What is a Negative Air Machine Used For?
Negative air machines have many uses. Abatement companies and building contractors use HEPA negative air machines to prevent contamination from dust and toxins. Some examples include odors from paint and varnish, silica dust, lead and asbestos, mold, and general dust control for construction and renovation projects. During maintenance work in an occupied healthcare facility, you must use containment and HEPA air filtration equipment (a negative air pressure system), to fully capture all contaminants and airborne dust. This is a CDC requirement, whether you're cutting into flooring or walls, removing ceiling tiles or replacing fluorescent lighting. Hospitals that care for patients with infectious diseases use negative pressure rooms to comply with CDC guidelines.

OmniAire HEPA Negative Air Machines
OmniAire HEPA negative air machines, such as their MF100MED, OA600VMED and OA2000VMED models, are considered "the industry standard" for hospital and healthcare environments. We have a large selection of OmniAire systems from Omnitec Design, from lightweight units that provide an airflow of 200-600 CFM to their largest portable model, the OmniAire 18000, with 18,000 CFM airflow capacity.
Which Negative Air Machine Model Do You Need?
To determine which model is best suited for your application, see our Air-Flow Calculator. By entering the dimensions of the containment area and the number of air changes per hour that are required, you'll obtain the room's CFM (airflow in cubic feet per minute). From there, we can recommend a model that meets your needs.
