Here’s how the GEA Clarifair works
The GEA Clarifair is a virtual smokers’ booth, without walls, that was developed by the GEA Air Treatment Division in Herne, Germany. It intakes up to 1,500 cubic metres of air per hour, and cleanses it in re-circulated-air mode. The system employs a triple filter system: the pre-filter captures coarse particles, and an electrostatic precipitator removes microscopically small smoke particles. The last stage, an activated carbon filter, removes odours. Thanks to its extremely high air throughput, and its complete capture of smoke in the area used by smokers, tobacco smoke doesn't have a chance to propagate in the rest of the room. In addition to the recirculated-air mode, the integrated motion sensor contributes to resources economy by turning off the system when the last person leaves its radius of action. If additional purification of the room air is desired, the GEA Clarifair can be set to continue operation for a prescribed time after the last smoker has left the vicinity.
