Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality Systems

EIA provides IAQ Solutions that address all types of airborne contaminants

Our advanced filtration systems remove ultrafine particles, odors, VOCs, biologicals and gas phase contaminants from outdoor and indoor recirculated air.

Easton Industrial Air (EIA) air quality solutions have a broad range of clean air solutions and a proven track record for providing sustainable solutions that improve indoor air quality while saving energy and reducing operating costs.

EIA can clean your air to control infectious aerosols and all EIA air cleaners remove ultrafine particles odors and VOCs without ionizing or ozone generation. With 20 percent of energy consumption in commercial buildings coming from HVAC supply and return fan usage we save you energy and can cut fan energy in half. Our solutions are ideal for new construction or retrofitting into existing buildings we reduce your maintenance costs. EIA quality solutions use innovative technologies that provide advanced and affordable solutions to optimize air quality energy consumption and their impact on the environment.

Often  indoor air quality problems are from poor outdoor air quality. Especially in industrial areas, ventilation air brought in to meet minimum ventilation air requirements can be contaminated with ultrafine particles (UFPs), odors, exhaust fumes, or a combination thereof.

Ultrafine Particle Removal
With particulates, the most dangerous and troublesome particles are the smallest particles. Biological contaminants such as mold, bacteria, and viruses are a subset of particles. There are a number of sources, both inside and outside, that proper filtration can help control.

Viruses Bacteria Black carbon Diesel Exhaust
Fine Dust Jet Engine Exhaust Mold Spores
Tobacco Smoke Vehicle Emissions Viruses

In any space, the number and weight of contaminating particles are inversely related: A few big particles make up the bulk of the mass, while the millions of ultra-fine particles which cause the most health problems make up the bulk of the particle count, but just a tiny fraction of the mass. Coils and equipment are prone to damage from larger particles and historically that is what filters were designed to protect. EIA cleaners protect much more than just the HVAC equipment. Our lungs and respiratory systems, as well as very sensitive electronics are more susceptible to problems arising from the sub-micron and ultrafine particulate. Particles in these size ranges bypass your body’s defences and can carry with them a wide variety of VOC’s and reactive gas phase contaminants.

EIA Cleaners use active-field polarized media to remove even the smallest particles from the air. Polarized filtration greatly improves air cleaning performance due to the three-dimensional loading of particles to media fibers, as opposed to one-dimensional trapping seen in traditional passive filtration. Another inherent mechanism of polarization uses particle agglomeration whereby ultra-fine particles become polarized after passing through the air cleaner and as a result of polarization are attracted to each other, in addition to other chemical contaminants, to form bigger particles that are subsequently captured. This mechanism gives EIA Cleaners their superior ability to capture ultrafine particles. Treated air becomes cleaner than outside air. In testing performed in an office building equipped with EIA Cleaning Systems in downtown ultrafine particle levels were 92-99% lower than the levels in the outdoor air.

For this reason, effectively cleaning indoor air allows us to reduce ventilation air requirements. This can save money by reducing fan energy and also by reducing equipment horsepower requirements.

VOC and Odour Removal
EIA Cleaners have proven successful at removing VOCs and odors. Using active-field polarization and particle agglomeration, particles that become polarized after passing through the polarized media are attracted to other particles, VOCs and odor molecules to form larger particles that are subsequently captured.

Gas phase contaminants also have a number of sources. Inside a building they can come from furnishings, cleaning supplies, paints and finishes, and people. Outdoor sources tend to be from combustion processes; vehicles, kitchen exhaust, diesel generators, etc. Common VOC and odor problems include:

Adhesives Body Odours Chemicals
Cleaning Chemicals Formaldehyde Furnishings Off-Gassing
Human Waste Paints & Finishes Pet Odours
Residue from Smoke Tobacco Smoke Urine

EIA Cleaning System removes dangerous ultrafine particles and biologicals, reduces VOC’s and odors, and accomplishes this at a third of the operational cost of conventional passive filter alternatives.

Biological Contaminants
EIA Air Quality Solutions Sterile Sweep Germicidal UVC Lamps can be mounted to EIA Air Cleaners to provide effective control of airborne organisms including:

Bacteria Dust Mites Molds
Mold Spores Pollen Viruses
