About Controlled Air Design

Based in Raleigh, NC but with distribution that serves the entire USA. Controlled Air Design is your source for smart solutions for eliminating dust fume and mist from industrial processes.

Some of our valuable clients:


We don't have a “BUY-IT-NOW” function on our website because we believe that buying something like an XP vac always requires a detailed conversation about the application. We always answer the phone. Before, during, and after you have purchased the equipment. 

Who we are:
