Air Purifiers For Healthcare

Regardless of health focus, Hospital is a place where you go for treatment of a disease but it’s also a place where you can get infected by many airborne diseases. Hospital is a place which is already filled with people with poorer immune systems, and they’re already unhealthy. Every patient carries viral, fungal or bacterial infection or suffers from several contagious diseases which can adversely affect the health of the doctor, other patients and staff working there. The polluted air quality will only make them feel worse. Also, in hospital people are frequently coming and going. They might also get infected by the poorer Quality air and catch the infection.

Through Air Concept’s air purifier filtration system, patients will feel in good health with fast recovery. Upon the fast recovery and discharge, they appreciate that you are doing everything to provide clean, fresh air while removing indoor contaminants. And our commercial air purifiers provide dual filtration.

The filters that are must are Activated Carbon Filter, HEPA filter, with no ozone releasing. A HEPA filter and Activated Carbon filter does the job of completely making it completely safe for you and the patients.

Application

Doctor’s Clinic, Hospital, Dentist Clinic, Urgent Care Unit – ICU, Animal / Pet Care Hospital, General Waiting Area, Operation Theater, New Born Care Center and Maternity Ward

Common Space

A common space in a healthcare arrangement is most prone to allergic reactions on body due to the crowd and their impurities. It’s time we use Air Purifier to clear the air of the place where people meet and communicate in the most uncommon way.

Sources – Biological Contaminants

Effects – Allergic reactions, sneezing, watery eyes, coughing, shortness of breath, dizziness, lethargy and fever

Cleaning Products

You’re wrong if you think your healthcare space is completely clean and pollutant-free even after using the best of cleaning products. Air Purifier is a must need for a healthy hospital which promises healthcare facilities to masses.

What it contains –  Majorly alcohol, chlorine, ammonia, and petrol based solvents, VOCs

Sources –  Aerosol sprays, rug, upholstery cleaners, chlorine bleach, oven cleaners, and floor polishes

Effects – Chemicals cause irritation in the eyes or throat resulting in severe headaches. Dangerous chemicals contribute to allergies, asthma other respiratory diseases.

Air conditioner

Don’t just satisfy yourself with air conditioned room without purifying the air you’re actually breathing. Air Purifiers transforms your monotonous room into a rejuvenating atmosphere, thus protecting the indoor air.

What it carries –  Hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOCs), microscopic particles, and indoor dust that contaminates

Effects – Risk of suffering from bacterial infections and respiratory diseases

OVERLOADED OFFICE PEOPLE

We might be terribly wrong in our thinking that our healthcare breathing space is not polluted in the air just because of the fact that we don’t see any emitted pollutants. Install Air Purifier in office because most of the particles in the air are harmful and are not visible to the naked eye.

What it carries- higher – Higher Carbon Dioxide, Dust, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

Effects –Dizziness, nausea, headache, and loss of coordination

PANTRY AREA

One of our favorite places which let us enjoy our yummy food with family is often neglected. Installing an Air Purifier is necessary for a space like a pantry because it gets more polluted by disposals of the leftover food from our tiffin making the space stink.

What it carries –  Higher food remaining smell

Effects – Dizziness, nausea, headache, and loss of coordination

How To Ward Off Indoor Air Pollution At Home With Air Purifiers?

Air Purifiers contain various filters that almost negate the indoor pollutants and return the air quality to safer levels. While there are many air purification filters that are used in air purifiers, there are only some that are very relevant to air purification at home. While it’s good to have several filters, the filters that are must are Pre Filter, Activated Carbon Filter, HEPA filter.

A HEPA filter and Activated Carbon filter does the job of completely removing smoke and harmful gases from the air and reduce indoor air pollution.

There are a lot of contaminants like particles of dust, pet dander, and other allergens. They are captured by Pre-Filter. This helps in increasing the longevity of HEPA filters. Pre-filter removes the bigger particles and protects the HEPA filter from clogging. The main function of pre-filter is to reduce expenses that can result from clogging of HEPA filter.

The treatment of carbon with oxygen opens up multiple tiny pores on the surface of the carbon. The pores are so much in number that one pound of activated carbon provides 60-150 acres of surface area. It works on the concept of adsorption. The gas elements bond with the surface of solid. Activated carbon is the solid material that adsorbs air pollutants that are 60% of its weight. Once they are adsorbed by filters, the purified air leaves from the other side.

HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air. They are used in combination with an activated carbon filter and impart high efficiency of an air filter. It removes a wide range of airborne pollutants and also removes dust mites, pollen, mold and pet dander which are responsible for triggering problems like asthma. HEPA filter removes 99.9% of airborne contaminants which are of the size 0.01 microns. It is the most efficient for people suffering from allergies and asthma.
