ARCHITECTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL A ir purification or fume extraction systems are an important piece of any business, especially if their equip- ment spews noxious fumes or fine par- ticulates into the air. It isn't enough to just vent these fumes outside, says Kevin East, president of Fumex, LLC, because that is "not puri- fying or capturing any of the harmful particulates generated in the process or protecting the environment." Wayne Baird, president of PAT Technology Systems, Inc., says there are two types of fume extractors: one is con- nected to the host by a hose and the other is a whole room purifier. There are roof purifiers as well, but Baird doesn't believe they do a good job because "by the time the odor or particulate is in the room, it is too late," he says.
