Practical Applications

Air Scrubber for remote air filtration

A LakeAir Air Scrubber can be used for many applications. One of the neatest ideas is to use it to provide extra clean air from a remote location. Often times there isn’t room to mount an air purifier flush with the ceiling. Often you don’t want an air purifier hanging from the ceiling. You want your establishment to look pristine and have quiet clean air for your customers and staff.

Placing an LAAS-16000  above your restaurant or cigar bar might be just the right fit for your high class environment. The Air scrubber could be placed in an adjacent room. The powerful 1600 CFM blower can pull dirty air from your establishment and return clean air in a quiet and efficient manner.

We have designed systems to clean huge rooms. Imagine 60 air scrubbers in place to provide quiet clean air to a Casino floor.  The maintenance is done out of the site of customers. Keep your upscale operation running efficiently with a LakeAir products.

Air Scrubber Filters

The LAAS -800 has two filter slots. You choose what 2 filter types you want. This will depend on what you are trying to filter from the air. The most common filter for slot 1 is high-density MERV 14 Media. This filter holds a lot of particulate and filters out many fine particles.

Slot 1 can hold Media, Electrostatic, or HEPA. In rare cases it could hold Odor controlling carbon. Slot 2 can hold all 6 types of filtration. The beauty of this system is it allows you to mix and match the filtration type that work best for you.

5 types of Air Scrubber filtration

High Capacity Merv 14 Media

The MERV 14 media we use has over 60 square feet of media with a high dust load limit. This means you have to change out filters less. This media has a very low pressure drop. The pressure drop is under .30 wg. This filter is 75% efficient on particles 0.3 to 1 micron. It is 85% efficient on particles size 1 to 3 microns and 95% efficient on all larger particles.

This filter is great a a secondary prefilter. We say secondary because there are 2 filter screens before you get to filter slot 1. This filter could be used in both filter slot 1 and 2 and do a nice job of removing the majority of dust from a work area. As a prefilter it will allow secondary filter to removing the remaining particles with ease.

Electrostatic Precipitator Cell Filtration

Electrostatic precipitators  work by charging air particles as they pass through the first stage of the filter. In the second stage of the filter the dirt particles are trapped on collection plates. The dirt is trapped there until you wash it away during regular maintenance. These filters last a very long time and save you money in the end.

An Electrostatic Cell  is a great primary filter. It removes 97% of particle from the air. It is washable and therefor reusable. It offers a low cost of operation as you never have to replace it. The electrostatic cell shines when dirty air can be run through it several times. Choose this Filter type for long term projects where filter replacement costs outweigh initial cleaning efficiency.

True HEPA Filtration Media

A True HEPA filter removes 99.97% of all dirt particles as small as 0.3 micron from the air. It is a tight weave of synthetic materials that trap just about anything you might want to rid from the air. It is the best technology to remove particles within a single pass.

For this reason HEPA is the most common filtration used in air scrubbers.  The filters are easily replaced. With a good pre-filter probably Media or Electrostatic, they will have a fairly long life.

Activated Carbon: Odor Control Media

Activated carbon is a natural odor absorber. Carbon granules have thousands of tiny crevices where odor molecules become trapped.  7 grams of activated carbon has a surface area size equal to 1 acre of land. We use virgin coconut shell carbon that is very good at removing the odors and VOCs commonly found in commercial applications. Other carbon and absorbents are available as well. If you have special needs we will provide a special media blend to remove stubborn VOCs problems. Most of the time a special blend of odor absorbents add no extra cost. 

The Carbon filter in a LakeAir negative air machine is 4.5 inches wide, weighing about 10 pounds. This filter does a great job removing odors and VOCs produced in many manufacturing processes. It can also help freshen air in remediation processes. The air coming from a water damaged area can be quite putrid. Use this filter to vastly improve air quality.

UV Filtration: Ultra Violet Light

UV filtration uses ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms in the air. As air passes through the UV chamber the viruses, bacteria and other live organisms  come into close proximity with UV-C rays and die. We use high quality lights spaced closely together to produce a high kill rate. The UV filter must be placed in the 2nd filter slot. The UV Cartridge also contains a 2 pounds activated carbon filter. This makes for a high level of clean regardless of the filter in slot number 1.


HEPA Air Scrubber

An industrial air purification system that eliminates gases or particles from the air is referred to as a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) scrubber in relatively recent usage. It is frequently employed to purify gas emissions and industrial exhaust streams. An illustration would be the elimination of sulfur from the exhaust system of a power plant.

Purifiers are just one of the many gadgets available to improve indoor air quality, which is a similar objective that guided the design of LakeAir’s HEPA air scrubbers.

In order to provide the area with high-quality air, our devices provide moisture, some remove moisture, and some remove airborne pollutants such as chemical smells, fumes, odors, dust, contaminants, allergens, smoke, and particulates from the air.

What is a HEPA Air Scrubber?

Air scrubbers are equipment used for more severe indoor pollution that is designed to clean the air in larger spaces. Both industrial and domestic uses exist for these mobile filtration devices.

Some people use air scrubbers inside their homes even though they are typically used in commercial and industrial settings to remove hazardous particles, chemicals, and gasses from the air.

LakeAir’s air scrubbers purify the surroundings by removing air pollutants in an area up to thousands of square feet. Construction, renovation, and other types of remodeling typically contribute to this pollution.

How Do LakeAir's HEPA Air Scrubbers Work?

A single operator can easily move a portable air scrubber throughout the room. LakeAir’s air scrubbers have a tiny footprint, being greater than they are long. They are essential to preserving the quality of the air in a variety of locations, including universities, hospitals, construction sites, and manufacturing facilities.

High-rpm motors, high-efficiency backward-curved blowers, and vertical cabinet designs are characteristics of an air scrubber. Although every air scrubber unit is unique, they all operate in the same way.

Three filters on our portable air scrubber rentals enable us to filter out 99.97% of airborne pollutants. The several-stage filters increase the HEPA filter’s useful life. A blower, a pre-filter, a carbon filter, and a primary filter are all components of LakeAir’s air scrubber—together, these components clean the filter of airborne contaminants.

The HEPA filter, also known as the primary filter, is the last filter that the air passes through. It is designed to remove any minuscule particles—even those as fine as 0.3 microns—that the earlier filters were unable to capture. The clean air is expelled from the air scrubber with the aid of the blower after passing through these filters.

When Do You Need a HEPA Air Scrubber?

To address problems with indoor air quality, several industries use air scrubbers. The easiest way to filter out these airborne particles is using LakeAir’s filtration system—especially if you are working or living in an area with insufficient access to clean, healthy air.

Water Damages

When water damage occurs, you’ll likely need to use a number of dehumidifiers and air scrubbers to get rid of the humidity, germs in the air, and other irritants. A trustworthy air filtration system from LakeAir is crucial since mold spores may appear if water remains in your area for longer than two days.

Mold Attacks

Wherever there is an excessive amount of humidity in the air, mold grows well. If mold problems aren’t managed properly, your building’s structure and even your health may suffer. Toxic compounds produced by mold can assault bodily cells and cause more serious health issues. 

The phrase sick building syndrome refers to a global problem that happens when buildings have problems with poisonous mold and bacteria, leading to sickness and chronic disease in those who work or live there.

Medical Facilities

If the HVAC systems aren’t adequately controlled, hospitals and other medical facilities are frequently prone to sick building syndrome.

When HVAC systems malfunction, it’s crucial to provide LakeAir’s HEPA air scrubber in hospitals to prevent airborne pollutants from damaging the structure and its occupants.

Lake Air’s air scrubbers are the ideal rental if there are air quality problems at the medical facility.

Construction Sites

Construction and demolition sites can be hazardous environments for workers when they are exposed to things like sewage damage, toxic gases, chemical fumes, and dust. In these circumstances, LakeAir’s HEPA air scrubbers are perfect and will aid in capturing these particles, allowing on-site workers to complete their tasks in a safe manner.
