Awal Gulf Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer of commercial and residential air-conditioning and refrigeration units based out of Bahrain, has launched its innovative air purification unit ‘Pearl’ that uses state-of-the-art design technology to deliver fresh air through efficient filtration system.

The Pearl air purifier is powered by a portable multi-layered high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters designed to remove viruses and bacteria from the air providing enhanced level of respiratory protection. The air purifier also uses the latest UV-C technology that thoroughly decontaminate the indoor air by killing up to 99.999 per cent of airborne viruses and infections, the company said in a statement.

Ghassan Freiwat, Deputy CEO of Awal Gulf Manufacturing said: “The world is currently passing through an unprecedented time and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has never been so critical to the health and safety of the people. Clean air is specifically vital in hospitals, clinics and healthcare facilities to protect patients, staff and visitors from airborne diseases and infections. We at Awal Gulf Manufacturing believe that as leaders and experts in the HVACR industry for almost 50 years we have got a role to play in creating a safer, cleaner and efficient environment.”

“We are pleased to launch our all new Pearl air purifier with a filtration efficiency of 99.999 per cent down to 0.3 micron particles, H14 as per EN1822. The unit is now available to order through a select dealer’s network across Europe, Middle East & Africa,” he added.

The unit is a simple plug and play system with no integration into the existing mechanical systems. The system draws in contaminated air and removes all bacteria and viruses through a series of integral filters and then delivers clean air back into space. The unit can be placed in the common areas, hospitals and ancillary healthcare facilities including research labs and pharmaceutical plants. The unit application is not limited to the healthcare vertical only, but can also be used in educational institutes and other residential and commercial applications, the company said.
