Ceiling-Mounted Air Purifier with HEPA Filtration Provides Less Costly Solution for Creating Patient Isolation Rooms
The ceiling-mounted HEPA-CARE HC500CD Air Purification System from Abatement Technologies® is the perfect solution for creating CDC / CSA-compliant negative pressure isolation rooms in fixed locations in hospitals and healthcare facilities. When not being used in negative pressure mode, the flexible HC500CD can also be operated as a continuous recirculating air purifier to lower airborne pathogen counts and reduce potential exposure to high risk patients and staff. Compared to ‘design and build’ isolation rooms, the two-module HC500CD is far less costly to add and implement.
The filtration module suspends completely out of the way in a 2 ft. x 2 ft. drop ceiling grid. The separate, tamper-resistant control panel box can be wall-mounted within the same area as the HC500CD or remotely in another area of the building.
The powerful HC500CD Patient Isolation System can provide and maintain 12 air changes per hour (ACH) or more in areas as large as 2,250 to 2,750 cubic feet. The unit is equipped with an H14 Type HEPA filter tested and certified to capture at least 99.99% of microscopic particles 0.3 microns in size.
“Dirty” air laden with potentially infectious airborne organisms and harmful microscopic particles is first pulled through two filter stages:
UVGI Disinfection Technology Cleans and Sterilizes the Air The optional UV400C-PT Ceiling-Mounted Air Disinfection Module adds the germ-killing power of germicidal UV to the HEPA-filtered HC500CD Ceiling-Mounted Air Filtration System. The combination of HEPA filtration and UV-C irradiation provides an additional level of air purification protection. Learn more about the UV400C-PT UVGI Air Disinfection Module for the HC500CD.
Optional VAPOR-LOCK® Carbon Filters Remove Odors and Gases The HEPA-CARE® HC500CD Ceiling-Mounted Air Purifier can also be equipped with an optional VAPOR-LOCK high-capacity, activated carbon or carbon blend filter to remove odors and gases. The VAPOR-LOCK filter replaces the standard 2” particulate pre-filter and must be ordered separately.
Advanced features of the HC500CD Ceiling-Mounted Air Purification System include:
Operates Quietly Above the Ceiling
With quiet background operation (35 dBA to 59 dBA @ 5’), the HC500CD is hard to notice at work creating negative pressure and purifying the air.
Long-Life HEPA Filter with Strong Aluminum Frame
Each pharmaceutical-grade HEPA filter from Abatement Technologies is individually tested and certified in accordance with the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology IEST-RP-CC001 to provide minimum filtration efficiency of 99.99% against a 0.3 micron challenge aerosol. The high-performance HEPA filter is mounted within a strong anodized aluminum frame that will not warp or support microbial growth.
Silicone-Gel Seal Protects Against Contaminated Air Bypass
A downward-facing flange imbeds into a silicone-gel seal creating a channel that forces air through the HEPA filter and protects against the risk of contaminated air bypassing the filter.
Hinged Door for Rapid Filter Replacement
Hinged, front door secures with two Phillips machine screws and provides quick access to both the HEPA filter and the 2” particulate pre-filter for replacement or maintenance.
Low-Profile, Wall-Mounted Control Panel Box
High-visibility, color LCD touch screen control box installs in the room or remotely. Intuitive, menu-driven screens are accessed after opening the Password Entry Screen:
All Abatement HEPA-CARE units have been tested by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) and carry the marks certifying that they comply with applicable OSHA, UL and CSA electrical safety standards. Filters meet UL900 flammability standards.
