Most industrial or commercial businesses that regularly have fume or gas type pollutants floating around usually have air cleaners in place that remove these pollutants to prevent health hazards. Some of the filtration systems out there, however, aren’t the best value and often require a lot of filter changes or additional units (which costs more money) to adequately clean the air.
Unfortunately, a lot of business owners either aren’t aware that their filtration systems aren’t up to par, or just deal with the extra expense or not getting the best air purification for their money. The problem with those situations is that your business, your employees and your bottom line are probably all suffering unnecessarily because of one decision that could have been better. That why i recommend talking to the industrial experts in air ventilation systems Clean Air Environmental.
The decision we’re referring to is the quality of the air cleaner system you purchased, and specifically the quality and amount of carbon in the unit. Now, to be fair, if you don’t have enough units or enough total output for the cubic feet in the area to get at least 3 complete air changes per hour, you’re going to have sub-standard air filtration, employee complaints, health issues, regardless of how good the carbon is. But when you compare the same number of units of lesser quality to those of higher quality, with better carbon, the difference in air quality, hazards, and costs become very clear.
Many industrial units on the market today do not have the best carbon with the strongest activation or the best granule size with high surface area. A lot of lower quality commercial units will have filters with crushed carbon or zeolite, which doesn’t give you as much surface area as granular carbon. Lower strength activation and less surface area means it will take more of that carbon to remove pollutants, more money spent on more units and more expensive filter replacements because the carbon doesn’t absorb as much as it should. Gee, thanks!
Buying a commercial air scrubber (portable units or a system) with the very best carbon and a strong output is essential to proper air cleaning in commercial or hazardous industrial situations. A better unit with better carbon means that unit will clean the air better and faster, plain and simple. And when it comes to removing fumes, odors, or chemical gases, the more carbon you have in the filter(s), the better. This is mainly because there’s more carbon to become saturated or used up, which means your filters will last longer and you’ll get cleaner air, longer in your commercial or industrial workshop, job site, or warehouse.
One industrial air cleaner brand that we recommend most of the time is Electrocorp, and that is largely because their carbon filtration is superior to anything we’ve found. They have a proprietary activation process that make their carbon absorb more pollutants than any other charcoal or carbon on the market.
So instead of spending what seems to be less money on a cheaper air filtration unit or system and getting ripped off by inferior performance and higher costs in the long run, it makes a lot more sense to buy a better industrial air cleaner with the best carbon and lots of it. You’ll have better air quality, less maintenance, and fewer complaints or health issues because the air is consistently cleaner.
