Air Quality Engineering - AQE

In 1973, Smokemaster, Inc. began producing air filtration systems for the removal of tobacco smoke. The next year, they began manufacturing commercial air cleaning products for a leading name in that field and became Air Quality Engineering.

Over the past 30 years, AQE has manufactured most of their air cleaners to utilize the Coanda Airflow Pattern, which theorizes a 360° circulation of room air to ensure optimal airflow patterns. AQE have manufactured their smoke eater equipment to be highly efficient, cost effective, and reliable.  The most popular Air Quality Engineering smoke eater brands are: Smokemaster, EverClear, and MiracleAir.  Although they started out primarily dealing with commercial smoke eaters, Air Quality Engineering also manufactures a variety of mist eliminators, dust collectors, and fume extractors, delving into the industrial market with the same principles that made them so popular amongst the commercial and hospitality industry.
