Product Review New Art Products

AllerAir 5000Vocarb Purifier

Working with oils I have found I need to do everything I can to reduce the fumes that accumlate in my studio. Even though I do use safe products I have a problem with my nose. My hubby says I can smell something two doors down the block, I have to agree I think I have an overly sensative ability to smell.
I found a new product that I am going to order and thought I would share it with you,
It is the AllerAir 5000Vocarb Purifier.
AllerAir 5000 Series Air Purifiers are designed for today’s modern home, office and art studio! Each is housed in a cylindrical steel container on sturdy casters for easy mobility. Vocarb models are dual purpose units for filtering out particles and solvents. D and DX models are geared more toward solvents and to clean out chemicals, gases and odors. Features powerful four-stage filtration system which easily cleans up 1500 sq ft of space having an 8 ft ceiling height.

A specially blended Vocarb activated carbon mix traps and removes specific chemicals often found in oils, adhesives, acrylics and many paints. This unit features 18 lbs. of Vocarb carbon for chemical filtration and a medical-grade HEPA filter rated at 99.97% efficiency to trap airborne particles down to 0.3 microns such aspollen, dust, mold, bacteria and pet dander. The HEPA filter helps prevent dust from settling on drying paint and also helps to reduce airborne particles from pastels, woodworking, sculpting etc. Weighs 40 lbs. 120V. 60 Hz. UL listed.
