Air filtration and purification systems

Our air purification solutions remove harmful particles and gases to give a more hygienic experience, while our air care solutions deliver fragrant, odour-free washrooms and customer areas.

A cough or sneeze can expel germs as far as 27 feet at almost 160km an hour. According to Harvard Health, coronavirus in aerosol form, spread through droplets that become airborne when people cough, sneeze, talk, or exhale, can remain in the air for up to three hours.

Our range of air hygiene solutions like the Viruskiller go beyond conventional air purifiers as they actively filter pollutants, allergens, VOCs eff, and de-active airborne pathogens in a single air pass. As part of an integrated hygiene solution, this helps businesses prevent closures, reduce sick staff days and protect their reputation.

What does an air filtration system do?

An air filtration system is a device that is designed to remove contaminants from the air. There are several types of air filtration systems, each of which uses different methods to filter the air. Some common types of air filtration systems include:

  1. HEPA purifiers: HEPA purifiers use mechanical filters to trap pollutants and contaminants in the air. HEPA purifiers effectively remove many pollutants and contaminants, including dust, pollen, smoke, and pet dander.
  2. Ultraviolet Sterilisers: Ultraviolet sterilisers use UV light or ozone to kill bacteria and viruses in the air. These systems effectively remove microorganisms that can cause illness, making them a good option for hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
  3. Ionisers: Ionisers release ions into the air, which attach to pollutants and contaminants, making them easier to filter out. Ionisers effectively remove a wide range of pollutants, including smoke and dust.
  4. Adsorbent air purifiers: Adsorbent air purifiers work by passing the air through a bed of adsorbent material. These systems effectively remove many pollutants and contaminants, including odours, smoke, and chemical vapours.

Overall, the primary function of an air filtration system is to improve the air quality in space by removing contaminants and improving the overall air quality. These systems can be used in various settings, including homes, offices, and public spaces, to help improve indoor air quality and reduce risk of respiratory and other health problems.



Air purification solutions

The National Environmental Agency (NEA) has released guidelines for building owners, managers and building operations specialists to aid in creating safe workplaces. Along with a general inspection for HVAC functionality, the NEA recommends implementing high-efficiency filters, like those in our units, to increase air filtration as much as possible.

InspireAir 72 provides a fresh air and cleanliness solution. A combination of HEPA and carbon filters work to remove even the smallest particles, so your business can breathe easy.

Our VIRUSKILLER™ air purifiers kill Coronavirus in the air* and are specifically designed to bring control to indoor environments.

How does an air filtration system work, and how can I improve the air quality at my premises?

An air filtration system works by drawing in air from a room and passing it through a series of filters to remove contaminants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), airborne particles, and biological contaminants like mould and bacteria. The filtered air is then returned to the room, improving indoor air quality.

There are several ways to improve the air quality at your premises:

  1. Use high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters: These are highly effective at trapping particles, including viruses like SARS-CoV-2.
  2. Use air purifiers: These devices use a combination of filters and other technologies to remove a wide range of contaminants from the air.
  3. Use HVAC systems: HVAC systems can improve the air quality in a building by controlling temperature, humidity, and air circulation, thus preventing mould and mildew growth, reducing dust mite populations, and killing viruses and pollutants.
  4. Regularly replace the filters: Over time, the filters in an air filtration system can become clogged with trapped particles, reducing their effectiveness. It's important to regularly replace the filters to ensure the system is operating at peak performance.
  5. Clean air filters regularly: Air filters are designed to trap particles such as dust, pollen, and other pollutants, and over time, they can become clogged with debris. Regular cleaning of air filters can help to ensure that they are functioning properly and running efficiently and effectively. 
  6. Ventilate the room: Proper ventilation helps to remove contaminants from the air by replacing indoor air with outdoor air. This can be achieved by opening windows or using a mechanical ventilation system.
  7. Address the source of contaminants: To improve indoor air quality truly, it's crucial to identify and address the sources of contaminants in the room. This might include using air-purifying plants, sealing off damp or mouldy areas, or using low-VOC paints and cleaning products.
