Ellis & Watts designs, qualifies, manufactures, and tests air cleaning systems for high efficiency contaminant control. The systems can be engineered to remove particulate and gaseous contaminants to meet comfort, health or process requirements.

Ellis & Watts Filtration and Air Cleaning System capabilities include capture and/or control of chemical, biological, and radiological contaminants.

Specific areas of expertise include - CLICK TO SEE FULL LIST

  • moisture separation to eliminate entrained water from the air, conforming to MSAR 71-45
  • pre-heaters to reduce the relative humidity of the air prior to entering the filters
  • prefilters up to MERV 16
  • HEPA filters with efficiency of 99.97% or 99.99%
  • Carbon Adsorbent Gaseous Phase Filters including:
    • Type II (Tray Type) adsorbers for quick change out
    • Type III (Fill-In-Place or Gasketless) adsorbers to ensure zero air bypass; Depth options are available to balance cost and change-out frequency
    • Type IV (1″ or 2″ V-bank) adsorbers for quick change out; these are ideal for use with Bag-In/Bag-Out systems
    • integral test canisters for periodic laboratory analysis to determine change frequency
  • welded construction to ensure leak-tight performance
  • various housing thickness and insulation types
  • analog, relay-based controls to address qualification, cyber security, or EMI/RFI concerns or digital control systems
