Technology That Makes Airpura Your Best Choice

Ultraviolet Germicidal Lamp in Airpura UV Models

Cross-Section of Airpura HEPA Air Purifer with UV

20 watt UV lamp

30,000 µm per sec squared

Sterilizes

mold spores, micro-organisms antigens
and pathogens

Lamp situated in filter chamber

Kills organisms as they are trapped by the filters.
Other UV machines place the UV lamp in the
air flow away from the filters. Microbes can escape
back into the air.

The Airpura High Efficiency Filtration System

Each Airpura model has been configured to focus on a particular air quality situation. For example, some are best for odors and chemicals, others for pathogens. Regardless of the variations between the models, each Airpura shares these features:

The 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 activated carbon bed adsorbs airborne chemicals, gases and odors. Many air purifiers 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.

Airpura carbon filters have from 18 to 30 pounds of activated carbon that will trap 60% of its own weight in airborne chemicals, gases and odors. They will keep on adsorbing harmful chemicals for 24 months in typical use.

The two Micro-supress filters on each side of the carbon bed kill microbes that may collect on them.

The True HEPA filter or SuperHEPA filter traps airborne particles. These filters were developed by the Atomic Energy Commission to trap radio-active particles. True HEPA filters can capture 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. Airpura's SuperHEPA filter exceeds the HEPA standard by capturing 99.99% of these particles. That is as small as some bacteria.

Adsorption with Activated Carbon

Activated Carbon is the only safe, cost effective way to trap noxious gases and odors. Activated carbon is the substance that keeps military personnel safe from poisonous gases. It is also used for water filtration.

Activated carbon has 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. Adsorption 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.

The bigger the filter, the more chemicals it adsorbs and the longer it keeps on working. An activated carbon filter acts rather like a sponge. When it is full it can adsorb no more. The more carbon you have the more you can adsorb before changing the filter.
