MTI’s air bath system is inherently hygienic and engineered to withstand the rigorous demands of the hospitality industry. Specially designed plastic protective jet housings, unique to MTI, prevent bath water from coming into contact with the fiberglass backing of the bath. Sealed in each housing is a built-in backflow prevention check valve that is designed to keep bath water from entering the air lines. Finally, 7 minutes after the water has drained from the tub, an automatic purge cycle engages for one minute to remove any water that might be remaining in the air jets. This ensures that the next bath will be sanitary and fresh, even after a soaking bath or a shower. The combination of features described here simply cannot be found in other systems on the market.

Some competing air baths use air distribution ports or a channel system around the perimeter of the bathing well. With both systems, only a percentage of the air bubbles rising will actually come in contact with the body, and the aesthetics of the bathing vessel are affected. The channel system has the additional disadvantage of providing uneven air distribution, which is especially noticeable at lower speeds, and it is also difficult to keep sanitary because the bath water drains into the channel, oftentimes being exposed to porous fiberglass.

MTI is committed to providing air bath systems that provide state-of-the-art thermo-air massage as well as safe, sanitary bathing.
