Air Cleaning Blowers

Highland, New York-based Air Cleaning Blowers LLC says it has developed and patented a series of technologies, named Air Cleaning Blowers or ACBs, that enable a blower to clean the air without using a filter element that clogs and constantly needs replacing. ACBs:

  • ventilate, pressurize and clean particles from dusty air without using any filter elements
  • help reduce the costs and complications of providing ventilation in industrial settings
  • are simpler to size and use than systems with ordinary air filters and air purifiers
  • provide constant and predictable airflow, air pressure, air quality and energy consumption
  • can be used in applications with airflows that range from 50 to 3,500 cubic feet per minute
  • can serve as prefilters for specialized downstream filters
