Crystal-Aire Concealed Commercial Air Cleaner

"...Modular Air Cleaner Customizes to your air cleaning needs..."


The Crystal-Aire is a concealed commercial air cleaner that is installed in the ductwork above your ceiling. This In-duct system is commonly used for smoke and dust; however, it can be used to filter many annoying particles that may pollute your air. The Crystal-Aire unit can be used to clean the air of many rooms using multiple filtering systems.

How Crystal-Aire Works
Most think that all duct systems clean the air with the HVAC filter that is replaced monthly; however, this is not true. There are several particles of dust and even smoke that you may not be able to see that can irritate and aggravate allergies, respiratory afflictions and even cause colds.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Crystal-Aire concealed air cleaners are specifically designed to remove heavy amounts of smoke, dust, allergens and other hazardous irritants such as bacteria and viruses from the air. Its modules are installed above the ceiling, virtually out of sight. Only the inlet and outlet grilles are visible, and depending on your business’ layout, you have the flexibility to determine the placement of these grilles to ensure complete and efficient removal of harmful airborne particles.

 

Quiet and Cost Effective
Crystal-Aire units cause hardly any distraction, because they are quiet and discreet. This air purifying unit is installed above the ceiling, so it runs more quietly than other large-capacity air cleaners. Crystal-Aire can also clean several rooms, being that there are many accessories that are optional within the packages. This air cleaner can also create a "curtain" of airflow to help separate smoking and non-smoking sections, when correctly placed. In addition to providing a clean air environment for your guests, customers and employees, Crystal-Aire can help your business save money. Using a Crystal-Aire system can help reduce or even eliminate dirt and dust buildup on the surfaces around your environment. Crystal-Aire does not just remove the dirty air from the building by shooting heated or air conditioned air outside, it recirculates the air, thus reducing your heating and air conditioning costs.

How ESP Works
Crystal-Aire uses Electrostatic Precipitators (ESP) to remove particles like smoke, dust, pollen, bacteria, fungi and viruses from the air. Room air is pulled into the Crystal-Aire unit and given a positive charge. The air then passes through stacked plates with a negative charge, this pulls particles in the air to the plates like magnets. After, the air passes through an activated carbon filter which removes common odors from the air, leaving only clean, fresh smelling air behind.
 

Choose From a Variety of Module Options

All Crystal-Aire Cabinets
are modular and durable featuring heavy-duty 18 gauge galvanized steel construction. This modular design is meant to interlock with another module and designed to be very durable.  Each section is easily accessible for simple routine service and maintenance. Adapter panels for connecting to ductwork or other modules are available .

Motor/Blower Module
Every Crystal-Aire unit needs the motor/blower module, which is quiet and durable, in order to function. This motor/blower pulls air into an inlet vent, through flexible aluminum ductwork and filters, then out the outlet vent and into the room. A forward-curved blower that has cast iron pulleys and sealed ball bearings, provides continual air movement. This blower is powered by a 1.5 HP motor which is completely enclosed on an adjustable base for easy maintenance. This blower is also mounted specifically to reduce the amount of noise.

Electrostatic Precipitation (ESP) Module
Consisting of a prefilter, ionizer, collection cell, and an optional after-filter and power pack, the ESP module is the most commonly used with the blower/motor module. The motor/blower pulls room air through a metal mesh prefilter, which traps large particles like hair, then the air is given a positive electrostatic charge. The charged air then passes through stacked plates that are negatively charged, which pulls the positively charged particles to the plates like a magnet (these plates can be washed and reused, hello money saver!). The air could then pass through a 95% HEPA or carbon filter (optional) to remove bacteria, viruses, and fungi and common odors, respectively.

Bag Filter Module
Some building codes will not allow an ESP cleaner, instead a "bag"-type or "box"-type filter should be used. The Crystal-Aire Bag filter module has a prefilter just like the ESP module; however, it also contains a reusable "bag" filter. The bag filter is made up of media fibers that trap particles. These particles then trap other particles, creating a virtual traffic jam of pollutants. The bag filter gets more efficient with use, however may use more energy to effectively move the air through the bag filter. This bag filter takes up only a small amount of space.

Box Filter Module
The other option, a "box" filter, operates like the Bag filter and is comparable in effectiveness; however, in this module, a HEPA or ASHRAE box-type filter is used for high efficiency and special needs environments. This module still contains a disposable prefilter but also has a tightly woven media filter mounted in a square filter box. HEPA is used in medical facilities, so you know it cleans the air efficiently, in fact, it cleans the air of 99.97% of particulates 0.03 microns or larger in size.

ESP Module with Germicidal Ultraviolet (GUV) Lamps
This GUV module uses ESP filtering system and also an ultraviolet lamp. An ultraviolet lamp is used in hospital cleanrooms and sterilizes bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and dust mites. Using a GUV light also eliminates the need to handle any biohazardous contaminated filters. UV lights are used in doorways to help quarantine viruses, the viruses cannot move through doorways without being sterilized. These filters are very helpful in medical offices and high traffic areas.

Odor Control Module

This filter follows the ESP, Bag or Box filter section of the Crystal-Aire system. It contains 18 lbs. of activated carbon or potassium permanganate and an after-filter that may collect any dust from these filters. These modules collect common odors, such as grease, smoke, and pet smells.

Fresh Air Inlet Module
The Fresh Air Inlet is a transition piece or that delivers air from the outdoors, or another location in a building, to the filtration area. It has a six-inch collar and a slide gate for air volume adjustment.
