Nail Salon IMC Ventilation Code Compliance
The HealthyAir® Source Capture Fan-Filter Exhauster fully complies with, and exceeds, IMC Ventilation Code requirements for Nail Salons.
For Nail Salons IMC 2015/IMC 2018 generally requires:
- a minimum of 50 cfm of air extraction from each nail station
- at least one exhaust inlet per nail station located <12” from the point of chemical application
- exhaust of all extracted air from the nail salon to the outdoor atmosphere
Added benefits of system use include:
- The clean air output of each system can be applied to the total 0.6 cfm/ft2 that is required to be exhausted from overall salon air, which in turn conserves energy
- Prevents contaminated air from re-entering the salon and/or entering adjacent environments, including neighboring businesses or residences
- Prevents nail dust from accumulating in ductwork and creating potential hazards

Recommend Nail Salon Use
(1) HealthyAir® Source Capture Fan-Filter Exhauster Dual Inlet system is capable of serving (2) adjacent nail stations.
The HealthyAir® Source Capture Fan-Filter Exhauster may be operated as a Recirculating System or as an Outside Venting System. The out-of-the-box default configuration of the unit is for Recirculating Ventilation.
Recirculating Ventilation means the unit is designed to take in contaminated air though the extraction hose, filter contaminants, and discharge purified air from the exhaust vent, located on the bottom of the unit, back into the facility.
Outside Ventilation – IMC Ventilation Code Compliance
The components required to setup the unit for Outside Venting come with the unit, as outlined in the manual. When configured for Outside Ventilation, the system is designed to take in contaminated air though the extraction hose, filter contaminants, and discharge treated air out of the facility via an exhaust duct connection to the 4” dia. outlet port of the unit.
Weight, Dimensions & Installation
The approximate weight and base dimensions of the unit is: 40 lbs. - 12”l x 14”w x 21”h
The standard extraction arm hose length is 45”. Custom length hose is available, for information and pricing please contact us.
This portable floor unit is designed to be positioned in close proximity to the work station, however in some cases remote location of units is required. For customized layouts, please contact us for engineering and design recommendations.
By easily adjusting the flexible hose, the hoods of the extraction arms can be strategically positioned, approximately 6”-12” from the work area, to capture contaminates from the emission source.
The HA-SCE-G1 offers simple remote-control operation and is equipped with a three-speed fan that enables control of air flow and sound level.
Maintenance of the unit is simple and does not require the use of any tools.
Filter Model & Replacement
The HealthyAir® Source Capture Fan-Filter Exhauster utilizes the HA-PF7-1111 High-Capacity Pocket Filter. Each unit comes with (1) pre-installed filter.
The recommend filter replacement cycle is 12 months on average. However, the need for filter replacement naturally varies depending on the frequency and nature of use.
When the unit has been in operation for 400-hours, the Filter Change indicator light, on the Control Panel, will begin to flash. This serves as a reminder to inspect and/or replace the filter.
The Filter Change Timer can be reset by following the reset protocol outlined in the manual.
The following replacement filter is compatible with this unit:
