One of our best selling products gets even better with upgraded LED lighting.

Since we introduced it last year, our Criti-Clean Fan Powered Laminar Flow HEPA Filter Diffuser with built-in surgical grade lighting has proven to be one of the most popular — and fastest-selling – new products we’ve ever introduced. Why? Because it does the work of two basic operating room fixtures – a laminar flow diffuser and surgical lighting – all in one unit, maximizing valuable ceiling space!

Available on All of Our Laminar Flow HEPA Filter Diffusers

In the past, changing just one laminar flow diffuser HEPA filter in a clean room meant shutting down the entire system. Unfortunately, as a result, that also meant going through a painstaking decontamination process that could take up to two or three days to complete once you changed the filter.

Now AJ offers our Laminar Flow HEPA Filter Diffusers with 100% shut off dampers, which can eliminate the considerable time and effort involved in changing filters. This new convenience feature allows you to shut off one unit from the rest of your system, and change the filter without allowing any particulates to enter the room.

The Best Fan Filter Unit in the Industry Just Got Even Better!

Many people love our Criti-Clean Fan Filter Unit because of its industry-leading features and quality construction. But we know that easy day-to-day maintenance also means a lot to our customers. That’s why we’ve redesigned our popular Criti-Clean FFU to offer room-side access to not only its HEPA or ULPA filter, but also to the unit’s pre-filter as well.

The pre-filter in any FFU keeps debris and contaminants from entering the unit from the plenum side. But the pre-filters on the other FFUs on the market today are not accessible from the room side, which makes them extremely difficult and time-consuming to change – if they ever get changed at all.

Operating room design and construction just got easier.

After working with hospitals and medical centers — and their architects, engineers and contractors — for years, we’ve learned that they all face a common challenge: having enough space in operating room ceilings to meet the ever-changing, ever-growing standards and regulations for both airflow and lighting.

After hearing time and time again about these ceiling space issues, we thought of a great way to help — which may very well change the way future operating rooms are designed. We combined our popular Criti-Clean Fan Powered Laminar Flow HEPA Filter Diffuser with built-in surgical grade lighting. So now one compact unit does the work of two, maximizing valuable ceiling space!

Up to four times faster than conventional CO2 lasers.

At 400 inches per minute, we knew our first laser could cut fast. But with that workhorse running non-stop day in and day out, we went looking for something even faster. And now, after a thorough search, a significant rearranging of our manufacturing facility and weeks of installation and training, we’re proud to announce our newest addition is up and running — an Amada Fiber Optic Laser with the world’s fastest linear speed!

Needless to say, the new laser has given us a big boost in productivity (and our “old” Amada laser continues to run at full capacity). That means faster turnaround and shorter lead times for our customers than ever before.
