Carrier OptiClean™ Dual-Mode Air Scrubber & Negative Air Machine
FN1AAF

500 - 1500 CFM

The Carrier OptiClean™ rolls easily into any room and plugs into a standard electrical outlet to quickly improve indoor air quality (IAQ) in schools, hospitals, and other commercial facilities. It can be operated in two modes:

Air Scrubber—uses 99.97% efficient, long-life (~40,000 hour) HEPA filters to remove particles as small as 0.3 microns, then discharge cleaner air back into the room. Ideal for a wide range of commercial applications, including K–12 classrooms and open-air, temporary medical facilities.

Negative Air Machine—helps convert normal hospital rooms into negative-pressure airborne infectious isolation rooms (AIIR) by adding a vacuum effect to the HEPA filtration capability. Designed to ASHRAE Standard 170 for Ventilation of Health Care Facilities.

The units can be operate either vertically or horizontally in both modes.
