While vapors & dust are the primary air pollutants nail salons are always most concerned with, airborne microorganism capture and removal should also be considered when implementing highly effective salon ventilation control measures.
The recently updated Nail Manufacturers Council on Safety’s updated “Guidelines For Controlling And Minimizing Inhalation Exposure To Nail Products” brochure refers to nail source capture systems with eHepa® technology as providing enhanced dust collection and vapor adsorption capability.
Aerovex Systems distributes both Healthy Air® salon air purification & source capture systems which couple advanced eHEPA® technology with proven Enhanced Carbon Catalytic Filtration to treat contaminated air in a multi-stage process that captures and removes harmful molecular air pollutants and microscopic airborne particles, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), other hazardous gases and particulate, bacteria, virus, mold, fungi and odors.
Integrating a high energy field with traditional HEPA filtration, eHEPA® technology successfully overcomes limitations and inefficiencies associated with standard filters. The result is a truly effective air purification process that collects particles of the smallest size, including microorganisms, with high efficiency and at low pressure drop.
Furthermore, by applying a high energy field that generates active species that permeate through the filter media, eHEPA® not only captures but also destroys microorganisms at extremely high kill rates, thereby preventing the reproduction of these unwanted microbes on the filter surface which leads to re-contamination of the airflow.
