Cleanroom Solutions

Cleanroom Solutions

Universities are often pioneers of new technological research and utilize cleanrooms depending on their processes. Whether you need help custom-designing your ISO cleanroom or the terminal HEPA or Fan Filter HEPA units to meet your customer’s needs, we’ll be there to assist.

Bag-In/Bag-Out HEPA Filters

Bag-In / Bag-Out HEPA Filters for Universities

Some of the top research institutions in the U.S. and the World rely on Containment systems for their research. Whether it’s Medical, Animal, Biological, or Chemical Research, our HEPA filters will ensure your environment has safe, clean air that is free from airborne pathogens. These are often part of the BSL-2 and BSL-3 lab packages for schools to protect students and teachers and keep hazardous air from escaping.

General Ventilation Filters

General Ventilation Filters

The pandemic has changed the requirements for ASHRAE-style MERV filters. Through the pandemic task force, several K-12 filters are now using MERV 13 or higher filters, and most Universities are using MERV 14A or HEPA filters. Several of these come with a cost increase, so we recommend using our technology to avoid quarterly filter changes, reducing labor and saving you on building expenses.

Dust & Fume Collectors

Dust & Fume Collectors

Whether it be K-12 Woodshops, maintenance shows, or University Research areas, we make dust or fume collectors designed to meet your needs. We will take a look at the equipment in your area and provide the proper system to meet your design requirements.

UV-C Lighting

UV-C Lighting

These innovative products eliminate mold and harmful contaminants that build up on HVAC systems, allowing them to run as intended. With a mold-free system, you can be confident in the air that cycles throughout your building.

Adding UV-C also has a unique benefit in that it can clean your coils and restore them to their original design conditions. Post-pandemic UV-C has been used to activate microorganisms through a single pass, reducing infection rates among students.

Molecular Air Filters

Molecular Air Filters

Gasses and vapors are often in the air in pools, industrial technology shops, and laboratories. We can use a combination of molecular filters that utilize Carbon or Permanganate to help remove these nuisance gasses or odors from your space.

Air Cleaners & Purifiers

Air Cleaners & Purifiers

Our air cleaners and purifiers fit seamlessly within any environment. Equipped with a HEPA filter, these products assist the overall filtration system to further protect the health of workers, leading to increased productivity.



Several K-12 schools often lack the system capability to run higher MERV-rated filters. Bi-polar ionization uses all EPA-certified products to reduce maintenance costs and better filter the air.
