HOW ARTIST’S AIR WORKS
ARTIST’S AIR quietly removes impurities from between you and your artwork, where harmful substances would otherwise collect and be inhaled. Clean air naturally replaces it, leaving you with healthier air to breathe. Most impurities created by artists are heavier than air and tend to drift downward or with air currents.
ARTIST’S AIR is portable and can be quickly set up to either side of your workspace. This affordable system filters your studio air, rather than venting it outside. That saves you heating and cooling expenses and conserves energy resources.
ARTIST’S AIR collection unit fits virtually any easel. However, the collection unit can be used on a table, horizontally or vertically, for artists working in other media.
WHY ARTIST’S AIR
Most studio artists use toxic materials. Oil painters commonly work with harmful solvents, including turpentine and odorless petroleum distillates. Many poisonous substances have no odor. Pastel and ceramic artists generate potentially harmful dusts, including heavy-metal particles. Acrylic and gouache painters release small amounts of formaldehyde, ammonia, and gum binders into their environment. Jewelry makers release cleaning solvent by-products when soldering.
All of these, plus other dusts, chemicals, and many bacteria and viruses are filtered from your environment by ARTIST’S AIR. It incorporates the same filters used by many hospitals and other medical facilities.
Harmful substances, if not eliminated, will pollute the air not only in your studio, but also in any attached rooms and the surrounding environment. ARTIST’S AIR is an efficient and cost effective solution for a space up to 1200 square feet.
HOW THE FILTERS WORK
ARTIST’S AIR is
constructed of durable steel with a flat black powder-coat finish. It uses
a four-phase filtering system.
4) The true HEPA filter traps airborne particles. These filters were developed by the Atomic Energy Commission. They can capture 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. That is as small as some bacteria and viruses.
HOW The CARBON FILTER WORKS
Activated carbon has been treated with oxygen to open up millions of tiny pores between the carbon atoms. There are so many of these that one pound of activated carbon has a working surface area of 60 to 150 acres.
Certain chemicals are attracted to activated carbon and then bond to it. The millions of pores in the activated carbon provide an enormous surface area to trap these chemicals. In addition, Vocarb is specially treated to trap volatile organic compounds, such as a painter's solvents.
CLEAN INDOOR AIR IS ESSENTIAL FOR GOOD HEALTH
ARTIST’S AIR is an investment that will help you, and quite possibly your family and pets, lead longer, healthier lives and avoid the distress and expenses of allergies and other toxin-related health problems.
Don’t wait for symptoms to occur. Be pro-active with your health.
If dusts are your only problem, ARTIST’S AIR is available without a carbon filter.
We offer a one-year warranty and a generous return policy.

• ARTIST’S AIR will
collect and filter out most impurities as they are released from an average
or small-sized painting. However, even under ideal conditions nothing
collects and filters 100 percent of the impurities as they are created.
The system will continue to collect and filter any vapors and dust that
escape into the studio. Processing up to 350 cubic feet per minute, it
can handle a space of approximately 1200 square feet. We recommend that
artists leave the fan on low when not working to continually clean their
• If more than one person is painting in a studio, each painter should have an ARTIST’S AIR at their easel. The system is not designed to handle the impurities produced by more than one painter at a time.
