Execution can mean a number of things as in the execution of a will or the execution of an individual, but the more important use of this word applies to those companies that can execute their business plan and perform above the level of their competition.

The speed of technology growth, change, innovation and adaption is mind-blowing. One only has to search the internet for all the open source forums to see how much new information is being exchanged on a daily basis to understand why it is so important that companies execute their programs extremely well with market consistency.

Execution also means adapting new technology, designs and manufacturing processes on a regular basis to keep  innovation in your execution plan as customers are more apt to purchase your product if it incorporates much of the latest technological advances that work in concert with their digital devices. Execution also means that the components of the device will function well allowing the product to perform as expected and within the operational promise of the manufacturer.

Pure Air Systems started manufacturing HEPA based fan powered air filtration devices since 1985 and continues to adapt new new technologies to enhance the execution of the product and ensure that its reputation for long-term operation with minimal down-time. The switch from induction motors to the new ECM, electrically commutated motors allowed PAS to use digital controllers, operated the systems based on pressure drop and provide 1% incremental fan speed control to better fit some of the newer volume sensitive applications. In addition, these variable speed drive motors can operate on 120 volt or 240 volt, 50/60 Hz electrical current which meant they could be used anywhere in the world.

In 2015 Pure Air Systems will introduce a new system designed specifically for the medical market. The APPAIS unit will be the first new product from Pure Air Systems since the HPS Portable unit was introduced in 2006. This FDA certified unit will be used as a prophylactic anywhere injections are done. This includes clinics, pharmacies, Doctor’s offices, hospitals, schools and even tattoo parlors.  Look for the new APPAIS in 2015  and see how the new unit incorporates a design requiring no tools for assembly, or operation.

Execution and Performance are the key words in the delivery of any product in this every changing world market place we live in. For more information go to our webs site at: https://www.pureairsystems.com  or call us on our toll-free number at : 800-869-8025.

Class II Medical Device

Eight years ago I designed a new portable HEPA filter unit, the last of 7 units I had developed since 1985. When Pure Air Systems was founded in 1985 it had one HEPA system to offer to its customers, the model 600H that eventually became the model 6ooHS. Bigger and more powerful systems were developed which formed a complementary line of commercial grade, certified, fan powered, HEPA based air filter sytems.

The last unit missing was a portable. The HPS 350 and 500 models were developed and completed in 2006 and rounded out the line of Pure Air Systems units. Unlike the larger PAS HEPA units, the HPS series was really designed to work in small areas, offices, laboratories, clinics, specialty applications and any area requiring the removal of sub-micron airborne particulate. Other applications for the unit also included use as a rental HEPA system for post-operative patient care, especially in bone marrow transplants and cancer patients undergoing chemo treatments. These patients have a much higher rate of bacterial infection due to destruction of their immune systems.

Enter the APPAIS System,  (Added Particulate Protection At Injection Site) unit. This is a modification of the HPS series of portable HEPA units. The main difference being the blower/motor assembly is turned 180 degrees and is now positioned to blow or push air through the HEPA unit rather than pull air through it. On the discharge section of the housing a fine mesh filter will be placed to keep any materials or fingers from puncturing the HEPA filter and the same style polyester prefilter is placed on the inlet side of the unit to take out the larger particles and keep the blower/motor and HEPA filter clean.

The controls are the same. The lighted on/off switch and four position speed switch are located on the right side of the unit, when looking at the front. The power cord with hospital grade male plug comes in on the left side of the unit. A top mounted handle was added to make carrying the unit easier and to double as a place to wind up the power cord when the unit is not in use.

The system is designed to be used to protect the patient when given an injection of any kind that is normally given in the upper arm area. The syringe is normally wrapped and protected prior to use. But when the syringe is needed the protective wrapping is removed, air is often drawn into the syringe to test it and then the syringe is placed into the serum container, filled to the appropriate levels then injected into the patients arm. This entire operation is often done in stores, pharmacies, clinics, Dr’s offices and hospitals. The air in the patient area is seldom clean and often much dirtier than even the patients own home. The possibility for infection is very high.

The APPAIS unit will blow HEPA filtered air over the patients arm, allow the medical technician to test fill the syringe in HEPA filtered air, thus making the entire procedure much less suspect for the development of an infection. These units are now going through FDA approval process.
