The HEPA-AIRE H2KMA Deluxe Negative Air Machine is very similar to the HEPA-AIRE PAS2400 Air Scrubber. In order to understand the main differences and similarities of these models, it’s important to know the difference between air machines and air scrubbers. Below, we will help you understand these products better by covering the main differences between these two types of products.
What is an Air Machine? (HEPA-AIR H2KMA Deluxe)
An air machine is not to be confused with an air scrubber. Although these two products are similar, they are not quite the same. Below, we will cover three things that make an air machine stand apart from an air scrubber. Although certain exceptions stand out in the H2KMA model that we will explain, there are some general guidelines to follow that can help you understand what this product is best used for.
- Uses HEPA Filters
Air machines use High-Efficiency Particular Air (HEPA) filters. These are powerful air cleaning systems that have been routinely tested for removing up to 99.97% of airborne contaminants. These filters are so effective that items as small as 0.3 microns can be trapped in the filter. Although both the H2KMA and PAS2400 use HEPA filters, many air machines stand apart from air scrubbers in that they use HEPA filters. Air scrubbers generally don’t use HEPA filters.
- For Everyday Use
Air machines such as the HEPA-AIR H2KMA are geared more towards everyday use. This model is a little heavier duty in that it is also a favorite choice for abatement contractors. However, it is common for people to purchase a product like this for their home.
- Helps Make Your Home Air Clean
Although heavy-duty air machines like the HEPA-AIR H2KMA can be used by professional contractors, these models are generally preferred for those who want their own air filtration system. All you need to do is ensure that the HEPA filter remains clean and is consistently replaced.
What is an Air Scrubber? (HEPA-AIRE PAS2400)
An air scrubber like the HEPA-AIRE PAS2400 is a very high-quality air scrubber. In order to understand why this might be the better option, it is important to look at some of the common air scrubber features. Keep in mind, though, that this model does go above and beyond standard air scrubber features. We will explore why this is the case below.
- Uses Wet or Dry Scrubbing
Air scrubbers typically don’t use HEPA filters. However, the HEPA-AIRE PAS2400 is a high-quality air scrubber that does use a HEPA filter. This model is a lot higher-quality than most air scrubbers. For this reason, it doesn’t solely rely on wet or dry scrubbing like many other air scrubbers. It is also worth mentioning that having a HEPA filter doesn’t make this model a lower-quality than other air scrubbers.
- For Commercial Use
Air scrubbers like the PAS2400 can be used for a wide range of purposes. This can include health care construction, critical environment protection, abatement, remediation, healthcare facilities, and so on. The H2KMA, on the other hand, is only recommended for abatement, remediation, and health care construction. Clearly, the PAS2400 is the more versatile model of the two.
- Helps Clean Up Air for Workers
Using an air scrubber is a great idea if you are trying to clean the air in a bigger office environment. The PAS2400 stands out in this regard for both its portability and versatility. In addition to having extra airflow, it also comes with wheels that help you to move the unit from room to room.
