Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, dentistry has been one of the most dangerous professions and puts dentists and dental staff at great risk for infection. Air Innovations created the HEPAirX® ventilating room air filtration unit to keep patients and staff safer in the dental environment. This system can also be utilized in settings where clean air exchange is necessary.
The HEPAirX® system is an air filtration device that quickly and effectively purifies the room of airborne particles and contaminants. The system combines multiple strategies for maintaining optimal health. Each window unit uses medical-grade HEPA filtration, ventilation to exhaust the room air every 30 minutes for a standard-sized room, optional UV-C light, and creates positive or negative pressure spaces to reduce the number of particles from entering or exiting the space.
THE HEPAIRX® SYSTEM:
– Brings dedicated fresh air into the space to naturally dilute volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and gases.
-Integrates HVAC to isolate the space from the existing systems. HVAC ductwork is a source of cross-contamination between operatories. The HEPAirX® system seals off the existing system to isolate it from adjacent spaces creating a true isolation space.
-Pressurizes the space. Creates either a negative or positive pressure environment.
-Uses optional upstream UV-C light to kill viruses trapped on the intake side of the medical-grade HEPA filter. This is the only effective means of killing the virus on the HEPA filter.

ARE YOU PROTECTING YOUR DENTISTS & DENTAL STAFF?
A major concern in dental offices is the indoor air quality (IAQ). Many dental procedures produce aerosols and gases that may be harmful to your health and contribute to virus spread. Another harmful factor found in dental offices is volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This includes anything from cleaning agents to gases used during operation to chemicals made to use dental implants. The HEPAirX system directly addresses these concerns in occupied and non-occupied settings.
The HEPAirX® system allows users to convert a room to either a negative or positive pressure space. The negative pressure space will contain contaminants within the room, and the positive pressure space will isolate the room from nearby contamination risks.
The on-board heating and cooling feature gives providers and patients a comfortable environment to work in. This also allows you to shut off access to the building’s HVAC system in order to create a true isolation space. This eliminates cross-contamination risks from adjacent spaces.
CLEANROOM QUALITY CLEANLINESS
The MERV17 medical-grade HEPA filter and engineered fresh air exchange quickly remove particle contaminants from the space. It is equipped with smart sensors to alert the user when the filter needs to be changed based on particle loading data. This helps control spare parts costs by only changing the filter when it is actually needed.
KILLS VIRUSES & BACTERIA
The UV-C light bathes the medical-grade HEPA filter to sterilize the viruses and particles captured by the HEPA filter. The HEPAirX® uses upstream UV-C to effectively kill the virus trapped on the intake side of the HEPA filter. UV-C light placed downstream of the HEPA is not an effective means of killing viruses as they are moving too fast at that point for effective exposure.
