Quest International signs up AAR as US distributor
In addition to distributing the product to its worldwide network of airline, government and defence customers, AAR will provide design engineering services and manage the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) processes required to install and operate the product on a variety of commercial aircraft. AAR and Quest are working together to develop aerospace applications for the product, streamline the manufacturing process and enter new markets.
“We believe that this product is a highly effective and affordable solution that represents a major milestone for health and air quality,” said James Clark, group vice president of AAR's Aviation Supply Chain Group.
AirManager can be installed in existing air filtration systems. The device uses patented Close Coupled Field Technology (CCFT), a safe and contained electrical field, to destroy and break down airborne pathogens, contaminants and toxins at the molecular level. Chemical and viral contaminants are essentially disassembled when subjected to the disruptive effects of this electrical field. The remaining particles are captured by electrostatic filters prior to the air being released.
“The key to the AirManager system is the variety of contaminants it can destroy and the speed at which it can process and produce clean air,” said David Hallam, md of Quest International UK. “The scalable system has achieved a 99.999% single-pass kill rate on bio-hazards and can filter out particles as small as 0.1 micron, with very little power consumption.” AirManager is currently in use in 5,000 healthcare, commercial and industrial facilities across Europe.
