inside story on clean air.
At the heart of the cleaning process is the
filter, which over the last 10 years has been consistently ranked #1 in
the world in any number of consumer, and commercial tests.
The HealthMate™ Filter
Large dust filter.
|A full 15 Lbs. of Carbon Zeolite
mix to filter out odors and gases.
|True Medical HEPA Filter Media to
remove sub-mircron particles.
There are 3 different Austin Air Healthmate™
filters; the HealthMate™ filter, the HealthMate™ SuperBlend filter, and
the HEGA filter.
The basic scientific principals involved in
all of the Austin Air filters are rooted in the use of activated carbon,
True Medical HEPA filtration media, and depending on the filter’s purpose
impregnated carbon. By forcing the air through these various filtration
media our filter removes 99.97% of all air borne particulate matter larger
than 0.3 microns, while eliminating ever 3000 toxic gases and odors. No
other personal air cleaner comes close to the level of performance
achieved with the Austin Air filter.
An unusually large amount of filtration media
is used in the air cleaners because the Austin Air filter is engineered to
last for up to 5 years. Built in is a pre-filter that surrounds the
3-stage filter and this pre-filter helps to significantly extend the life
of the 3-stage filter. In order to properly maintain the effectiveness of
the filter all you have to do is periodically vacuum the outside of the
machine, clearing away the larger and most visible particulate matter...we
call it dust.
several other features that are built
into all Austin Air cleaners. These include
solid steel construction, a non-toxic, painted finish, a long lasting
energy efficient PSC
motor and the specially engineered pure air vent, which creates what we
call, the Clean Air Pocket™.
When you’re having trouble breathing, you
can’t wait even fifteen minutes for the room to clear. The Austin Clean
Air Pocket™ is designed to deliver clean air to the breathing :one in
fifteen seconds flat, unlike any other technology on the market. So you
can breathe a sigh of relief immediately.
Austin Air Systems, located in Buffalo, New
York has been manufacturing a HEPA air cleaner since 1990 that produces no
ozone, and actually adsorbs ozone into its carbon filter. In light of
recent news events aimed at competitors who utilize ionization and
electrostatic precipitation as a means of room air cleaning; we want to
remind the American consumer that HEPA air filtration is a safe and
healthy way to clean indoor air. Indoor air according to the EPA is 2-5
more polluted than outdoor air. HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate
Arresting) filtration removes 99.97% of air-borne particulate down to 0.3
microns. Austin Air cleaners are used in schools, hospitals, homes and
offices worldwide. Austin Air was chosen for use during the World Trade
Center disaster and in 2003 by FEMA for use in Anniston, Alabama where the
destruction of chemical weapons was mandated. In Anniston our air cleaners
were placed in over 20,000 homes in the event of a chemical disaster.
Austin Air is committed to providing the consumer a safe quality product
made here in the US that comes with a 5-year warranty and 30-day money
