Hospital Contamination Control (IsolationAir®)

As a leader in environmental control systems across a variety of industries, Air Innovations understands that the needs of our customers extend well beyond simple control of temperature and humidity. That’s why we developed the IsolationAir® contamination control system for hospitals, extended care facilities and emergency preparedness centers. This portable solution, which includes on-board HEPA filtration, UV sterilization, air conditioning and ductwork, quickly converts a standard-sized patient room into a negative or positive pressure environment. IsolationAir improves air quality for patients and staff and expands institutions’ surge capacity for infectious disease outbreaks, trauma and burn care.

See our IsolationAir-brochure for more details about our line of standard hospital contamination control systems.


IsolationAir® Features:

Isolation Air

  • Removes airborne particles with HEPA filtration
  • UV light is used to sterilize airborne viruses and bacteria on the HEPA
  • Either negative or positive pressure control
  • The room is isolated from the central system using temperature control



Helps meet established benchmarks in the National Bioterrorism Hospital Preparedness Program:

  1. Critical Benchmark #2-2: Surge Capacity: Isolation Capacity
  2. Critical Benchmark #2-9: Surge Capacity: Trauma and Burn Care
  3. Cross-cutting Critical Benchmark #6: Preparedness for Pandemic Influenza


IsolationAir also meets the guidelines for the following organizations:

  1. CDC guidelines for infectious disease control in health care facilities
    1. Minimum of 12 air changes per hour via HEPA filters
    2. Use portable units as needed to augment ACH – recirculating room air
    3. Maintains minimum pressure differential of 0.01” (+ or – depending on the application)
    4. Maintains dehumidification controls
    5. Maintains backup ventilation – can be portable units – for emergency provision
    6. Ultraviolet light can be used for supplemental control
  2. AIA guidelines for design and construction of hospitals, incl. heating and cooling control to 75 °F
  3. ASHRAE – Chapter 7 in Applications Handbook regarding health care facilities
