days and breathing in large amounts of these pollutants can even affect  healthy people.  While staying indoors can help….it is not the total solution.

You have heard the comments about indoor pollution being worse than outdoor pollution a hundred times from air filtration manufacturers and home builders alike. In essence, this is true. The tighter home and building construction designed to help conserve energy use for heating and cooling has also created a tighter living and working environment. It has also reduced the amount of fresh air circulating in the house or building.

For over 25 years Pure Air Systems has been making HEPA and Carbon based, fan powered, commercial grade air filtration systems that can really help you improve your indoor environment. The HS series of PAS filtration systems are designed so they can either be attached to the return air side of any HVAC system or used as stand-alone units. In either installation configuration the HEPA systems can not only filter all the air in your home 48 times a day but also introduce outside, filtered fresh air. This dual-style capability is unique to the PAS line of air filtration products.

HEPA filters are the only true way to consistently remove the small, sub-micron particles that can be harmful when ingested into your lungs. Over time even small concentrations of harmful airborne particles can create significant health issues. The longer we live in our increasingly polluted environment the more doctors and scientists are convinced environmental factors are major contributors to a wide range of chronic diseases.

Young children are especially susceptible to lung damage at early ages as their lungs are not fully developed until after 10 years of age. Maintaining a relatively clean environment for children and also older adults with reduced lung capacity is critical. With medical costs sky rocketing , preventative health practices are essential today for minimizing unnecessary medical expenses.

Pure Air Systems has systems installed in thousands of homes, offices, commercial operations, medical facilities and major pharmaceutical operations across the US and around the world.

The Life Of Riley

William Bendix was first introduced as the bumbling husband who was a riveter for an Aircraft company in California. It is somewhat of an oxymoron that the show was called the Life of Riley, which really refers to someone with money and who has few cares in the world. Riley’s life was just the opposite. Money was always an issue and he had challenges with all of his friends and especially his wife Babs. Riley’s famous line was, ” What a revoltin development this is!” You have to hand it to him, he was honest to a fault.

We all like our lives to be simple, with minimal challenges and drama and yet sometimes the simplest thing will interrupt our perfect world. Like going outside in the Spring time to enjoy the beautiful weather after a nasty winter only to find that the pollen and ragweed levels have gone through the roof. Or all that rain you had to help your drought stricken lawn after a hot dry summer has found its way into a small hole in the roof and now water is in the walls of your house and so is the mold.

Changes that affect our health seem to be more challenging than most other problems we incur. The people at Pure Air Systems understand these issues. With over 25 years of experience in dealing with hundreds of different airborne pollutant problems and installing  thousands of air filtration systems installed around the world, PAS has the answer to your allergy or air pollution problem.

Beginning in 1985, Pure Air Systems started manufacturing commercial grade, certified HEPA based air filtration systems for the residential, commercial and institutional markets. Today, PAS is considered one of the leaders in high performance HEPA and Carbon based, fan powered air filtration systems. Their system range in air volume from 50 CFM to 2000 CFM. The new, smaller portable unit can produce over 400 CFM from a unit only 13″ high and 21″ long. The larger systems can either be attached to an existing HVAC system or used as stand-alone units.

The combination of employing  HEPA filters, Carbon media and polyester ring-panel prefilters makes these systems some of the most effective in the world in removing and reducing high levels of sub-micron particulate, odors and gases. In addition, the motors used in the PAS systems are rated 120/240 volt, 50/60 Hz so they can be used in commercial applications and are completely adaptable to all the electrical systems used around the world.
