Upgrade with AstroCel® TM RSC

The Air Filtration Situation
Originally, the customer is using traditional HEPA box. The problem was both the HEPA box and the HEPA filter leak, which results in unnecessary filter replacements that take 3-4 hours long to replace the HEPA filter per room. Other filter suppliers cannot provide a solution to this major problem
AAF worked with the hospital system to upgrade the HEPA housing to AstroCel TM RSC model, designed to fit with a gel seal filter for easy room side change. We demolished the old ceiling and removed the leaking HEPA box. Then we constructed a new ceiling that fits AstroCel TM RSC housing well throughout the entire room and installed AstroCel II in the HEPA boxes to ensure there will be no more leaks during operation.
AAF’s AstroCel TM RSC model has brought some benefits for the end-user, it helped reduce their operation costs with the lowest possible pressure drop from fibreglass media. Since it is lightweight and compact, filter replacement is made faster and easier with filter leak-free guarantee. It also meets the customer budgetary requirements and reduces the time of replacement of the HEPA Filter. After they switched to AAF and changed their HEPA box following our proposed solution, they annually pass the validation testing which is about 3 times already. The hospital system now has substantial validation that it is providing the best Air Quality, the best achievement for their patients and staff.
