25 Years Of Environmental Service

Started in 1985, Pure Air Systems has been providing commercial grade, certified HEPA and Carbon based air filtration systems to the residential, commercial, institutional, governmental and industrial markets for 25 years. Over those years PAS has always subscribed to building the best, most effective high performance HEPA systems for their customers. And some of the customers and applications have been interesting to say the least.

While the HEPA and Carbon systems are used in hundreds of applications there are a few that are somewhat unique. For example, there is a police station in a major city in the southern US that happens to have a lot of marijuana confiscated due to the high percentage of dealers in the area. The pot is placed in the evidence room which is locked and secured. Evidently over time the odor from the marijuana permeates through the evidence room and the employees were having some challenges with concentration ( if you know what I mean).

Pure Air Systems was contacted and asked if we could assist them in this odor problem. We suggested one or our larger, 2000 CFM all carbon units to help in removing a high percentage of the pot odor. The system was installed and the odor issue was resolved. To this day they continue to order replacement carbon for the system. Obviously business is still good!

One of our residential customers was a big game hunter and would have a number of his kills stuffed and mounted. These were the complete animal not just the head. These trophies would be placed in a wall area behind glass for viewing. The enclosure was not completely sealed so dust and dirt would get into the trophy case and get on everything. Keeping the enclosure clean was difficult and tedious, so he contacted us and asked if we could provide him with a HEPA filtration unit and system design to keep his trophy cases somewhat clean room clean.

PAS used two of the small 600 CFM HEPA units and designed a ducting system to attach them to back of the trophy cases and circulate HEPA filtered air through the cases 24 hours a day. This resolved his dust on the Bear problem and he was a happy camper!

The HEPA systems from PAS are designed to be used either attached to HVAC systems or as stand alone units capable of being used in almost any application. One of our customers wanted to use our HEPA systems in a mobile hospital unit. This unit was used over seas and designed to go into the back country to provide medical attention to people who lived in isolated areas. One of the larger HEPA systems was installed and the mobile hospital had a mobile surgery room. The PAS systems use a 120/240 volt 50/60 Hz ECM motor which can work with any of the electrical power systems anywhere in the world.

First Rate HEPA Systems For Third World Countries

Health care is currently a hotly debated issue in the U.S. Our health care system is considered one of  the best in the world and leads the world in developing new drugs, surgery procedures and medical equipment. The surgery rooms are state-of-the-art and incorporate the best HEPA filtration systems to minimize the possibility of infection during surgery.

In the developing countries and third world countries, especially those in Africa, health care is not readily available to much of the population and what is available is sometimes rudimentary at best.

One of the primary killers in any U.S. hospital is infection, specifically post operative infection. This is why the surgery suites and operating rooms are kept under 100% Hepa filtered positive pressure air. This helps to keep any bacteria or airborne pathogen from getting into the operating room when the patient’s cavity area is exposed.

In most third world countries there is little money available for hospitals and high-tech surgery rooms. Even worse, there is little to no air filtration available for these facilities. Infection is one of the main challenges in these facilities.

Pure Air Systems has been designing and manufacturing commercial grade HEPA systems since 1985 and is considered one of the leaders in high volume, digitally controlled HEPA and Carbon based systems.

PAS uses the new ECM variable speed 120/240 volt, 50/60 Hz motors in all of its larger units. These motors are designed to operate anywhere in the world. Since most countries, other than the US, use 220 volt and 50 HZ electrical current the PAS line of HEPA systems are perfectly suited for these locations.

The African continent is no different. Their hospitals use  220 volt 50 HZ for their electrical power. The PAS line of HEPA systems have a air flow range from 600 CFM to 2000 CFM and with the use of the digitally controlled motors these volumes can be adjusted to any flow for any requirement.

Since the PAS units are fan powered they can be used as stand-alone systems or used in conjunction with a ducted heating/cooling system. In many of the African hospitals they are used as stand-alone units usually located inside or adjacent to the surgery room and then designed to filter all the air in the room through the HEPA system with a small amount of air introduced through the unit from outside the room to ensure the surgery suit is not only 100% filtered but also under positive pressure.

The cost of using even the largest of the PAS HEPA systems is 1/100th the cost of having to build an entire HEPA  based ventilation system for these surgery suites. More importantly, the PAS units are small enough (weighing 200 lbs) that they can be used even in remote, temporary facilities or in mobile hospitals.
