Unfortunately, part of life is getting sick, and then sometimes taking care of someone else who is sick. Although this is almost inevitable, there are definitely precautions that can be taken to help ease the number and concentrations of germs spreading around your home to the rest of the family. To help control germs, dusts, dust mites and other particles already in your home without bringing in outside air, We Clean Air makes the Safety Halo®.
By installing a Safety Halo® into the room of the ill patient, you can assure that the air is circulating and that its HEPA filter is cleaning out disease-causing germs. In a home there are many people living in close quarters. That proximity certainly increases the chances of cross contamination, especially if there are rooms shared by two or more sick patients.
To protect those patients as well as the rest of the family, it is important to keep the air as germ-free as possible. By installing a Safety Halo® above the sick patient’s bed and locating it properly over the patient, it will provide a cone of gently-pressurized flowing air that will block or capture and carry away from the patient germs and other contaminants exhaled or brought in on the clothing of family, medical and other visitors. It will also help blow away germs that the patient exhales to help reduce reinfection and protect others. In addition, the Safety Halo® will also help reduce the overall number and concentration of germs in the room and can do the same if another Safety Halo® is installed in family or other rooms.
The Safety Halo® is easy to install without machinery and can be done quickly. The Safety Halo® works by pulling the dirty germ-filled air into its housing to filter it. First, it passes through a pre-filter at the point of entry that extracts larger dust particles from the air. Then the air flows through a HEPA filter element to clean out germs and other tiny contaminants. After the HEPA filter, the air then blows out of the bottom of the Safety Halo® to replace the dirty air in the room. Having the pre-filter on this unit helps prevent the HEPA filter from clogging quickly and greatly extends its life. This will significantly cut down replacement and maintenance costs.
So next time you walk into the patient’s room to bring them a bowl of soup or take their temperature, reduce your concern for your and your family’s health with a Safety Halo®.
Another thought: since most doctors and medical researchers agree that one of the best ways to reduce infection from airborne droplets and other particles carrying germs is simply to dilute their concentration and drive them out of the room or the house. Here is where our Air-Cleaning BlowersTM (ACBs) can help. Developed and patented specifically to remove particles in tough, dusty environments without using filter elements, Air-Cleaning BlowersTM can remove most kinds of industrial and mining dusts as they blow out clean air. Home-sized units will bring in clean air from outside for ventilation and leave the dust, pollen, and other particles outside.
Instead of blocking and collecting the debris with filter media, ACBs use the momentum of the particles to separate them from the air and eject them directly. The big benefit: they blow and clean air without any filter elements to buy, store, replace or dispose. Since debris does not accumulate in the units, you can count on steady airflow, air pressure and power consumption. No filter elements means no filter maintenance!
Independent testing found that standard ACBs remove 98+% of all particles in the air down to 10 microns (millionths of a meter) in size—most people can not see particles smaller than 50 microns in size. Fine hair is closer to 90 microns and pollen is 15 microns or larger. Air-Cleaning BlowersTM also remove larger particles such as sand, metal scraps and wood chips, so they can help keep garage and workshop dust out of the house.
ACBs also remove rain, mist, and snow from the air, which keeps the air dryer and reduces the load on air conditioners and other dehumidifying equipment. Another benefit: unlike filter media, they will not become wet—or freeze up—and stop air from passing through.
Originally developed for heavy industries such as steel, mining and fertilizer plants, ACBs are so effective that they are used by the US military in the Middle East to keep air conditioners cooling in sandstorms. They can do the same for your home.
Most people don’t want to collect particles, they just want clean air. Clean air is what ACBs provide.
