  • Product Overview

    Mold, mildew, and other contaminants are common problems in restoration projects. Using a high-quality air scrubber can alleviate this problem. The Dri-Eaz DefendAir HEPA 500 Air Scrubber and negative air machine uses a two-stage system to filter your air. First, air moves through a pre-filter designed to gather large particles. Next, the air moves through an independently tested and verified top-quality HEPA filter. This filter traps 99.97% of the smallest airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. The Dri-Eaz HEPA 500 is highly efficient, extremely versatile, and features an impressively small footprint. This air scrubber is ideal for any restoration job including but not limited to those involving sewage repairs, mold remediation, fire damage restoration, water damage restoration, and more.

    Key Features

    Easy to use and quick to set up, the Dri-Eaz DefendAir HEPA 500 Air Scrubber features:

    • 2 Speeds: Choose from dual speeds to maximize filtration and airflow.
    • Filter Change Indicator: This light illuminates when it's time to change the HEPA filter.
    • Microban Anti-Microbial Protection: Helps inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and odors inside the machine.
    • Daisy Chain-Capable: Interconnect up to 3 air scrubbers to increase airflow and clean your air faster. Each air scrubber is also stackable for space-saving operation.
    • Easy Transport: Lightweight, the Dri-Eaz HEPA 500 is easy to transport and store with its top-situated carrying handle.
    • Optional Carbon Filter: Add the Dri-Eaz DefendAir HEPA 500 Carbon Filter (sold separately) to remove harmful odors, smoke, VOCs, chemicals, and gases at your job site.

    Ideal for a Variety of Restoration Jobs

    The DefendAir HEPA 500 is ideal for handling indoor air quality needs in nearly every restoration job. Restoration that involves sewage, mold, or fire damage involves significant amounts of particulates and odorous gasses, a direct result of the damage itself. In a water damage restoration environment, the high-velocity airflow needed for drying can stir up particulates that have settled in carpet or on other materials. The Dri-Eaz HEPA 500 Air Scrubber addresses these air quality issues quickly and effectively, helping you to maintain a clean, odor-free indoor environment.

        Comments about Dri-Eaz HEPA 500 Air Scrubber:

        I purchased the product to help cleanse our home from fiberglass contamination. There was nothing written out there on how to remedy a fiberglass air contamination. My father-in-law recommended this product. The air has definitely cleared up. We are giving it a rest at the moment. It is loud, but it is effective. I have been able to go into places where I couldn't before without coughing. It's worth the money to have clean air in our home. Don't take that privilege lightly.

        Very efficient in removal particulates

        By MiaoZhen Li

        from USA

        Comments about Dri-Eaz HEPA 500 Air Scrubber:

        My friend bought one of this for his business. He's a carpenter. With this thing in operation, I have no problem breathing in his garage work area--I have severe allegy and am very sensitive to airborne particulates. He told me how much he loved this machine. The best thing about it is that it has the cover which when not in operation, can be put on to seal the contaminants inside; will not leak out everywhere like many other air scrubber. I am actually thinking about getting one of theseand use it as an air purifier at home. But the look and size make it kind of awkward sitting in house....I will have to think about it: for efficiency I am sure it's better than those designed for home use because this type of industrial machine is also intended to remove hazardous airborne asbestos and lead, it CAN'T fail and must work. For those designed for home use only, you have to turn it on 24 hours a day because when it stops, the trapped airborne particles will fly out and contaminate the surrounding again. But this machine is quite ugly for home use for sure: look how elegant the Rabbit Air Purifier is!; but it works perfectly well--here is a dilemma.
