Shaun Keating, President and CEO of Keating Dental Arts, a full-service dental laboratory based in Irvine, CA, is positively effusive when it comes to the craft of dental appliance. “We make teeth for a living,” he says. “It’s kind of a neat job.”
But what wasn’t so neat?
All the fine silica dust in the facility’s air, a result of grinding appliances and molds. “There’s two things you worry about as a dental technician: your eyes…and you also have to wear a mask, because there are a lot of flying particles that are invisible,” he says.
It was a hazard of working in a dental lab, where suction machines attached to grinders could only do so much. Instead, the majority of the dust floated through the air, settling on clothes, skin, hair and every surface. “I needed something better than what we had,” Keating says.
Enter AeraMax Professional. AeraMax Professional has a complete line of commercial-grade air purifiers, designed to remove up to 99.97 percent of airborne contaminants, like dust, germs, allergens, viruses, VOCs and more, from indoor air. Using an advanced four-stage filtration system with True HEPA filters, the portable or wall-mounted units effectively and efficiently “scrub” indoor air.
Keating set up AeraMax Professional units throughout the entire laboratory of more than 20,000 square feet. He says the effect was almost instantaneous, mentioning that people could smell the difference in the air. “You can’t afford not to do this,” he says. “It’s a whole night-and-day difference from what it used to be.”
