Air Purifiers for Viruses and Bacteria (including COVID-19)

AllerAir Air Purifiers used for Viruses & Bacteria feature Super HEPA filters, which unlike Traditional HEPA can filter microorganisms at 0.125 Micron. Germicidal UV also comes equipped on the Air Cleaners, which kills Viruses and Bacteria that is airborne.

Additionally AllerAir Air Purifiers are made of a all metal housing, which can be easily disinfected. Air Purifiers made of plastic cannot be easily disinfected.

In a Medical environment where an Aerosol-generating procedure is done, the droplets become Aerosolized particles, where the droplets become like a very fine mist and are in the air for a longer period of time.

AllerAir Air Purifiers have not been tested for the removal of the new Coronavirus yet, as it is a new strain that was discovered in 2019. However the virus that causes COVID-19 is approximately 0.125 micron (125 nanometers) in diameter. Therefore, it falls within the particle-size range that HEPA filters capture with extraordinary efficiency: 0.01 micron (10 nanometers) and above.

How COVID-19 Spreads

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
  • These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
  • COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

How to Protect Yourself & Others

At the moment there is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. In addition, the best way to stay safe is to follow the recommendations from the CDC

  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid close contact
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily

How the AirMedic Pro Air Purifier Works to Kill Airborne Viruses & Bacteria

Super HEPA Filters

In order to properly filter airborne viruses and or Bacteria such as the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), An Air Purifier would need to filter smaller micron particles / microorganisms from the air.

The size of the Coronavirus is 0.125 micron in size. Only An Air Purifier with Super HEPA can filter 0.125 micron.

Note: Air Purifiers with Traditional HEPA filter can only filter down to .3 Micron.

Germicidal UV

AllerAir uses a Germical UV Bulb, which is effective at killing airborne Viruses and Bacteria. The UV-C Light also neutralizes mold spores, which damages the DNA.

An Air Purifier equipped with the UV bulb is effective at killing many airborne Germs, Viruses, and bacteria. Certain pathogens would require more time to eradicate, which the AirMedic Series Air Purifiers are designed for.
