A truly clean facility means starting clean and maintaining it. The golden rule for clean facilities is preventing contaminants from entering. However, if contamination does get in, it is important to control where it goes. The energy efficient E-series units (E1, E2 and E3) are designed and proven to achieve a certifiable clean facility in less than an hour. They are designed with specially selected filters and fan combinations to control particles that affect indoor grows the most.
Powdery mildew typically exists between 20-30 microns in size. The E-series units are nearly 100% effective in capturing all mold spores in a single pass and holding them indefinitely. The clever design pushes clean air through the upper plant canopy and draws contaminated air low, thereby minimizing spore spread. Reducing the number of mold spores in the air helps mitigate spread to the rest of your crop.
The E2 with built-in E-Guardian monitoring (and E3 with optional built-in E-Guardian) is an autonomous system designed to ‘see’ these invisible particles and automatically react to increases in contamination by speeding up the fan. This automatically provides additional particle capture for mitigating the airborne spread of powdery mildew and bud rot. Upon detection of particles between 20-30 micron, the E2 will also alert the grower and give a tremendous advantage to early intervention techniques. This enhances the grower’s ability to intervene and save an otherwise unprotected crop from damage and lost revenue.
The Puren Solutions E-series air filtration units are proven, easy-to-use solutions that can also aid crops already in distress. Easily portable, the mobile E-series units can be moved into outbreak rooms for added mitigation efforts. After use, they can be fully sanitized to prevent the spread of contaminants to other locations.
As the core foundation to an integrated pest management (IPM) plan, a Puren Solutions suite of products allows a grower to rapidly recover successive crops and spaces as well as maintain clean harvests, free of powdery mildew.
No. The E-Series units (E1, E2 and E3) have been consciously designed to be absolutely clean over their entire service life. They have zero contribution of any particles or VOCs to any environment. Competitors who build similar air filtration units use belts that shed rubber micro-waste and require regular replacement and/or have fibrous insulation and other unwanted contaminants. While we expect the E1 and E2 units to reliably serve you for many years, Puren Solutions is an environmentally conscious company and has taken extra care in its design to ensure that the units are almost entirely recyclable.
The E-series units (E1, E2 and E3) represent a no-nonsense step forward as industry leading, energy-efficient air cleaning devices. When the filters are clean, the unit uses less than 300 watts of electricity per 2,000 cubic feet per minute of airflow. The units were specifically designed to be used in extraction, indoor agriculture, and food processing facilities and to maximize risk reduction potential while maintaining low operation cost. Depending on the cost of power in your area, it can cost as little as $0.50 USD/day to operate!
The E-Guardian Monitoring System continuously monitors and alerts with ultra-low power consumption of no more than 30 watts.
For just pennies a day, the Puren Solutions suite of products continuously aids in the protection of your facilities, products and people without adding to other environmental costs.
The Katana is a clean sheet design that took the core disadvantages of every existing UVC product on the market and crafted a waterproof, portable, high-powered and slim design UVC wand for indoor agriculture facilities. Its slim design won’t shred plant canopies and the extended reach allows for deeper penetration to hit hard to access spaces. We didn’t sacrifice true 265 nm UVC output in this totally portable, battery powered system. We use 26 watts of UVC LEDs in a patent pending housing to dissipate the huge heat load. Lastly, it’s made to get in direct contact with sources of contamination - such as powdery mildew, while being able to decontaminate the wand in your favorite sanitizing solution between applications to prevent cross contamination.
The Katana can be used across many industries such as food processing, restaurants, hospitals, medical clinics and much more.
In an indoor agriculture environment, powdery mildew (PM) can exist at multiple stages of plant growth. Common applications of the Katana are during cloning of plants when the plants are stressed, to spot treat the fruited parts of plants in a crop looking to reduce or avoid chemical application, during drying and more.
Bud rot can show up during the final stages of fruiting or even after harvest. At the fruiting stages or post harvest, chemical treatment for bud rot is not an option. Therefore some of our clients have seen success in the application of the Katana to those trouble areas, including in post harvest storage bins. The slim design of the Katana makes it easy to maneuver in narrow spaces and storage containers without damaging the end product while eliminating rot and mildew.
Lastly, the Katana was specifically designed to be decontaminated after every use. Similar to your tools and surfaces, the Katana also needs to be disinfected between uses, especially after a known contaminant exposure event. The Katana is also an easy way to quickly and effectively decontaminate tools, equipment, surfaces and any other devices used in grow environments.
A key differentiator of the E-series air filtration units (E1, E2 and E3) is that they carry a water resistance rating of IP56. They are designed to be regularly sanitized and chemically sterilized both inside and out without voiding warranty. These units are specifically designed for lab extraction, food processing and indoor agriculture markets with the need for cleanliness and prohibition of cross-contamination in mind. These units have been thoroughly tested to ensure they can endure these high-use, sanitary environments. No other product on the market carries this rating or guarantee. If our competitors’ units get wet, their warranty is void and damage can occur.
The E-series units are incredibly flexible in their installation. The portable E1, E2 and E3 units can be rolled into an area 2,000 square feet or less and scrub 99% of air particles 0.3 microns or larger in less than 30 minutes. All units are made to perform reliably, efficiently and maintenance-free for years, offering the lowest total cost of ownership of any similar product on the market.
The E2 and E3 (with optional E-Guardian monitoring) units are the only industrial air filtration units on the market with built-in IIoT based smart monitoring technology. The early warning system will alert you to jumps in particle counts while automatically adjusting the fan speed to capture them quicker. Data can be exported for record keeping and use in reporting.
The short answer is: it depends on how dirty your facility is. We structure this conversation around the two different filters provided in the unit. We have a less expensive prefilter that absorbs a majority of airborne contaminants. Behind it is a pricier final filter that removes the remaining smaller contaminants in the airstream before the air is released back into the facility. We provide pressure gauges for each filter to indicate when an individual filter needs to be changed. Feedback from our indoor agriculture clients is that they tend to replace the prefilter after each harvest (~12 weeks) and the final filter every 6 months or so. Each facility and operation is unique, so please contact us with your desired application of the unit and we can provide complementary recommendations and feedback specific to your needs.
Both the mobile E-series units (E1, E2 and E3) and mounted E1 and E3 units are designed to be flexible in their application and where they can be installed. All units are water resistant and can be installed both indoors and outdoors (when properly equipped). We have multiple installation and filter options available and encourage you to contact us with your application so we can guide you to the best unit design and placement.
The mobile units can be rolled into any indoor facility, plugged in and turned on for immediate use. The unit is most effective if it is positioned at the end or midpoint of a long room, preferably against a wall. Clean air will discharge high into the room and sweep contaminants down and low into the filters. The mobile E-series units can come equipped with one of three different air discharge options: grille (standard), omni-directional nozzles or ducted collars.
The mounted E1 and E3 units can be installed inside or outside a facility. For a greenhouse or indoor grow, the units can be set up to feed 100% fresh air into the unit, recirculate 100% of the room air or a combination of both. The unit can be installed vertically (similar to the mobile units) or horizontally, and it can be hung from most any weight supporting structure. The unit weighs less than 200 pounds, allowing for it to be supported by most structures if correctly installed. In all cases, we recommend drawing dirty air from down low (within 12” of the floor) and discharging clean air high into the facility. Contact us for recommendations and options.
The E-Guardian system comes integrated as part of the E2/E3 units (optional on E3 unit) or as a standalone product. The standalone E-Guardian system is configured as a base unit with integrated display and a remote sensor that can be installed up to 10 meters (33 feet) away from the base unit. The sensor can be co-located near the base unit, or it can be installed in a separate room. In the case of an indoor agriculture facility, the sensor can be located in the plant room and the base unit display located outside the room in a corridor or other central traffic area for ease of access without disturbing the growing environment unnecessarily. The E-Guardian is also an excellent air particle monitoring system for measuring air cleanliness in a lab or food production facility.
The integrated E-Guardian in the E2 and E3 units does everything the standalone unit does but can also manually operate the onboard fan speed of the unit. It can be set to autonomously monitor contamination and control the fan when a contamination anomaly is detected.
The base unit is water resistant and can be sanitized/washed down safely when the ethernet port is capped. The sensor is not meant for direct water spray or to be sanitized and can be damaged if water enters the sensor case. Prior to sanitizing or washing down a room or unit, the sensor should be removed and placed into a safe location. When the space or unit is clean and dry, reinstall the sensor. Please contact us if you have questions on the best way to install the base unit and sensor or would like guidance with installation.
The E-series air filtration units and E-Guardian products are both IIoT devices with extremely robust industrial hardware that allows Puren Solutions to roll out new features and product improvements on a regular basis. When you buy a cell phone, you expect the product to continue to receive updates for improved performance, security or enhanced features. The Puren Solutions products are no different. We are currently in development of additional features which may include new sensors, unlocked hardware, monitoring/analytical functions and energy-saving features that will continue to better serve our customers and set us apart from competition. Puren Solutions products are robust, durable and future-proofed for the life of the product.
