There Is No Box

The continued advancement of technology in almost every discipline confirms the prognoses that technology is indeed doubling every two years.  This speed of iterations in design and development means that the term “thinking outside the box” is no longer valid and should be replaced with “there is no box.”

This new waive of thinking is actually more prevalent in the small, entrepreneurial business scene than with some of the larger, multi-national companies simple due to the size or these organizations. Small, 2 to 10 man companies can make decisions faster and in many cases are willing to go outside their normal resources to locate individuals who can assist them in enhancing or creating new product ideas and concepts to quickly take advantage of new technology break through that will help them compete in this ever-changing market place.

Pure Air Systems, started in 1985, with the concept that most individuals who suffered from allergies due to airborne allergens and particulate would benefit greatly using their commercial grade HEPA based, fan powered air filtration systems.  Previously, HEPA filter systems were only used in the electronics industry, medical applications, and governmental R & D. The average homeowner used fiberglass filters or electronic air cleaners, neither of which was very effective at removing much of the small, sub-micron particles and airborne allergens or pathogens that would create problems for allergy sufferers.  The introduction of HEPA filtration systems to the general public gave them  access to filtration technology here-to-for available only to a select set of companies and organizations.

In the mid 1990’s General Electric started to develop a series of motors that did not use copper winding material but rather magnets to drive the impeller shaft. These were called Electric Comutating Motors or ECM motors and they could operate on either 120 or 240 volt, 50Hz or 60 Hz. This meant they could be used anywhere in the world and more importantly they could operate at any speed…from 1% to 100% of power in 1% increments. Digital controls were then made available to control the motors  from any location. Even infrared remote capabilities were developed for the motors.

In 1998 Pure Air Systems began to experiment with these motors using them in their larger HEPA air filtration systems and in 1999 started the conversion process by using the new ECM motors in their 600HS series units and eventually putting them into their entire line of systems. From 1/3, 1/2, 3/4 and 1 HP applications, all of the PAS systems incorporated these new, more powerful, fully adaptable motors. Pure Air Systems was the first air filtration manufacturer to use the ECM motors and the sales of systems climbed considerably shortly thereafter.

Thinking outside the box and trying new ideas, technologies and concepts has been the hallmark of Pure Air Systems reputation. 28 years of providing the most advanced, powerful and reliable HEPA based, commercial grade air filtration systems on the market today. From 50 CFM to 2000 CFM, PAS products are designed for every application requiring the removal of sub-micron, airborne particulate.
