Carrier’s OptiClean™ portable negative air machine was originally created to help hospitals treat patients with COVID-19. Now, the technology is being used in various indoor environments like classrooms, waiting rooms, conference rooms and more to clean and remove air contaminated by the virus.
Here are 3 reasons to consider using this technology for your commercial building:
- The machine uses high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters and flexible ducting to exhaust the filtered air.
- The machine creates negative pressure so that when the room is opened, air is pulled into the room from the outside instead of letting potentially contaminated air out of the room.
- For spaces where negative pressure is not necessary, the machine can act as an air “scrubber.”
In healthcare, facilities managers must continue to expand their capacity to treat patients in places that normally do not have the same air handling capabilities as most hospital rooms. Use of supplemental air cleaning offers a quick plug in solution versus retrofit of the building’s Air Handling systems. Solutions such as this are required to protect surrounding spaces and help slow the spread of COVID-19.
