AAR Named a Distributor for AirManager System

AAR has been appointed as a distributor for the new AirManager air filtration system developed by Quest International to eliminate potentially harmful airborne contaminates. U.S.-based AAR will be helping the UK’s Quest to find new applications for the active air filtration and sterilization system, which is based on close-coupled field technology.

In addition to distributing the product to its worldwide network of commercial airline, government and defense customers, AAR will provide design engineering services and manage the supplemental type certificate processes required to install and operate the product on a variety of commercial aircraft.

AirManager can be installed in existing air filtration systems. The device uses patented CCFT, a safe and contained electrical field, to destroy and break down airborne pathogens, contaminants and toxins at the molecular level. Chemical and viral contaminants are essential disassembled when subjected to the disruptive effects of this electrical field. Remaining particles are captured by electrostatic filters prior to the air being released.

“The key to the AirManager system is the variety of contaminants it can destroy and the speed at which it can process and produce clean air,” said David Hallam, managing director of Quest International and inventor of the AirManager system. “The scalable system has achieved a 99.999-percent single-pass kill rate on biohazards and can filter out particles as small as 0.1 micron, with very little power consumption.”

Quest launched AirManager in the aviation sector last November. It is also partnered with BAE Systems, which has helped bring the system to market, and the UK group is also acting as a distributor.
