Pure Air Systems Made In The USA

There is a long history of issues with much of manufacturing moving out of the US. For the most part a lot of the reasons were high  labor costs and corporate greed. In many cases the Asian markets had developed more companies that did injection molding and machining processes that were considerably less expensive with the ability to change product parts almost over night.

For many items imported into the US there will be little change of manufacturing venue. Technology has afforded countries around the world to make products faster and cheaper than the US. Even countries like Cambodia, Vietnam, and Thailand are now major exporters to the U.S. And, many of the companies that own these operations are U.S. corporations.

Pure Air Systems has been making HEPA based, fan powered air filtration systems in the US since 1985. Everyone of these systems has a made in the USA label on it and all the components are also made in the USA. Knowing that one would think that customers would not consider purchasing any other filtration systems. But that is and was not the case. The PAS line of high end, commercial grade filtration systems is more expensive than the closest competitor but the units are designed to run for 15 to 20 years and they perform exactly as promised. Most of the competitors use cheaper, off shore components and are not made of steel or use the high end ECM variable speed drive motors.

After 32 years PAS has proven that if you make a great product, consistently and deliver what you promise, people and companies will continue to come back and order more. PAS now offers a line of 7 different HEPA systems ranging from the small portable HPS series to our 2000HS Plus units that can move up to 2000 CFM of HEPA filtered air.

Portable Car or Office HEPA In Development

In 1985 Pure Air Systems was founded to produce true HEPA filtration systems for the residential, commercial, institutional, medical and industrial markets. The first HEPA system, the model 600H, was 16″ x16″ x 34″ high and weighed 97 lbs. That unit is still made today under the new name 600HS.

Over the years PAS made larger units to handle larger areas and applications and also develoed a smaller portable HEPA unit that is 13″ x  13″ x 21″ long and weighs 30lbs. There are now two versions of that large, portable unit.

In 2018 PAS embarked on an R&D project to develop a small, in-car true HEPA unit that also included a combination prefilter/carbon media wrap. The round HEPA filter is rated at 99.99% at 0.3 microns and will remove particles as small as 0.12 microns. The carbon will remove odors and the prefilter removes the larger particles keeping the HEPA to remove only the sub-micron particulates.

The CAR HEPA prototype is 5.5″ square and 7″ long. It weighs approximately 3 lbs and uses a small, whisper quiet fan that runs off the 12 volt plug ( or USB) in your car. PAS is also in the process of developing a HEPA Holder so you can mount you HEPA in a stratgic location for best air filtration results.

While some very high end cars ( Tesla, Mercedes and some BMW) have high efficiency cabin air filtration, most vehicles have little or none. The CAR HEPA unit will significantly reduce the levels of harmful, sub-micron particulates. These particles include bacteria, airborne allergens and some viruses.

In order to speed up the development process PAS is utilizing 3D Modeling and 3D Printing to create the housing for the unit. The first iteration took just one week to develop and now some tweaking of the housing size is in the works. It may be that the CAR HEPA will be produced on 3D Printers and they could be individualized or personalized with your name and choice of colors.

Air Filtration

For those people who live and work in colder climates, the amount of time you spend indoors is proportionally more than those individuals who live in warmer climates. In addition colder air is much drier than warm moist air and as a result dust particles and other airborne contaminants tend to stay suspended in air for much longer periods of time.

As humans we inhale large quantities of air every time we take a breath. All of that air is filtered through our mucus membranes and lung linings and a large portion of the particulate are ( those particles larger than 20 microns ) air filtered out and most often projected out of the body when exhaling.

The smaller particles, those under 20 microns and especially those sub-micron particles, are trapped in the lung linings and not exhaled. They are absorbed by the body and then flushed out of the body. However, some of those particulate may be harmful to the body and these may be airborne viruses or bacteria or perhaps some other type of airborne contaminant. Collecting these particulate is what Pure Air Systems does with their HEPA based air filtration systems.

Started in 1985, Pure Air Systems created a line of Air Filters that specifically used true, commercial grade, scanned HEPA filters in all their systems. HEPA filters are the most effective mechanical device for removing 99.99% of all particles 0.3 microns or lager and approaching 99.98% at particles as small as 0.12 microns in size.

These HEPA systems are all fan powered and use the newer ECM variable speed drive motors so they can be used on 120/240 volt 50/60Hz electrical systems and used any where in the world.

The systems range in capacity from 50 CFM ( Cubic Foot Per Minute) up to 2,000 CFM. They can be used either attached to an existing ducted HVAC system in the by-pass configuration or as stand-alone units. These Air Filtration systems can be used in residential, commercial, institutional, medical and industrial applications.

Air Apparent

Pure Air Systems is now 32 years old and is one of the remaining few companies in North America that still makes high end, commercial grade, fan powered HEPA air filtration systems. These systems are designed to provide true HEPA filtered air in a wide variety of applications including but not limited to: commercial, industrial, institutional, medical and residential.

Pure Air Systems makes only one type of HEPA based air filtration system so the residential customer receives the same identical system as the hospital or laboratory. These systems are designed to last a long time and run for years with minimal maintenance other than changing any one of the three filters at regular intervals.

There are a number of models available designed to fit any application and with the ability to be either installed as stand-alone units or being attached to the return air side of any HVAC system; commercial or residential.

Pure Air Systems is now the Air Apparent in this industry as there is only one other company in Europe that makes fan powered HEPA air filtration systems with the ability to handle air flows from less than 50 CFM up to 2000 CFM in a small housing configuration. In addition, the PAS units utilize the newer ECM variable speed drive motors that are rated 120/240 volt 50/6 Hz motors so they can be used anywhere in the world.

Each system has a prefilter, carbon media filter and true HEPA  filter. The systems can be configured to have all Carbon media with one prefilter for applications where only odors and gases are present. Or, they can be configured with two prefilters for applications where high levels of large particulate are present.

Pure Air Systems Moving Into 2018

Our company has been around since 1985 and over the past 32 years we have seen some interesting changes in technology and the way we communicate with each other and the world. It is in the communication department that we see major changes.

PAS first had a URL in 1995. There were few ways to promote  yourself in those days and we thought being part of the Internet would be a great way to promote our products and company. Turns our we were correct.

Today, almost 80% of all our new customer leads come through our website. People can view our equipment and learn more about our products and systems and the applications for all of them and how they can be installed. But we need to go further.

Our current site is now over 6 years old and needs some fine tuning . It is not responsive so it is somewhat difficult to view on a mobile device. And since over 60% of our new views are from phones or tablets we need to change that. Also we will make the site more user friendly and eliminate some of the confusion about the differences between commercial systems and residential systems ( clue…there are none ).

We would also like to add a Chat app and be more progressive in using Facebook and Twitter. These social media platforms have become the best way to connect to everyone anywhere at anytime.

Look for a major face-lift on our site coming in February of 2018. We think you will like it a lot. If you would like more information on the complete line of HEPA based air filtration systems please go to our website at: http://www.pureairsystems.com or call us on our toll-free number at: 800-869-8025.

Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse

By now we all know that the Zombie Apocalypse was created through a virus developed by some unknown group. You also know by watching the documentary, Walking Dead, that the only way to put down a Zombie for good is to shoot or stab them or remove their head. So if you want to be a Zombie killer and not a member of the walking dead, then you need to pay attention to the rest of this blog. It may save your life!

Since we now know that an airborne virus is the method by which we become infected, the the obvious solution is to not breath in any contaminated air. Hard to do when the infected are now everywhere. But there is a solution. HEPA air filtration.

Started in 1985, Pure Air Systems introduced a commercial grade, fan powered HEPA air filtration system for use in homes, hospitals, schools, office buildings and other commercial facilities. Had all of these potential customers heeded our warning and installed one of our 7 different HEPA filtration models we may have to be writing about this issue today.

The HEPA systems handle up to 2,000 cubic feet of air per minute and can provide a surgery suite/clean room environment in any structure, even your home where you can hide comfortably from the Zombies.

HEPA filters are the only filtration method of significantly removing or reducing the levels of airborne contaminants at an efficiency of 99.99% at 0.3 microns and larger. They are even effective down to 0.12 microns and smaller ( virus size ) and become more efficient over time. …You are already thinking you need one aren’t you?

So, making the decision to buy one of our HEPA filtration systems is a “no brainer” if you get my drift.

HEPA Filtration Systems As Air Booster

Using HEPA filtration systems as air moving boosters is fairly common and in most cases necessary. If you have a multiple number of pick up points from which you want to remove contaminated air you need to understand the concept of air flow resistance or pressure drop.

When moving air through any type of duct system you have to take into consideration the resistance of air flow through the duct especially if it is flexible duct and you have some 45 degree and 90 degree bends. Air flow resistance is measured in inches and the higher the number the greater the resistance the larger the horsepower has to be on the motor/blower system that is moving that air from one point to another.

If you have any type of air filtration device in the air flow system that being used to remove the contaminants you also have to take into account the static pressure loss across that filter as well. If it is a HEPA filter you have a significant pressure drop which needs to be added into the total line loss when designing the blower/motor system.

Pure Air Systems has been making fan powered HEPA based air filtration systems since 1985. They use variable speed drive ECM motors on all their systems that adjust automatically by speeding up as the pressure drop across the HEPA filter increases.

Since Pure Air Systems makes HEPA filtration systems that are fan powered they can be used as boosters for moving air through an entire ducted system to maintain the proper carrying velocities through the ductwork even as the HEPA filters load up.

It takes a lot of power to move air through ductwork and a filter so using the PAS systems makes sense. The models range from 600 CFM to 2000 CFM air flow capability using 1/3, 3/4 or 1 HP ECM motors. PAS is one of the few companies in the world that make high end, fan powered, commercial grade HEPA air filtration systems that can be used as stand-alone systems or in conjunction with a ducted HVAC system or commercial air handlers.
