Carrier shares higher after launch of air scrubber for schools
Carrier Global shares are moving higher after the company announced the launch of its OptiClean 1500-cfm Dual-Mode Air Scrubber & Negative Air Machine. The company said the product is "ideal for helping to maintain clean and healthy indoor air quality in classrooms, cafeterias, libraries, gymnasiums, restrooms and more." The new unit joins the existing OptiClean 500-cfm unit, which was launched in April "to help create infectious isolation rooms in hospitals treating COVID-19 patients and is now used in hospitals and dental offices and is ideally suited for individual classroom use." The OptiClean 1500 draws air from inside larger spaces, removes many contaminants and discharges cleaner, filtered air, according to Carrier. The stock in midday trading is up 4% to $24.86.
