[Histonet] Air Purifier for Xylene

We have the Newcomer purifier for Formaldehyde and xylene.  It has been working well for us.  People used to walk in and say they could smell xylene (even though we were well under STEL and PEL).  Since installing the filter, those same people come in and say nothing.  Also, our industrial hygiene person was in here looking at it and said it looked like a very good one.   The only problem may be finding a place to put it.  Ours is currently sitting in the middle of the lab like an island.
Good luck and enjoy the clean air.

Dear Netters,

Has anyone used an air purifier made specifically for formaldehyde and
xylene fumes?  I know Newcomer Supply has started distributing the
system.  Does anyone have any feedback on the Newcomer system or any
other air purifying system?

Thanks for your feedback,
