The Austin Healthmate Plus is specifically designed with chemically sensitive people in mind. In addition to the HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arresting) filter and carbon/zeolite filter, standard to all Austin Air Purifiers, the Healthmate Plus contains carbon infused with potassium iodide to help provide a superior environment, removed of dust, pollen, and other particles, as well as offensive odors.
How does it work?
The Austin Healthmate Plus air purifier employs the highest efficiency 5 stage air filtration system to ensure the best air purification performance in dust, smoke, odors and chemical removal. An advanced backward curved blower draws air through a durable 360 degree perforated steel air intake, and is channeled through a pre filter that traps larger particles, and then moves to the HEPA filter, which captures 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns in size (300 times smaller than the width of a human hair). The large activated granular carbon/zeolite canister with potassium iodide located beneath the HEPA filter is crucial for the effective removal of 4000 chemical substances and noxious odors in the air. The Austin Healthmate Plus does not produce ozone, ions, or negative ions that can be dangerous to those with respiratory problems like asthma and emphysema.
Activated Carbon& Zeolite with Potassium Iodide
Activated carbon is one of the best-known substances for removing gases and odors from the air. The Austin Healthmate Plus uses the best source of activated carbon derived from coconut shells. Zeolite is a natural cream-colored mineral that has the capability of capturing small molecules such as ammonia, formaldehyde and sulfides. Potassium Iodide is a catalyst that breaks down formaldehyde and related substances into a form more easily absorbed by the carbon/zeolite mixture. They are all placed into one large cartridge that scrubs incoming air of all odors and chemicals. The enhanced absorption capacity traps other chemicals such as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). The Austin Healthmate uses a minimum of 13.5 pounds of activated carbon and zeolite and is useful in newly constructed houses that often contain formaldehyde in new rugs, wood paneling, and upholstry.
Low Cost Operation with Little Noise
The Austin Healthmate Plus' quality electric motor is specifically designed for quiet and energy efficient operation. A vibration free welded steel body reduces motor noise to a gentle background hush. The sound level is a mere 64 decibels on the high setting, and barely a whisper at 30 decibels on the low setting. The energy efficient Permanent Split Capacitor (PSC) electric motor draws a minimal electric current. When on the high setting, power consumption is below 100 watts, reducing operation costs down to pennies a day.
Attractive Design in 3 Colors
The Austin Healthmate Plus Machine is available in your choice of white, black, or sandstone to compliment the décor of any home or office. The baked-on powdered coat finish is a non-gloss, textured surface, and is resistant to scratches, scuffs, or smudges. The machine is also easily cleaned with the wipe of a cloth and will maintain its attractive appearance for years to come.
