What is an Air Scrubber?
Though invisible, air quality has far-reaching impacts on the health and wellbeing of you and those around you. A commercial air scrubber is a portable machine that improves the quality of air inside a building. Using a series of decontaminating filters, an air scrubber sucks in contaminated air and removes dust, pollen, mold, harmful chemicals and other damaging particles. Then, it releases this freshly clean air back into the room.
Thanks to the HEPA filters inside our commercial air scrubbers, these machines can effectively clean the air, trapping particles as small as .3 microns in size. In addition to reducing airborne contaminants, air scrubbers also target the root of unpleasant odors. Air fresheners and deodorizers simply mask the issues. A commercial air scrubber cleans the air, minimizing the effects of lingering odors and tackling dirt and dust so that you can enjoy fresh, clean air.
By attaching to your HVAC system, you provide a front line defense against pollutants. In fact, air scrubbers can prolong the life of an HVAC system. Because the air scrubber filters stop dirt and other particles, the HVAC system can continue to run efficiently, without being bogged down by unwanted contaminants.
Air Scrubber vs. Air Purifier
An air purifier and air scrubber both have the same goal—remove harmful particles and clean the air. But, depending on the situation, one may be more suitable than the other.
An air purifier cleans the air by producing ozone gas to destroy germs and microbes in the air. However, this can do more harm than good. According to the EPA, ozone is linked to increased respiratory issues for those with asthma. Air purifiers that don’t use ozone often rely on MERV filters. These are efficient at cleaning the air but do require expensive replacements.
On the other hand, air scrubbers use a series of carbon filters to pull odors and bacteria out of the air and trap them. The HEPA filters in a commercial air scrubber are more cost-effective than MERV filters. Additionally, air scrubbers can release ions that connect to particles on surfaces in the home or building. In other words, they clean both the air and surfaces. An air purifier does not have this capability.
Air Scrubber vs. Negative Air Machine
Air scrubber and negative air machines are often used interchangeably. The key difference between negative air machines and air scrubbers is the build and portability.
A negative air machine is a precursor to the air scrubber. As such, it does not contain some of the features that modern air scrubbers do. Negative air machines are typically larger and bulkier than air scrubbers. The horizontal machine sucks in and purifies the air and requires multiple people to lift and carry between locations.
A commercial air scrubber serves the same purpose as the negative air machine but offers portability. Unlike negative air machines, air scrubbers can be rolled to fit into small spaces and moved around a building or construction site with ease. Commercial air scrubbers utilize backward-curved blowers and special high-speed motors to maintain a higher airflow than the lower speed motors of negative air machines.
Portable Air Scrubber Applications
So what is an air scrubber used for? Air scrubbers are useful in several situations but are most commonly used in hospitals, new construction, and water or fire damage scenes. The HEPA filtration system included in the units we carry helps cleanse the air by removing dirt particles and unwanted odors. This helps to relieve allergy, asthma, sinus problems, mold spores, pathogens, and chemical irritations.
Air Scrubbers for Medical Settings
In a hospital or healthcare center, the goal of healthy staff and patients is a top priority. If poor quality air circulates through the building, contaminants have free reign through the air. Arming an HVAC system with an air scrubber tackles air quality issues, including germs and microbes. With the help of an industrial air scrubber, patients with weak or compromised immune systems can breathe clean, high-quality air. Additionally, the chance of contaminants recirculating is diminished.
Air Scrubbers for Construction Sites
When renovating a building or constructing a new space, the construction site is filled with dust and chemicals circulating in the air. A construction air scrubber traps these particulates to allow workers to complete the job under healthy air conditions.
Other air scrubbers applications include in salons where fumes from products fill the air and in hazardous air conditions such as when mold or asbestos is discovered.
Renting vs. Buying an Air Scrubber
Due to the efficient technology and easy portability of an air scrubber, the machine has many applications. If the need arises, you may be debating between renting and buying an air scrubber. For a short term project, renting an air scrubber is the ideal way to go. The portability of an air scrubber means you can move it to the areas you need most. If you need clean air in a space year-round, purchasing an air scrubber makes for a worthwhile investment. See our purchase options below!
