AJ Manufacturing Introduces Portable Air Filtration Units for Creating COVID-19 Patient Isolation Rooms
Kansas City, MO, April 6, 2020 – AJ Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer of critical environment HVAC products, has introduced a portable version of its Reverse Flow Criti-Clean Ultra™ Fan Filter Unit (FFU) to quickly and easily create patient isolation rooms. The new units were specifically developed to help protect healthcare workers treating COVID-19 patients and to help reduce the spread of the virus.
Like the original ceiling-mounted model, the portable Reverse Flow Criti-Clean Ultra™ FFU connects to existing ductwork and creates a negative pressure environment that removes the air from a patient room and cleans it via the unit’s built-in HEPA filter, keeping airborne contaminants from escaping. The unit comes on wheels for easy movement and can be plugged into a standard electrical wall outlet.
“We’re proud to be able to do our small part to help protect healthcare workers who are treating the growing number of coronavirus patients,” said Rob Haake, president of AJ Manufacturing. “Our plant is 100% focused on producing both our permanent and portable FFU models for as long as they are needed to help stop the spread of the virus.”
In addition to reverse flow units that take in air and remove it from a room, standard FFU models – both ceiling mounted and portable – are also available to bring HEPA filtered air into a room. AJ’s ceiling mounted FFUs offer the industry’s lowest plenum height of just 13.7ʺ, allowing easier retrofitting into existing ceiling spaces.
