Description: Newly introduced in a 1,500-cfm model, the product helps to maintain clean and healthy IAQ in spaces such as classrooms, cafeterias, libraries, gymnasiums, and restrooms. The new unit joins the existing OptiClean 500-cfm unit, which was launched in April to help create infection isolation rooms in hospitals treating COVID-19 patients. The new model draws air from inside larger spaces, removes many contaminants and discharges cleaner, filtered air. Like the 500-cfm unit, the 1,500-cfm unit plugs into a standard wall outlet and uses a greater than 99.97 percent efficient, long-life HEPA filter to significantly reduce the presence of coronavirus and other contaminants in the air. The units exceed the ASHRAE® school reopening recommendation that portable electric HEPA machines be introduced into each classroom and provide a minimum of two air changes per hour. The portable units take up about 3 square feet of floor space when oriented vertically, and can also be operated horizontally, allowing for placement in classrooms, cafeterias, libraries, or gymnasiums. One 500-cfm unit can adequately clean the air in an average-sized classroom; the new 1,500-cfm unit is designed for larger spaces. In both cases, multiple units can be used for more expansive spaces.
