AAF Flanders Portable Air Purification System Adds a Layer of Protection Against Viruses
Louisville, Ky., (April 19, 2021) Studies confirm commercial air filters reduce the spread of airborne viruses. When a person sneezes, coughs or speaks, tiny airborne droplets that could contain viruses not only travel many feet, but can spread through the HVAC system to all areas inside buildings.
To provide an additional layer of protection against viruses, American Air Filter, Co. Inc., and its subsidiary Flanders Corp (AAF Flanders), a subsidiary of Daikin Industries, developed AstroPureTM a portable air filtration system. AstroPure works by increasing air-recirculation rates within a given space effectively cleaning the air every time it passes through the 2-stage advanced filtration system. The system uses a high-capacity MERV 11 pre-filter and the most robust dual-layer eFRM media HEPA filter which not only reduces cost of replacement filters, but produces a safer environment for staff and customers of medical offices, restaurants, schools and retail space.
