How Purification Air Showers Purify People and Items

What Is A Purification Air Shower Used For?

A purification air shower is a type of specialized equipment designed to remove contaminants from personnel and items prior to entering controlled environments. Air showers utilize high velocity filtered air to dislodge and eliminate particles, reducing the risk of contamination. They purify anyone passing through by airflow, filtration and physical barriers.

Air showers leverage a three-pronged approach to maximize purification:

Using Directed Forced Airflow

The turbulent high-speed air currents dislodge particles from clothing, shoes, equipment and exposed skin by simple but powerful air velocity.

Utilizing HEPA or ULPA Filtration

Air recirculated in the enclosure goes through HEPA or ULPA filters trapping particles down to 0.12 microns or 0.01 microns respectively.

Providing A Physical Barrier

The air shower structure provides a physical segregation between clean and dirty areas, limiting cross-contamination. Interlocked doors prevent both from opening at once.
