It allows work to be scheduled when it is not practical to evacuate personnel from a sensitive area. It will save you labor costs due the ease of which it is operated and in turn that saves you money.
Q. What is the air flow capacity of the HEPA filtration fan?
A. The Bio Cart is equipped with an 880 CFM HEPA filtration system. The fan maintains a negative pressure inside the Bio Cart, and passes the air through an electrostatic pre-filter to collect larger particles, a carbon pad to collect odors, and into a UVC/UVGI area above the HEPA filter to kill biological contaminates trapped by the HEPA filter. Finally after the 99.97% HEPA filter, clean air is released back into the room via the diffuse vents in the floor of the Bio Cart so that it does not disturb documents on the desks .
