The Shadow as a Particulate Filter for Viruses and Bacteria

Apr 17, 2020

Need to address indoor air quality so that viruses, pollen, and other unhealthy particulates are removed? Then use the mobile, self-cleaning, plug-n-play Shadow particulate filter for viruses and bacteria.Shadow Compact Fume Extractor for viruses and bacteria

While in industrial, light industrial, and commercial environments, employees must work in a safe, clean air space.  Because of this, the Shadow self-cleaning, portable particulate filter may be a great fit. It was originally developed as a fume extractor for welding and also laser cutting applications. But its features also make it a viable solution for filtering viruses and bacteria in many indoor spaces. More specifically, it has high filtration efficiency, a small physical size, and is designed for easy installation.

Although relatively compact, it offers 2,400 CFM (cubic feet per minute) to 3,200 CFM of HEPA (High Efficient Particulate Air) level filtration.  In other words, this captures 99.97% of .3 to 3-micron particulate based on particle count. In a space that is 20’ long x 20’ wide x 15’ high (6,000 ft³), the air could be exchanged or recirculated 32 times per hour.

Whether it is pressurizing the space or pulling air out of the space and recirculating that air, the portable self-cleaning Shadow does the job as a filter for viruses and bacteria. Furthermore, a continuous pulse cleaning system keeps the filter operating efficiently.
