Activated Carbon, Super HEPA / HEPA, UV Light
Air Purifier Filtration Process:
Activated Carbon for Air Cleaning
Activated carbon is recognized as the safest and most efficient way to treat airborne chemicals, gaseous pollutants, fumes and odors. Carbon that is activated undergoes a process that opens millions of tiny pores and fissures to enhance the material's adsorbent properties.
A single pound of activated carbon typically has a surface area of 125 acres. In fact, activated carbon is so effective that it is used by the military to combat the world’s most dangerous airborne pollutants.
Super HEPA - Reinventing the HEPA filter
HEPA Filters (HIGH EFFICIENCY PARTICULATE ARRESTANCE) describes a filter that can remove at least 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns in diameter. Particles of this size are used to evaluate the performance of a HEPA filter, because they are among the most difficult to remove. True HEPA filters are composed of a dense web of fibers and are considered the safest and most efficient method to treat and eliminate airborne particles.
Super HEPA can filter out 99.99% of airborne particles 0.1 microns in diameter.
HEPA filters have essentially not changed in 50 years. While effective at trapping particles, they remain a fragile mass of fibers with a glue-like bonding agent, caged in metal to protect it from damage. We knew there had to something better. AllerAir has pioneered the use of Super HEPA. Our exclusive particle filter captures 99.99% of airborne particles and contains no bonding agents. It’s safe and easy to handle, cannot be damaged in transport and is safe for people sensitive to chemicals and odors.
UV Germicidal Lamps
Many of our units can be customized with a UV (ultra violet) germicidal lamp. This technology is favored by the healthcare industry, food storage warehouses, laboratories and other facilities where microorganisms, bacteria, viruses or mold are an issue. UV works by breaking down microorganisms and disrupting their DNA, hindering their ability to reproduce.
When biological contaminants enter a home or building, they can quickly spread and may cause or aggravate health problems such as allergies, nausea, respiratory diseases and asthma. An air purifier with a Super HEPA filter and activated carbon can trap many of these contaminants, but an air purifier with Super HEPA filter and a UV light is even more effective.
UV disinfection is an effective way to decontaminate the air. The germicidal light breaks down harmful micro-organisms that pass through the rays, converting otherwise irritating pathogens, pollen and mold spores into harmless inert byproducts.
Ultraviolet light has been scientifically proven to reduce mold, fungus, viruses and other microscopic organisms that thrive indoors. It does not leave any residue or odors and the method has been used for decades by the medical industry to neutralize harmful micro-organisms. The food processing industry also utilizes UV light to keep bacteria such as listeria at bay.
