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.
- 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:
- Critical Benchmark #2-2: Surge Capacity: Isolation Capacity
- Critical Benchmark #2-9: Surge Capacity: Trauma and Burn Care
- Cross-cutting Critical Benchmark #6: Preparedness for Pandemic Influenza
IsolationAir also meets the guidelines for the following organizations:
- CDC guidelines for infectious disease control in health care facilities
- Minimum of 12 air changes per hour via HEPA filters
- Use portable units as needed to augment ACH – recirculating room air
- Maintains minimum pressure differential of 0.01” (+ or – depending on the application)
- Maintains dehumidification controls
- Maintains backup ventilation – can be portable units – for emergency provision
- Ultraviolet light can be used for supplemental control
- AIA guidelines for design and construction of hospitals, incl. heating and cooling control to 75 °F
- ASHRAE – Chapter 7 in Applications Handbook regarding health care facilities
