Commercial air pollutant removal is key to protecting the health, safety, comfort, and productivity of employees, patrons, and other building occupants. Indoor air quality is impacted by a variety of factors that can change the type, volume, and risk of air pollutants — smoke, VOCs, mold, and bacteria are just a few.
Air pollutants not only develop indoors, they also easily make their way into buildings from the outside — this is why preventing exposure and improving air quality are so important. According to the EPA, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, most Americans spend up to 90% of their time indoors and many spend most of their working hours in an office environment. Studies conducted by the EPA show that indoor environments can have levels of pollutants that are higher than levels found outside. Overexposure to commercial air pollutants can result in serious health and safety risks and leads to employee complaints, an increase in sick days, and loss of production.
Overexposure to smoke, mildew, viruses, and other air pollutants found in commercial buildings has been associated with mild to severe health effects based on exposure time — these conditions are especially hard on people who suffer from allergies and other preexisting conditions. Not only is bad air quality a health and safety risk, but air pollutants can also settle on floors, work surfaces, and inside of equipment, causing malfunctions, added repair costs, and an increase in downtime. Smoke eater air cleaning systems work continuously to capture air pollutants and circulate clean, filtered air.
While it's true that Smokeeters are known to be designed especially for smoke, they can also be utilized in health care facilities, welding schools, auto body shops, and other commercial settings where bacteria, fumes, viruses, odors and VOCs, dust, and mold spores need to be removed from the airstream.
Smokeeters use Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) technology to effectively capture air pollutants while lowering energy bills and maintenance costs by preventing build-up on floors, work surfaces, walls, windows, and furnishings. Like a magnet, ESP Collection Cells capture the charged air pollutants and send the contaminated-free air through a carbon after-filter to eliminate odors. The result is safe, clean, and breathable air.
