MANAMA, Bahrain, 14 June, 2020: Bahrain-headquartered Awal Gulf Manufacturing, which produces commercial and residential air conditioning and refrigeration units, has launched PEARL air purification unit. Making the announcement through a Press release, the company described the unit as using state-of-the-art design technology to deliver fresh air through an efficient filtration system.
The PEARL air purifier, the company said, is powered by portable multi-layered, high-efficiency HEPA filters, designed to remove viruses and bacteria from the air, thus providing enhanced level of respiratory protection. The air purifier, the company claimed, also uses the latest UV-C technology that decontaminates the indoor air by killing up to 99.999% of airborne viruses and infections.
Speaking on the occasion of the launch, Ghassan Freiwat, Deputy CEO, Awal Gulf Manufacturing, said: “The world is currently passing through an unprecedented time, and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has never been so critical to the health and safety of the people. Clean air is specifically vital in hospitals, clinics and healthcare facilities to protect patients, staff and visitors from airborne diseases and infections. We at Awal Gulf Manufacturing believe that as leaders and experts in the HVACR industry for almost 50 years we have got a role to play in creating a safer, cleaner and efficient environment. We are pleased to launch our all-new PEARL air purifier, with a filtration efficiency of 99.999% down to 0.3 micron particles, H14 as per EN1822. The unit is now available to order through a select dealers network across Europe, Middle East & Africa.”
The unit, the company said, is a simple plug-and-play system with no integration into the existing mechanical systems. The system, the company added, draws in contaminated air and removes all bacteria and viruses through a series of integral filters and then delivers clean air back into the built-environment.
The unit can be placed in common areas, hospitals and ancillary healthcare facilities. including research labs and pharmaceutical plants, the company said, adding that its application is not limited only to the healthcare vertical but can also be used in educational institutes, and residential and other commercial applications.
