"...I need a smoke eater, but I don't have a
drop ceiling... what can I do?"
Some commercial establishments only have
high, open-type ceilings with exposed beams, while others may only
have solid sheetrock ceilings. Whatever the configuration,
these flat or open ceiling style areas cannot accommodate some air
cleaners. Fortunately, the Smokeeter SE 50 is available.
This commercial air cleaner is not meant to be recessed into a
ceiling plenum, but rather installed on a wall, or hung from the
ceiling joists. Smoke is warmer than the atmospheric air, so it will
naturally rise; however, it will eventually cool off, and start
leveling off, then falling back into the breathing zone. This
usually happens between 13 and 15 ft. Therefore, it is a good
practice to capture the contaminants where they are going to be most
The Smokeeter SE 50, like its less
powerful siblings, also uses electrostatic precipitation to draw the
contaminant particles out of the air. This filtration method
is more efficient than using media filters, mainly because there is
no sacrificing of airflow. Unlike media filters, which "block"
particles using tightly woven fibers, ESP filters consist of an
ionizing section followed by collector plates. The ionizing
section gives the particles an electrostatic charge, then as the
charged particles pass the collection plates, they are pulled out of
the air stream and agglomerate on these oppositely charged plates.
See the diagram below for a visual representation on how this works.
