Houston IAQ Product Manufacturer Wins Honorable Mention Award

HOUSTON — Isolate Inc., of Houston, received an honorable mention for innovation in indoor air quality (IAQ) products at the 2003 American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) convention and trade show held in Chicago. The company displayed a duct-mounted combination UVC/HEPA air filtration unit with integral supply fan for space pressurization. The unit may be used as either a positive or negative pressure IAQ filtration module to kill and capture microorganisms in the air.

The unit is a compact design for above the ceiling and in-duct mounting for existing (retrofit) and new air conditioning use. All air delivered by the unit is 100 percent treated with a very high dose of UVC (ultraviolet) kill energy for maximum microbe elimination, with a trailing 99.99 percent efficient hospital-grade HEPA filter to stop all airborne particulate, down to a size of 0.3 microns, says the company. According to Isolate, “Until now, no duct-mounted equipment has combined the capture performance of a HEPA filter with the killing power of UVC in such a compact and user-friendly package.”

The unit can be added to the air conditioning or makeup air systems of existing offices, homes, or government buildings. With the unit delivering irradiated and filtered air to the occupied spaces, the entire building, room, or house becomes a “safe haven” from microorganisms, the company says.
