“With newly spiking numbers of COVID-19 cases across the country, the need for negatively pressurized isolation areas is on the rise.  The value of portable air purifiers is almost impossible to overstate in the circumstances we find ourselves in today. In response to growing demand, Camfil announces the new CamCleaner CC500.” Keith Woolard, Product Manager – Containment and CamCleaners

Riverdale, NJ — The launch of a new portable air purifier by Camfil continues its promise “Clean Air A Human Right.”

Camfil delivers the products needed for critical applications, such as COVID-19 treatment. The CamCleaner CC500 functions as both a portable air purifier or ducted negative air system for creating isolation areas.  Some of the salient features include:

The CC500 Solves Problems for Healthcare Facilities

Because COVID-19 spreads primarily through respiratory droplets, hospitals face a unique issue when treating infected patients. The air in COVID treatment areas should be kept separate from the air in other hospital areas so that infected air droplets don’t escape into uninfected areas. Because air flows from higher pressure zones to lower pressure zones, negative pressurization is commonly used to control the spread of airborne diseases in hospitals. When the air pressure in an isolation area is “negative,” it’s lower than the air pressure of surrounding areas, which means that outside air can flow into the area, but not out. This helps prevent infections from spreading but introduces a need for high-efficiency filtration within the area because of the lack of airflow. 

COVID-19 Spiking Numbers 

With newly spiking numbers of COVID-19 cases across the country, the need for isolation areas is on the rise. Because it is lightweight and portable, the CamCleaner CC500 allows healthcare facilities to quickly establish new isolation rooms if needed.  When installed as a room air purifier, the  CC500  keeps the air clean because of its HEPA filter and MERV-9A prefilter. Because one unit can accomplish both functions, it significantly reduces costs for the end-user.
