The Carrier OptiClean negative air machine is a portable, minimum 600 CFM or maximum 1500 CFM solution primarily designed to help convert normal hospital rooms into airborne infectious isolation rooms (AIIR). Designed to comply with ASHRAE’s Standard 170 for Ventilation of Health Care Facilities, the Carrier OptiClean uses a 99.97% efficient filter and a heavy duty, yet quiet, motor to remove filtered contaminated air from the room. The resulting negative air pressure, or “vacuum effect” helps limit the spread of airborne contaminants into surrounding areas. If negative pressure is not required, such as an open-air, temporary hospital, the machine can be used as an air “scrubber,” pulling air in, removing many contaminants, and discharging cleaner air back into the space.
Units come in two sizes and the unit sizing is based on the volume of the space being conditioned. Quantity discounts are available please ask you representative. All units include free delivery and standard setup.
