Our popular, medium size negative air machine with variable speed and compact size housing is extremely versatile. It is used in
A negative air machine creates a pressure differential between two different areas. In its natural state, air wants to move from higher pressure areas to lower pressure areas in order to reach equilibrium. Negative air pressure machines use this natural inclination to the advantage of infection control.
As an isolation technique, an air machine uses a fan system to force air out the isolated area and through a HEPA filter before it is exhausted into another area of the facility. By controlling the pressure differential with a negative air machine, the facility is able to ensure that all air leaving the isolated room is filtered and clean before it comes into contact with any other patients, thereby lessening the chance of spreading infection.
