Simplified Unobstructed Air Flow
In other systems air moves around different chambers and changes direction. Airpura Air Purifier technology simplifies air flow for quieter more efficient performance and reduced noise.
Vacuum through the mesh for monthly maintenance, then replace the pre-filters every 12 months.
2 Micro-Suppress Filters
Special microbial (bacteria and viruses) suppressing filters help to protect the carbon bed.
Powerful, Variable Speed Integrated Fan/Motor
You choose the rate you clean your air from super quiet to premium power filtering with 560 CFM capacity.
Effective Pressure Sealed Filter Chamber
All of the air is filtered. No particles or gases escape the filters. Other systems allow leakage and can't achieve the claimed 99.97% HEPA efficiency.
Cleanest Air Using a Combination of True HEPA and Activated Carbon and Optional UV Sterilization
Superior quality true HEPA and activated carbon with optional UV sterilization delivers truly clean air for home, office and industrial application.
The 570 square inch x 1 inch deep pre-filter traps larger dust and particles. It may be vacuumed from the exterior of the unit. It acts to stop the larger particles such as dust and lint from clogging the other filters.
The hefty 40 sq. ft. true HEPA filter traps airborne particles. These filters were developed by the Atomic Energy Commission to trap radio-active particles. They can capture 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. That is as small as some bacteria.
Activated carbon is one of two safe, cost effective ways to trap noxious airborne chemicals, gases and odors. Activated carbon is the substance that keeps military personnel safe from poisonous gases. It is also used for water filtration.
An activated carbon filter acts rather like a sponge. When it is full it can absorb no more. The bigger the filter (the more carbon you have), the more chemicals it absorbs and the longer it keeps on working, so you don't have to frequently replace the carbon filter.
The carbon filters used in Airpura Air Purifiers have from 18 to 26 pounds of activated carbon that will trap 60% of its own weight in chemicals, gases and odors. They will keep on absorbing harmful chemicals for 24 months in typical use. Plus the 2 Micro-Suppress filters on each side of the carbon bed kill microbes that may collect on them.
The activated carbon filters used in the Airpura Air Purifier have been treated with oxygen to open up millions of tiny pores between the carbon atoms. There are so many of these spores that one pound of activated carbon has a surface area of 60 to 150 acres. Absorption is the process where certain chemicals are attracted to activated carbon and then bond to it. The millions of pores in the activated carbon provide an enormous surface area to trap these chemicals. Many air purifiers on the market offer only a spray of carbon sprayed on the pre-filter. This is only sufficient to capture a small amount of gases and odors and soon fills up.
An investigation into 62 laser printers revealed that 17 of them - almost 30 per cent - released high amounts of minute toner particles into the air. Professor Lidia Morawska from the Queensland University of Technology, who led the research, said: "Ultra-fine particles are of most concern because they can penetrate deep into the lungs where they can pose a significant health threat. These printer particles are tiny, like cigarette smoke particles, and when deep inside the lung they do the same amount of damage. Read article: Some Top Laser Printers Called Office Polluters
If you or someone in your family has allergies or asthma or other symptoms of respiratory distress, an Airpura high efficiency air purifier with a HEPA filter can make a difference. If the problem is chemical fumes, VOCs or odors, a Carbon Filter is best. Most Airpura Air Purifiers have multiple technologies so you get the best of all worlds. The available models, in white, cream or black, are:
Airpura P600 Ultraviolet Oxidation, HEPA and Carbon Air Purifier
With the addition of a 17" Germicidal Ultraviolet Lamp and Titanium Dioxide catalyst, the P600 has it all for maximum purification. It cleans the air of VOCs, airborne chemicals, odors, particulate (pollen, dust, dust mites, dander, etc.) and microorganisms (molds, yeasts, bacteria and viruses). more info
Airpura HEPA Air Purifiers for Allergies and Asthma
Airpura has five models with HEPA filters: the I600 with a 3" HEPA filter and the H600, R600, UV600 an V600 all have 2" HEPA Filters. HEPA filters are best for people with allergies and asthma because they offer the fastest way to remove airborne particulate from the air (dust, pollen, dust mites, dander, mold spores, asbestos fibers, droplets, etc.). For odor and chemical elimination, these models also include either a Carbon Weave or 18 lb. carbon filter. All include a prefilter, which can be vacuumed from the outside of the unit, to trap larger particles. more info
Airpura Chemical and VOC Carbon Air Purifiers
Airpura has several models with carbon filters that can deal with over 4000 chemicals and VOCs. The Airpura AP-C600 features a 3" deep, 570 square inch surface, 26 pound carbon bed to absorb chemicals and gases. The Airpura AP-V600 has a 18 pound super carbon for formaldehyde and ammonia. more info
Airpura T600 Tobacco Smoke Eliminator
Airpura T600 Tobacco Smoke Eliminator Air Cleaner is specifically designed to deal with tobacco smoke. It features a special Tar Barrier pre-filter combined with a deep 26 pound carbon bed to absorb the chemicals and gases found in tobacco smoke. more info
HVAC Induct Airpura Models for Central Air Systems
The Airpura Whole House air purification units can be easily installed into your central air system. The W600 series draws a portion of the main airflow as a by-pass, purifies it and returns the clean air into the system. Airpura's efficient 560 CFM fan motor ensures that no change in air pressure takes place in your central air system. Even when your central air system is turned off the Airpura W600 can continue to filter and distribute clean air throughout your home. The continuous purification of the W600's high efficiency filtration system will clean the air in your home and eliminate any new pollutants introduced in the normal course of everyday activities. With the W600's variable speed control, you choose the level of purification required: from OFF to MAX.
