1: The main aim of this machine is to maintain the air quality of the premises where it is installed. However, in today’s COVID-19 pandemic situation, most of the schools, cafeterias, libraries, gymnasiums, restrooms, etc. are going to be opened. This machine helps to provide better air quality so that the virus cannot spread in the specified areas.

2: This machine takes a large amount of air and converts into clean air by removing the contaminants which are present in the air.

3: This machine is portable in nature and takes only 3 square feet area when it is installed in the vertical direction. Moreover, this machine can also be installed in a horizontal direction as well.

4: This machine can be operated in two modes i.e. air scrubber mode, negative air machine mode. In the former model, it removes the contaminants of sized nearly about 0.3 microns from the air and its lifetime of about 40,000 hours. While, in the latter mode, this machine converts the normal hospital rooms (or any areas) into negative pressure airborne infectious isolation rooms by adding a vacuum effect to the filtration unit.

5: It has a red-colored light indicator that warns the users that filters are overloaded and has the correct time to change these filters. It is made up of galvanized steel material and is fully insulated.

This machine must be a game-changer that helps the COVID-19 warriors to stop the spread of coronavirus. As the latest report of WHO also shows that the Coronavirus may also be spread through the air medium. In this situation, these machines provides a great help to all human beings and company give a great benefit to the humanity.
