An industrial air purifier is used to clean indoor workspaces to maintain a healthy working environment and increase productivity. They help eliminate bacteria, viruses, mold, and other pollutants that are released during industrial operations. These recirculating units use powerful fans to filter the air in the room and redistribute it. The filtering process uses HEPA and activated carbon filters to remove pollutants from the air. These units are often larger than residential air purifiers, and their size varies depending on the area of the space that needs to be cleaned. Look for a unit with a high CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) rating, which determines how much of the air the purifier can filter per hour.
These recirculating industrial air cleaners are ideal for large workspaces that need to be free of dust, debris and harmful chemicals. They are typically used in manufacturing, retail, food & beverage, metal processing, woodworking, and other commercial spaces. They can be used to improve the quality of air in restaurants, bars, cigar lounges, hospitals and other medical facilities.
In addition to removing dust, smoke and germs, these industrial air cleaners are designed to trap odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These VOCs can be generated by paint, solvents, cleaning products, and other chemicals that are used in commercial space. Industrial air purifiers are also often used in warehouses and factories to reduce the presence of vapors that can cause fires.
The global industrial air purifiers market is segmented by type, portability, and end-user industry. By type, the market is categorized into molecular and particulate. The molecular industrial air purifiers segment accounts for the maximum share in the market due to the increased demand from various industries including metal processing, food & beverage processing, and wood working.
Particulate industrial air purifiers can be used to remove smoke, fine dust, and mold spores. They are able to capture these particles and remove them from the air with an electrostatic filter, which is then passed through a wet or dry filter to separate the contaminants. The wet or dry filter can then be rinsed to keep it effective.
Activated carbon filters are used to reduce the presence of odors and VOCs. The carbon adsorbs odors and gases from the air, and is especially useful in commercial spaces that use a lot of chemical cleaners. In general, it is best to choose a commercial air purifier that can be run continuously for extended periods of time without requiring frequent filter replacements.
Anyone with a serious immune system problem like allergies, COPD or emphysema should consider getting an industrial air purifier for their home. They can be quite bulky and take up a lot of space, but they can do the job. They can also be expensive to purchase and maintain, so they may not be appropriate for everyone. However, anyone who simply wants to remove common household dust and mild allergens should find that a smaller air purifier will be sufficient.
