Introducing…Criti-Clean Ultra FFUs with Ultraviolet-C Radiation or Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization to Neutralize and Remove Airborne Pathogens.
We’re proud to introduce two new options to our industry-leading Criti-Clean Ultra HEPA filtration units in order to more effectively combat airborne viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, as well as bacteria, mold and other pathogens. The new built-in modules include Ultraviolet-C (UV-C) Radiation and Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization.
Our Criti-Clean Ultra fan-powered laminar flow HEPA filter diffuser provides a steady stream of purified air into a room. It is available as a traditional ceiling-mounted unit, as well as a completely portable model that comes on wheels and plugs into a standard wall outlet.
“With the need for cleaner, safer indoor air to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we’re proud to offer effective, easy-to-implement solutions for all types of buildings,” said Rob Haake, president of AJ Manufacturing. “By adding sterilization technologies to our already proven HEPA filtration units, we’ve added a second line of defense that can help schools and businesses reopen safely.”
The new UV-C Radiation module assists in sterilizing particulates in the air stream and also disinfects the HEPA filter. When microorganisms are exposed to UV-C, the light’s radiation penetrates their cell walls and disrupts the structure of their DNA to neutralize them.
The Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization module produces a stream of negative and positive ions, which attach themselves to microorganisms and render them inactive by depriving them of hydrogen. The resulting larger clusters of particles are also more easily trapped in the HEPA filter.
All Criti-Clean Ultra units include a standard HEPA filter that traps 99.99% of particles as small as .3 micron. They can also be upgraded to ULPA filters (99.9995% at .12 micron).
In addition to standard air supply models that push clean air into a room, both the ceiling-mounted and portable Criti-Clean Ultra are also available as reverse-flow units for creating patient isolation areas. These units draw potentially contaminated air in, then exhaust clean air out of the room through ductwork.
