Keeping up with Best Practices

Restoration is key after floods and fires and 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 Design Inc 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

OmniAire 1200V Air Scrubber for restoration

OmniAire 1200V Air Scrubber

Airborne contaminates and dust are a significant consideration for almost any restoration project. Studies have shown a substantial increase in air particulate matter during the drying process. Not only do dust and contaminates affect your worker’s safety, but they 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’s 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, we are able to meet whatever size restoration project you may have. Try out our air flow calculator to see which machines are the best suited for your jobsite needs.

Control odors, mold and bio-contaminants

restoration equipment PEROx Air Purifier

PEROx Air Purifier

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 purifiers 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 for Restoration Projects

Air Filtration Machine vs. Neg Air vs. Air Scrubber
In general, these names are just a marketing terminology. When Air Filtration Machine is used to create negative pressure in containment, it is often called Neg Air machine. When used for re-circulation and purification of air in open area, it could be called Air Scrubber or Air Filtration Machine. OmniAire machines are built to provide a high quality service in any environment and application. Your specific requirements regarding airflow, type of project, accessibility are the important factors in choosing right equipment for you. See our comparison of OmniAire HEPA air filtration machines.
For the safety of the users and the acceptance of the equipment on governmental, hospital and many other projects, equipment has to meet the requirements of the applicable electrical codes. To verify the UL & CSA/IEC safety compliance and listing, each machine has an identification label with name of NRTL which performed the test and the manufacturer file number.
Use of negative pressure containment with HEPA air filtration prevents spread of asbestos fibers, mold and other contaminates to the outside of contained work area, All exhausted air is purified by HEPA negative air machine to create negative pressure and required air changes (ACH) inside the contained work area. In order to create a negative pressure environment more air must be exhausted from the space then leaking in. See our air flow calculator to assist you with your airflow requirements.
Our air flow calculator will provide a quick answer on required cfm and type of machines. Just enter the size of your work area and the number of air changes per hour (ACH). Six or more ACH are recommended for construction and renovation projects.
How often we need to be changing primary/secondary and HEPA filters?
The frequency of changing filters depends on:

  • 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 media 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.

High-efficiency particulate air or HEPA is a type of air filter. Filters meeting the HEPA standard have many applications, including use in medical facilities, abatement of asbestos, mold and lead, restoration after water damage and many other. The filter must satisfy certain standards of efficiency such as those set by the United States Department of Energy (DOE). To qualify as HEPA by US government standards, an air filter must remove 99.97% of all particles greater than 0.3 micrometer from the air that passes thru the filter. Click HEPA filters for more…
The odor and VOCs can be removed from air with OdorGuard600 and Vapor Trap carbon web filter added to OmniAire machine. For odors associated with water damage, sewer flood, fires and mold, use our PEROx air purifier to destroy safely the source of odor without using chemicals. PEROx unit contains Ionized-Hydro–peroxide generator which is very effective in destroying all types of VOCs, chemical fumes, decay odors, mold spores, virus and bacteria. This purification process is safe for workers and inhabitants.
