“HEPA” stands for High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance, a technology first during World War II to protect workers developing the atomic bomb by controlling tiny particles contaminated by radiation. HEPA filters are now used in mechanical air purifiers and are made with randomly arranged micro-glass fibers. Per regulations, HEPA filters must remove a minimum of 99.97% of particles larger than 0.3 microns to qualify as HEPA.
HEPA’s high efficiency, reliability, and proven track record has prompted HEPA to become industry standard for particulate filtration. HyperHEPA has taken this standard to even higher levels of efficiency, making it the best choice for critical environments, such as laboratories and hospital operating rooms – hence medical-grade air.
