Australian Company designs a Fantastic New Weapon in the Battle Against the Coronavirus

22 Apr 2020

Ezi-Duct & Polex Environmental Engineering, Australia’s leaders in Air filtration Equipment have combined their many decades of experience in designing and manufacturing an air filter to meet the demands of the COVID-19 health crisis currently affecting the world.

Wayne Dockrill, Managing director at Ezi-Duct, and Grant Stevens, Managing director of Polex Environmental Engineering, have around 60 years of combined industry experience. They worked closely together in the past months to develop the new ULPA Air filter that will outperform existing HEPA Filters being currently used in the market.  

What is the difference between ULPA and HEPA filters?

The key difference between industrial HEPA filters and ULPA filters is in the size of the particles they can remove.

While HEPA filters can remove up to 99.97% of contaminants as small as 0.3 microns in diameter, ULPA filters can remove

99.99% of the particulates that are 0.12 microns or more in diameter. 

The new ULPA Filter is a powerful yet portable air filtration apparatus that can filter and remove 99.99% of the particulates that are 0.12 microns or more in diameter. It is constructed hygienic stainless steel material that can easily be disinfected after use.

Even with the high airflow, the ULPA Filter is only 750 mm wide and can be wheeled through a standard doorway and runs on single phase power. 

The ULPA Filter's Hi-Efficiency Fan has a powerful yet variable air flow of up to 3500m3/h @ 1000 pa pressure. 

The ULPA Filter can either operate as a standalone unit in larger areas or ducting can be connected to it to filter the air from several smaller rooms.

It can be used in such areas as Hospitals or Medical centres, waiting rooms, schools or university classrooms, office environments, shops, supermarkets , age care facility, restaurants, clubs or anywhere else  where people gather

New studies have shown that the covid-19 virus can last longer in the air than first thought, remaining infectious for more than 12 hours.

It was now imperative to quickly develop a super fine air filter that can remove infected air from areas where people gather, filter the air and returns clean air back to the area.

Ezi-Duct are now taking pre-orders for this brilliant new product.
