Shop our Online Catalog: Fans / Air Scrubbers

Many people have heard the term HEPA filtration, usually in reference to its use in hospitals, vehicles, and aircrafts. However, some may be unsure as to what exactly this type of filter is, what benefits it offers, and how it is used in residential and commercial capacities. High-efficiency particulate arrestance (HEPA) can also be known as high-efficiency particulate arresting or high-efficiency particulate air. Regardless of which term is used, they all refer to the same type of filter—one that meets the specific standards set by the United States Department of Energy, also known as the DOE. To meet these standards, the air filter must be capable of filtering 99.97% of particles that are sized larger than .3 microns from the air that passes through it.

Originally invented for laboratories to help prevent harmful, radioactive particles from transferring to outside of the laboratory, HEPA filtration has become a more common filter in homes and air scrubber systems. The benefits of this type of filter include decreased allergens, increased cardiovascular health for those who reside in the home, and decreased airborne particles and bacteria such as mold and mildew spores. These benefits are accomplished by the complex, dense fiberglass fibers that make up the filter. These fibers are so tightly woven that when air is pushed through them, they remove 99.97% of unwanted and hazardous particles from the air. Most of us hardly take time to think of the air we breathe and how it can affect our health, but when our home is affected by something dangerous, like mold, we begin to see that the air around us can greatly affect our wellness.

Professional remediation companies that restore homes after flooding or water damage often use this type of filter system because they understand the importance of guaranteeing clean air. Air scrubbers do exactly what their name suggests—they take in the air from a room and clean the air using the highly effective and regulated HEPA filtration system. There are a variety of these systems that are useful for commercial remediation companies as well as homeowners who need to scrub the air due to mold, mildew, flooding, or water damage.

Phoenix Guardian System

The Phoenix Guardian System was designed exclusively for the restoration industry. This HEPA filtration system can perform multiple air quality functions at the same time and traps virtually all removable particles from the air. In less than 60 seconds, the Phoenix Guardian System can clean the air of a 12 x 14 foot room. In order for air scrubbers like the Phoenix Guardian to be considered effective by the industry, they must be capable of performing four air changes per hour. This said, the Phoenix Guardian can successfully handle up to 21,000 cubic feet. With multiple intake and discharge options, a built-in manometer, and optional carbon-potassium permanganate filter, the Phoenix Guardian is one of the best systems available.

Phoenix Mini-Guardian System

A mini version of the original Phoenix Guardian System, this HEPA filtration system offers fully variable air flow in a compact size. When there are remediation projects with limited space, requiring limited air flow, the Phoenix Mini-Guardian is the system to use. With the ability to clean a 14 x 14 room air change in less than four minutes, this system removes almost all traces of hazardous particles from the air using a three-filter design. The Phoenix Mini Guardian is on wheels, making it extremely portable and lightweight.

Phoenix Guardian R500 Pro System

The Phoenix Guardian R500 Pro System is an air filtration device that is considered the most portable and compact HEPA filtration system available. In addition to being energy-efficient and durable, the Phoenix Guaradian R500 Pro System is also lightweight and stackable. This combination of strength, performance, and portability makes it ideal for any remediation project where power costs and space may be a concern. Weighing only 35 pounds, the Phoenix Guardian R500 is 14 inches tall and 22 x 24 inches wide and can operate both vertically and horizontally. This unique design allows for maximum capture zone so more particles can be removed from the air.

When it comes to finding the right HEPA Filtration unit, consider the size of the room, the power capacity of the home, and the space in which the system must fit. Knowing the air is safe to breathe provides unprecedented peace of mind for home and business owners.
