Client need

Professional hockey players require top-notch equipment always in the best of condition. As such, their skates are being sharpened constantly. In the skate sharpening process, fine metal filings become an airborne hazard to the staff working in the sharpening rooms. These filings can be easily inhaled into their lungs, causing severe harm. The San Jose Sharks needed a solution to the airborne health hazard.

In 2018, the San Jose Sharks installed Surgically Air Purifier units in their main arena and practice facility. It was fitted with a unique washable filter perfectly suited to cleaning these fine metal filings from the air in the skate sharpening room.
