Aerator/Blower A device used to expose air to chemical or mechanical action.

Air Compressor A device which pressurizes ambient air and delivers it through a distribution network which includes pneumatic controls and power tools.

Air Filters, washable and disposable Used to remove particulates from air.

Air Filters, roll type A high capacity prefilter system which provides clean filter media in a vertical or horizontal manner which is either manually or motorized advanced.

Air Filters, Hepa High Efficiency particulate aerosol designed to remove airborne material up to 99.97% efficiency.

Air Conditioner, Built Up A direct expansion system that uses an open compressor to circulate refrigerant. The evaporator and condenser are usually remote of the compressor.

Air Conditioner, Packaged A direct expansion system that uses a hermetic or semi-hermetic compressor to circulate refrigerant. The compressor, evaporator metering device and condenser form one assembly. This can include room and rooftop units.
