AQE2000 Self-contained Media Air Cleaner

Portable Cartridge System

AQE2000 Portable Air Cleaner
The new Portable Cartridge System from Air Quality Engineering Inc. is a complete self-contained media air cleaner for use in source capture applications in industrial settings. The Model AQE2000 captures airborne contaminants such as welding smoke, grinding dust, plastic dust and other fine particles.

Principles of Operation: Airborne contaminants enter the AQE2000 through the hood/arm assembly at a rate of 1100 cubic feet of air per minute (cfm). Heavy particles are propelled downward through the venturi and into the clean out trays. Small submicron particles are then trapped within the pleats of the two MERV 15 rated cartridge filters. The cleaned air is then gently diffused out the bottom of the unit. When the filter gauge indicates that the cartridge filters are dirty, they are easily cleaned by connecting a shop air line (80-120 psi) and activating the reverse pulse system.
