by Brianna Crandall — June 26, 2020 — As the world navigates the COVID-19 pandemic, Envirco, a brand of global technology provider Johnson Controls, has introduced the IsoClean portable HEPA filtration system to minimize transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
IsoClean can be used either as a positive-pressure clean-air recirculating system in clinics, waiting rooms, hospital emergency rooms and other confined areas such as hotels, correctional facilities or college dormitories, or as a partial or complete exhausting unit to easily and economically construct a negative pressure isolation room/environment that meets OSHA and CDC TB guidelines.
Mark Mattingly, vice president and general manager, Air Filtration Products, Johnson Controls, stated:
The IsoClean is an easy and economical solution that is ideal for healthcare professionals looking to create a negative pressure, isolation patient room. The system can be easily rolled from one room to another and fits into areas with limited floor space. The portability and practical applications this solution offers [are] optimal for facilities looking for an economical investment.
IsoClean standard features are:
- Low-cost isolation room: Simply roll the IsoClean into a standard room, connect flexible ducting to the 6-inch (152 mm) collar on the top of the unit for partial exhaust or to the optional 8 in. (204 mm) flanged collar for total exhaust, and vent the purified air to the exterior through a window or wall.
- Flexible applications: The versatile IsoClean can be used as a clean-air recirculating unit, a negative-pressure unit, or as a split system to create both negative pressure and clean-air recirculation by simultaneously exhausting some of the air out while recirculating the remainder back into the room.
