An Air Scrubber removes contaminants in the air. It works by drawing air through a series of filters where the air contaminants will be deposited. Clean purifier air will be released out the other side.
There are 2 filters inside this unit. The first is the HEPA pre-filter. The pre-filter is designed to catch large particles before they run through the main HEPA primary filter. If the HEPA pre-filter is not used, the HEPA primary will get clogged up and get destroyed very quickly. Please ensure that the pre-filter is never removed throughout the duration of the hire.
The HEPA primary filter is the main filter that will be removing the extremely small particles (mould spores etc.). It is placed well inside the unit and sealed to the sides so no contamination can leak past.
There is another filter that may be required is an optional carbon filter. This unit is placed between the pre-filter and the HEPA primary. It is used for removing gases (VOC’s), smoke and other odours.
