Keeping up with Best Practices
Restoring structures after floods and fires is a constantly evolving industry. In addition to keeping up with industry best practices for health and safety of both the contractors and the building residents post restoration, it is also important to be working with modern and reliable restoration equipment. Utilizing Omnitec and OmniAire products will allow you to take advantage of the latest best practice methods with equipment you know will work reliably and safely.
Use heat to speed up evaporation
Within the last few years, there has been an industry-wide move towards using heat to increase the evaporation rate of moisture in materials. Most modern Dehumidifiers (LGRs) have increased their range of ambient operating temperatures as high as 125°F to support the use of external heaters on the jobsite. Omnitec Design offers two models of the Vulcan Electric Heat Drying system; the smallest and yet most powerful Electric Heat Drying units on the market today. The Vulcan and the Vulcan RT can provide up to 180°F of dry heat and have been specifically designed to work well with modern LGR’s and other specialty drying equipment such as High Pressure drying systems. Maximize your drying efficiency and effectiveness by using the Vulcan or the Vulcan RT Electric Heat Dryers on your next hard to dry job or on any project where boosting the ambient temperature levels will provide faster and more efficient drying.
Remove airborne dust and contaminants
Airborne contaminates and dust is a significant consideration for almost any restoration project. Did you know that studies have shown a substantial increase in air particulate matter during the drying process? Not only does dust and contaminates affect your worker’s safety, but also the safety of the post-restoration occupants. Just increasing the air circulation doesn’t remedy the situation and, without adequate filtration, may actually create more problems. OmniAire HEPA Air Filtration machines are industry recognized as among the best available. By filtering the jobsite air through HEPA filtration, you not only reduce the airborne contaminates and dust, but you also increase air-flow throughout the dry-out project and maintain a safer, cleaner environment. With our extensive line of OmniAire HEPA Air Filtration machines and our unique OA1500HS HEPA moisture extraction unit we are able to meet whatever size restoration project you may have. Use our AirFlow Calculator to see which machines are the best suited for your jobsite needs.
Control odors, mold and bio-contaminants
In addition to dust and airborne contaminants, there can often be the additional issue of mold spores, bio-contaminates and the need to maintain sanitation levels during the restoration process. For this purpose, Omnitec Design has developed the PEROx Air Purifier. The PEROx Air Purifiers are designed to control biological contaminants, mold spores, odors, and VOCs as well being able to support sanitized air and surfaces during the restoration process. PEROx Air Purifier generate hydro-peroxide ions which are a proactive method of indoor air sanitation without the use of additional chemicals and can safely be used in occupied spaces through restoration and in final cleanup of restored areas. Omnitec Design makes both a stand-alone model and an add-on module to our other machines.

FAQs – OmniAire Equipment and Restoration Projects
- Amount and size of airborne dust particulates
- Airflow requirements
- High static pressure drop across the filters (see User Manual)
- Risk of cross contamination from one project to another
Dustlock primary/secondary filter should be replaced when its orange, downstream side shows signs of discoloring by dust. Our dual density poly media captures particulates in full depth of the filter media rather than on the surface, as pleated filters do. The m edia is treated with tactifier to prevent release of captured dust and antimicrobial additive to prevent growth of virus and bacteria. Frequent replacement will help to maintain high airflow and protect the more expensive HEPA filter. The HEPA filters should be replaced when the airflow decreases below your requirements or when pressure (“WC) across the filter increases to recommended replacement pressure – See User Manual. Some of our OmniAire air filtration machines are equipped with a simple Filter Change light to indicate that filters should be checked or replaced. HEPA filters become even more efficient when loaded with particulate matter, but the airflow resistance increases and the airflow could be reduced to zero. Average HEPA filter life is 800 t0 1000 operation hours.
