What is Katharsis?
Katharsis is an Australian made air filtration unit, using a combination of proven technologies, each alone capable of providing a measure of protection, to provide vastly superior results and give “peace of mind” for building owners and managers.
There are a range of “COVID-19 air filters” being talked about at the moment, all in the name of helping us open up and get people back to work and enjoying normal life. C6 Group have spent the last 12 months working with IFM at Deakin University to develop the most effective air filtration solution, not just a quick fix. The most effective system needs to work with the airflow patterns of the room. For bigger spaces like classrooms, offices, hospitals and entertainment spaces, you need a lot of air movement to actually have an effect.
Katharsis has been developed to be integrated with a building’s existing air filtration system, which has already been engineered for the right amount of fresh air to be brought into the building. With its own onboard fan to compensate for the extra resistance, the return air from a room will be cleaned before it comes back into the building, supplying fresh air for the ventilation system. This is the most effective way to have people safely enjoying the same space together.
Most of the other systems on the market being sold as a “COVID filtration” product have been an add on to an air purification unit. They generally have a limited range of effect across an entire room as they are a standalone unit sitting in the corner, not able to test enough air. They are also too small to effectively remove COVD-19 from the air and make a room safe for people to gather.
For buildings that only run a heating and cooling split system, Katharsis can also be installed free standing.
