To meet the growing need for patient isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic, Kansas City, Missouri-based AJ Manufacturing introduced a portable reverse flow fan-powered HEPA filter diffuser to quickly create negative-pressure isolation rooms in any permanent or temporary hospital environment.
AJ Manufacturing, an industry leader in manufacturing of stainless steel air distribution products for critical environments, such as hospitals, laboratories, pharmaceutical plants and other environments, introduced a portable version of its Reverse Flow Criti-Clean Ultra Fan Filter Unit to quickly and easily create patient isolation rooms. The new units were specifically developed to help protect healthcare workers treating COVID-19 patients and to help reduce the spread of the virus.
A company spokesperson explained, “like the original ceiling-mounted model, the portable Reverse Flow Criti-Clean Ultra FFU connects to existing ductwork and creates a negative pressure environment that removes the air from a patient room and cleans it via the unit’s built-in HEPA filter, keeping airborne contaminants from escaping. The unit comes on wheels for easy movement and can be plugged into a standard electrical wall outlet.”
“We’re proud to be able to do our small part to help protect healthcare workers who are treating the growing number of coronavirus patients,” said Rob Haake, president of AJ Manufacturing. “Our plant is 100% focused on producing both our permanent and portable FFU models for as long as they are needed to help stop the spread of the virus.”
In addition to reverse flow units that take in air and remove it from a room standard FFU models, both ceiling mounted and portable, are also available to bring HEPA filtered air into a room. AJ’s ceiling mounted FFUs offer the industry’s lowest plenum height of just 13.7?, allowing easier retrofitting into existing ceiling spaces. The company offers a wide range of both standard and custom products, including filter and non-filter diffusers, supply and return grilles, dampers, louvers and more.
