With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, air filtration and purification is now more important than ever. This airborne virus moves through small water droplets called bio-aerosols, emphasising the fact that air purification is crucial for controlling the virus.
Extraction and local exhaust ventilation specialists, McCarthy Environmental now offer two new mobile filter devices, the ESTA VirBox and E-PURE ASPRA, designed to reduce viral load, such as COVID, in work areas.
Incorporating a highly efficient HEPA 14 filter and positive ionization technology respectively, the devices capture and contain 99.995% of viruses held in aerosols from the extracted air. The plug and play devices from McCarthy Environmental are compact and easy use, making them suitable for any working environment whilst effectively supporting current Government measures in place to help reduce the risk of COVID-19, such as regular ventilation, social distancing and PPE. Installed with an EC motor, the devices are quiet in operation, also making them suitable for offices or low volume working areas. This makes the device more energy efficient with minimal expense to run the device whilst relieving environmental pressures. #
Andy Shearer, Business Development Manager at McCarthy Environmental, said: “These devices are vital for working environments. Essentially they will suck in any viruses and bacteria in the air and either contain them or kill them.”
The VirBox started off as a new welding fume filter, however, it has now been adapted based on the current threat of COVID-19. This product stands out from any others on the market, for this reason, Andy continued: “As these units have been put together specifically with COVID in mind, it gives additional piece of mind to any employer regarding risk and protecting their staff's health. It’s important that we invest in protecting our workforce.”
McCarthy Environmental provide systems and support services to control harmful substances and fumes within engineering, manufacturing and industrial operations. As an independent specialist, McCarthy provide a full range of quality products to manage welding fumes, dust, oil mist and odours, alongside a bespoke manufacturing capability which provides for complete, cost-effective turnkey solutions from consultation and design, through to installation, commissioning, operator training and ongoing systems maintenance.
