9 Separate air filtration and purification technologies
Advanced Pure Air™ combines 9 separate technologies to sanitize, disinfect, and purify the air. This assures ours customers have the cleanest, highest quality air available. It is only with the use of all of these technologies that we can provide you with the healthiest, cleanest, most odor free, home, office and vehicle environments available. Watch the video below to learn more.
Ultraviolet Light (UVC)
Most Advanced Pure Air™ air purifiers are equipped with Ultraviolet (UV) Light Air Purification. UV light is highly effective in helping fight biological based diseases caused by viruses, bacteria, and mold. UV light, in the right concentration and the correct wavelengths, can kill many harmful microorganisms. Advanced Pure Air™ uses a UV lamp operating at 254-nanometer wavelength to irradiate the airflow passing through our air purifiers. It is important to note that the Advanced Pure Air™ air purifiers shield UV light from escaping the unit, exposing direct UV light only to the air that passes through the air purifier making them safe to use anywhere.
Activated Oxygen or Ozone production is particularly effective against odors, bacteria, viruses, and mold. While destroying dangerous particles in the air, the ozone (O3) loses one of its oxygen atoms leaving behind O2, the clean, pure oxygen we need to survive.
Advanced Pure Air™ units strictly limit their activated oxygen output to well below all EPA standards. Additionally, this feature can be turned off so the unit will not produce activated oxygen with the remote.
The Advanced Pure Air™ air purifiers are equipped with high-efficiency True HEPA filters. These are rated MERV13 and are best for particle filtration, including household dust, soot, pollen, bacteria, and germs. HEPA filters are made from very tiny glass fibers that are tightly woven into a very absorbent air filter. Studies indicate that HEPA filters are 99.97% effective in capturing harmful airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns, i.e., 300 times smaller than the width of a single human hair.
All Advanced Pure Air™ air purifiers are equipped with Activated Carbon Filters that remove odors, gaseous particles, and other contaminants that HEPA filters alone may miss.
Activated carbon is charcoal that has been treated with oxygen to open up millions of tiny microscopic pores between the carbon atoms, allowing it to filter out even the smallest contaminates. Activated charcoal is the most effective filter against cigarette smoke and is effective against paint fumes, toilet odors, poison gases, and pet smells.
When coupled with a 254nm UV light, the Advanced Pure Air™ air purifier is significantly more effective at killing airborne biologicals than HEPA and UV only. Photocatalysis uses ultraviolet light striking a TiO2 target to create oxidation which is extremely effective in removing mold, mildew, bacteria, dust mites, and more. When the UV light rays hit the TiO2 surface, a chemical reaction occurs which produces what are known as hydroxyl radicals. These radicals quickly react with VOCs, micro bacteria, viruses, and more neutralizing them.
Negative Ion Generator
The Advanced Pure Air™ Negative Ion generators produce negative ions while the air purifier is turned on, which helps continuously purify the air outside the unit. Nearly all airborne particles have a positive charge while negative ions have a negative charge. As a result of their opposite charges, the negative ions and positive particles neutralize each other. Studies have shown that negative ion generators clear smoke, decrease carbon monoxide levels, reduce infections in hospital emergency rooms, reduce driver fatigue and even help relieve clinical depression.
The Advanced Pure Air™ purifiers are equipped with an Electrostatic Precipitator that functions as an electric dust collector that traps dust, soot, pollen, mold, pet dander, and most other airborne pollutants. The collection grid of the Electrostatic Precipitator has a strong negative charge that attracts and traps many of the positively charged pollutants as the air stream passes through.
All Advanced Pure Air™ home air purifiers are equipped with a washable ultra-fine open-cell pre-filter to remove larger particles of dust, soot, pollen, and pet hair and dander from the air coming into the unit. This filter removes most of the larger pollutants and allergens before they reach the other filters. The washable pre-filter also helps extend the life and efficiency of the HEPA filter and the unit as a whole.
Air Quality Sensors
The Advanced Pure Air™ Purifiers feature an optional (on/off) Automatic Air Quality Sensor that continuously monitors the air in your home or office. When the air quality falls below a predetermined level, the purifier will automatically change the fan speed and maximize air quality.
