Dri-Eaz HEPA 500 Air Scrubber
The HEPA 500 Air Scrubber is designed as a companion to your
Dri-Eaz dehumidifiers to be used for drying purposes during water damage and clean up projects. If you are working in an area where
dust, mold, and other contaminants are present or in spaces where indoor air quality is a concern, you need to purify the air with
this industrial grade air purifier.
The HEPA 500 comes standard with a HEPA filter to capture dangerous particles. Two separate prefilters work to trap the larger particles and
increase the lifespan of the HEPA filter. This is the first and only air scrubber in the
market designed to deliver the highest CADR - and achieve 99.97% true HEPA efficiency at 500 CFM.
What I like about the HEPA 500
In our company, one of our main goals is to figure out ways to make
indoor air quality better for allergy sufferers. Most commercial air purifiers and dehumidifiers do not
take into account the majority of our customers. With the HEPA 500 Air Scrubber, Dri-Eaz is different. Its main job is to scrub the air clean
of the pollutants that can commonly appear on restoration and water damage cleanup sites. Pathogens, germs, viruses, bacteria, and mold are all
common problems when cleaning up after a flood, and these are the things the Air Scrubber specifically tackles. It is also
important to keep in mind that you can upgrade beyond particle filtration to include an Activated Carbon Filter. This additional filter targets
the health hazards and nuisances that can make flood repair difficult and dangerous.
One of my other favorite features of this air purifier is its ability to be stacked. "Daisy Chain" capability
means that the units can be linked together, stacked tightly and safely to make a wall of air purification. On disaster sites, this can
be a critical features when power and outlets are at a premium.
Use is simple and easy, and aside from changing the filters, you can drop the Dri-Eaz Air Scrubber into some of the most challenges
environments and see an immediate improvement in the air quality. The lifetime warranty on the rotomolded body allows for years of service, and the
Microban that is infused in the shell actively works to keep the unit free of harmful bacteria and other pathogens that are common on water damage restoration sites.
Lastly, this model is made right here in the U.S.A.
What I do not like about the HEPA 500
Dri-Eaz promotes the unit as easily transportable, but it does not have wheels. You can carry and lift the machine
with the convenient handle, but it does weigh 44 pounds. You can move them between rooms or job sites, but it might not
be easy for one person to load into a truck bed.
Overall, the Dri-Eaz HEPA 500 is a great commercial/industrial air purifier. From the design and construction to the air filtration results this
machine is durable and built to handle the rigors of any construction or restoration site.
