How do Source Capture Systems work?

HealthyAir Source Capture Systems with patented eHEPA filtration technology offer all the benefits of an advanced room air purifier while providing targeted precision to effectively extract airborne contaminants at the source of emission where the concentration of these harmful contaminants is highest.

By targeting the source of emission, our systems effectively protect you by extracting harmful substances before they reach your respiratory system (breathing zone - nose, throat and lungs) and sensory organs (eyes and skin).

As contaminated air is captured it is passed through the unit in a multi-stage filtration process that implements the 5 filtration methods of Sieving, Direct Impact, Inertial Impaction, Diffusion, and Electrostatic. 

Why are Source Capture Systems important for hair salons?

Source Capture Systems are efficient air cleaning machines because they target the source of emission and treat a smaller volume of highly concentrated contaminated air, thereby preventing airborne contaminants from spreading into the general air space.

Additionally, when properly used source capture systems reduce exposure to airborne contaminants by collecting these substances before they reach the sensory systems of the individual.

What types of HealthyAir Systems are used in hair salons and barber shops?

HealthyAir offers portable floor units and ceiling-mount units.

Portable floor units are more widely used in hair salons across the US as they are generally more cost-effective and offer greater flexibility.

Portable hair salon source capture fume extractor can easily be move from stylist chair to stylist chair within a salon.

On the other hand, Ceiling-Mount Fume Extractors offer the benefit of freeing floor space in smaller salons.

What is the setup process for the Source Capture Fume Extractor?

HealthyAir Systems are essentially ready to operate out-of-the box and require minimal setup when used as portable air cleaning machines.

Setup of portable units is simple.

  1. Unbox the unit
  2. Screw on the caster wheels
  3. Attach the hood to the extraction hose
  4. Secure the extraction hose support mechanism to the base of the unit
  5. Attach the extraction hose
  6. Remove the plastic wrapping from the filter
  7. Plug the unit into standard wall electrical outlet to power and begin operating

Setup of portable units takes approximately 20-30 min and the only tool required is the screw driver that comes with the unit.

Managing Chemical Exposure and Health Risks

HealthyAir® Source Capture® Fume Extractors are engineered to meet OSHA salon ventilation guidelines to reduce occupational health hazards, improve indoor air quality and provide healthier salon experiences for hair stylists and clients.
Joins the thousands of hair technicians in the USA, Canada and overseas that benefit from utilizing HealthyAir® Fume Extractos.

Hair stylists and clients are often exposed to unsafe levels of chemicals during routine hair treatments that are performed in poorly ventilated salon spaces.

Keratin hair smoothing services (Brazilian blowouts) release formaldehyde vapors into the air when heat is applied during the blow drying and flat ironing of hair, as well as during application of keratin hair smoothing products which contain formaldehyde releasing ingredients.

Repeated overexposure to formaldehyde vapors can cause "sensory irritation", (i.e. burning / watery eyes, scratchy throat and runny nose). Other symptoms may include difficulty breathing, occupation-related asthma and other related skin allergic sensitivity.

To mitigate exposure to hazardous vapors, and minimize the potential for "sensory irritation" and adverse health reactions, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends the use of local Source Capture and general ventilation systems to reduce the concentration of airborne contaminants in the breathing zones of salon workers.

The easiest and most efficient way to protect hair stylists from vapors and aerosols entering the "breathing zone" - define as the two-foot radius in front of the mouth, is to provide the hair stylist with a Source Capture Fume Extraction System.

The HealthyAir® Source Capture Fume Extraction System effectively functions to draw in airborne contaminants, filtering these substances, and discharging filtered air away from the "breathing zone".

Benefits and system features include:

  • eHEPA® patented filtration technology sets the industry standard and eliminates the need for multiple air filtration devices with 3-In-1 With HealthyAir® eHEPA® filtration technology.
  • Simultaneously capture and deactivate toxic fumes, microorganisms (airborne pathogens), and harmful aerosols and fine-particulate.
  • Portable flood units offer convenience a cost-effective solutions by enabling a single unit to be shared and easily re-located to various styling chairs.
  • Ceiling-Mount units offer fixed-positioning to free valuable floor space in smaller salons and salon suite settings.

HealthyAir® Source Capture® Systems

HealthyAir® Source Capture® Fume Extractors remove harmful vapors and fumes to reduce occupational health hazards and create healthier salon environments for stylists and clients.

Common hair treatment products and process generate unwanted byproducts. When working in poorly ventilated, often small and confined spaces, hair stylists are exposed to airborne chemicals linked to respiratory health issues and sensory irritation.

In addition to focusing on removal of chemical fumes, HealthyAir® patented eHEPA also collects and kills microorganisms. This feature serves to further improve indoor air quality, especially in times when windows and doors are shut and ventilation is further restricted in salons and salon suites.
