Airpura Industries, a Canadian company, specializes in the manufacturing of high quality air purification systems. They have a very diverse line of products that get rid of airborne allergens, mold spores, smoke, odors, or chemicals. They use a blend of the latest in filtration technology with industry leading standards in all of their products.
Their products are constructed of powder coated steel and house the latest in HEPA filter and activated carbon technology. They also offer advanced models, that include UV germicidal lamps for eradicating airborne pathogens and mold. Airpura is also conscious of its role as an environmental company, Airpura Industries is determined to operate in the greenest way possible while manufacturing an excellent product that improves the living environment of their clients.
The Airpura High Efficiency Filtration System
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 true HEPA filter traps airborne particles. These filters were developed by the Atomic Energy Commission to trap radioactive particles. They can capture 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns.
Adsorption with Activated Carbon
Activated carbon is the only safe, cost effective way to trap noxious gases and odors. 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. Activated carbon is the substance that keeps military personnel safe from poisonous gases. It is also used for water filtration.
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.
All of the Airpura product line is constructed using powder coated steel This ensures a very strong unit. This manufacturing process also eliminates any out gassing from plastic parts.
Backward curved motorized impellers minimize vibrations and noise. Using a simple and direct internal airflow design eliminates air turbulence and increases efficiency. Also the use of a variable speed fan control lets you adjust the airflow that's right for you.
Airpura builds high quality air purifiers and offers many options to all of their product lines. It is impossible to list all of their options here as many are highly technical. If you do not see one of their products here that meets your needs give us a call and let's see if we can custom build an air purifier that can meet your specific needs.
