The Air Velocity Reducer is an infection prevention device that prevents the spread of microscopic dust, particulate, and pathogens that are blown from the floor by the exhaust of HEPA air scrubbers.
Less disruptive to the native airspace, reducing the opportunity for dust—a very effective transporter of mold, bacteria, viruses and other health-threatening microorganisms —to become airborne.
Remember, prevention comes before infection control. Prevent the spread of dust, particulate, and potential microscopic pathogens that are blown by HEPA air scrubbers as it exhausts along the floor or ceiling.
Provides construction and facilities teams the opportunity to vent their HEPA air scrubbers indoors instead of having to vent through a window.
HEPA air scrubbers forcefully blow exhaust out increasing airborne dust & debris
Exhaust air is diverted upward at a reduced velocity to prevent kicking up dust & debris
The Air Velocity Reducer is compact and attaches to your existing HEPA air scrubber via a flexible duct line. *compatible with 8" & 10" diameter outlet pumps up to 1000cfm.
Instead of blowing forcefully across the floor, exhausted air is pushed upward through two baffles and a diffusion chamber before gently exiting through an additional filter.
Prevents dust and particulate from being stirred up by HEPA air scrubbers outside of worksites and spread to adjacent patient rooms.
Venting through the ADS system is approx 5db's quieter compared to the sound coming out of a HEPA exhaust hose.
Reduces HEPA exhaust air velocity by 75%, which prevents micro-particulate on the floor and ceiling from being disturbed and spread in construction worksites.
Provides construction and facilities teams the opportunity to vent their HEPA air scrubbers indoors instead of having to vent through a window. HEPA exhaust can be vented into the hallway safely.
Instead of an exhaust hose blowing forcefully across the floor, exhausted air is pushed upward through two baffles and a diffusion chamber in the ADS system before gently exiting through an additional filter.
Prevents guests and patients from having to walk through HEPA air exhaust decreasing the possibility for negative experiences and outcomes.

Patient safety is one of the principles in healthcare... 'do no harm'. Using the Air Velocity Reducer reduces the risk for patients in the hospital getting an infection related to construction. When this unit is used, especially near the most vulnerable patients, I know they are better protected. Keeping the flow of air off the floor, where may microorganisms land, prevents the pathogens from blowing and landing on those who are at risk, thus reducing the risk of infection."

For Hospital Operations:
Reducing the risk from potentially dangerous contaminants including pathogens generated by construction or maintenance is a challenge in any occupied building. Managing associated construction risks in a hospital filled with vulnerable patients requires planning and diligence.
Without the Air Velocity Reducer™ HEPA air exhausts into hospital hallway, stirring up microscopic dust, particulate, and pathogens from the floor.
With the Air Velocity Reducer™ HEPA air exhausts gently, upwards—without disturbing the floor.
