Legend Brands Introduces Dri-Eaz® HEPA 2000 to Meet Air Filtration Demand

In response to a skyrocketing demand for high-performance HEPA air filtration as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Legend Brands introduced its innovative new Dri-Eaz® HEPA 2000 air scrubber—designed for positive and negative air filtration, as well as whisper-quiet operation in occupied areas.

"Schools, hospitality venues and healthcare environments are focusing now more than ever on indoor air quality," said Steve LeVeau, vice president of marketing at Legend Brands. "The HEPA 2000's high-volume, HEPA-grade air filtration capabilities help meet this critical need."

The unit's adjustable airflow, easy portability and 7.7 amp draw—half that of competitive units—make it possible to deliver efficient HEPA filtration in virtually any enclosed space. Plus, it qualifies for Xactimate’s highest HEPA rental rate.

Featuring corrosion-resistant, marine-grade aluminum housing with easy-roll locking casters, the HEPA 2000 utilizes a MERV-11 pleated HVAC prefilter and a HEPA filter, with a built-in light to prompt HEPA filter replacement as needed. The HEPA filter is rated to remove up to 99.97% 0.3 micron oily aerosol particles, meeting the HEPA filtration standard.
